Usually it's not your email that gets infected, its your system that gets infected. If this is the case, then you'll want to do some system scans for malicious software.
Some infections end up looking through your contact list/address books for other emails, and sends itself out. Once this has happened there's nothing you can do except tell your contacts to not open your previous email(s).
Run "Spybot - Search & Destroy" to check for malware, you may also want to invest in an anti-virus program to protect from future threats (ESET NOD32 is a good one).
Here is the link to Spybot:

It appears from amessage I received from yahoo that they think I may be a spammer. How do I prove I'm not and never have been one of those people. Now I can't send my friends.

Your computer might have been compromised and has become a botnet. Run both Hitman Pro and Malwarebytes on your computer and see if it finds any infections.

Also, change your password on your yahoo email account right away.

The error, LaunchEmptyResponse, occurred when trying to connect to Yahoo! Mail.

Hi. I Think that's the error LAUNCH FFC-1. If yes, there are hundreds or thousands of people experiencing that problem. You will experienced that problem if you are using BT Yahoo! Mail. Try to switch back to Yahoo! Mail Classic. I think yahoo is aware with the problem, maybe they are upgrading the servers or anything that's why this problem occurs. Try to switch to other browser and if the problem still exist I think you need to wait until the problem fixed by Yahoo.

I get the The error, LaunchEmptyResponse, occurred when trying to connect to Yahoo! Mail.

Yahoo! Mail is still down. I think this is one of the longest ever downtime. It's been more than 3 hours in some areas.
Hope they will fix it very soon.

Someone has gotten into my yahoo mail account and is sending out mass mailings to individuals in my directory. How do I cancel and stop my present email address.

I would first go in and change the password on the account... And I think you need to contact Yahoo inorder to cancel the account. My account was hacked about 2 yrs ago and it was sending out adult links to tons of people. But all I did was change the password and scanned my computer for any infections.

here is a link to cancel your account if you choose this option.

Best of luck...

I am unable to open e-mail's I need to know how to fix it. I believe it happen when I ungraded to yaho 9 I had know problem with 8.

I think there is no serious relation between yahoo messenger and yahoo mail because yahoo mail is web base system and messenger is independent system. But you can try to uninstall yahoo toolbar and yahoo mail advisor from your system, Go to Control Panel click Add or remove programs and click to remove....
Again if you using any proxy please remove it.

or check if there is any anti-virus software or Internet security software or firewall software which blocking yahoo mail.
For further please contact us.

Thanks for being with Fixya.
Good luck
