Sounds like a hack.

Copy and paste your contacts to a Notepad document. Or, if it's easier, in Yahoo with your contacts open, press the PrtScr SysRec button, open a Word document, and paste. If you have lots of contacts, scroll down and repeat until you've copied them all somewhere outside of Yahoo mail.

Then delete all your contacts from Yahoo mail (you can restore them later).

Then change your Yahoo password to something that can't be easily hacked by a computer (i.e. not a name, and not a word in the dictionary). Ideally it should be something with letters and numbers. Initials and a date of birth work well, e.g. DaS180975 or something like that. Even better, intersperse the letters and numbers: D18a09S75.

That should put a stop to both the hacking and the unauthorised use of your contacts list. Give it a couple of weeks before you restore your contacts.

If that still doesn't fix it, you might need to get a new email account. With Gmail you can import email from a previous account, so that might be worth considering.

Good luck!

How to get rid of ads on my screen when I go to my in box in Yayoo mail


You can either temporarily hide the ads that keep popping up on your Yahoo Mail page or block them permanently. To know how, refer to the steps below.

To temporarily hide ads (for free email accounts):
1)Sign in to your Yahoo Mail account
2)When, while viewing your list of emails or a particular email, an ad pops up, you can see a right-facing arrow between your email and the advertisement. Click on this arrow.
3)The ad will get hidden temporarily.
(Important: This blocks the ads temporarily only and as soon as you perform the actions like refreshing the Yahoo Mail page, marking a particular email as spam, replying to an email, or just clicking on any of the sections in the navigation-menu located on the left of the page, a new ad may pop up again).

To permanently remove graphical and text ads:
Yahoo Mail has recently come up with "Yahoo Ad Free Mail" service to enable you to get rid of graphical and text ads on a permanent basis when viewing your Yahoo Mail account from a computer. You need to sign up for Yahoo Ad Free Mail account before starting using this service.
(Note: Before signing up for Yahoo Ad Free Mail account, please check if the service is available in your region. Also, even after subscribing to the service, the subscribers may still get the text ads that come up on Yahoo Mail on a mobile web browser and the text ads that come up in the "Basic Mail" interface of Yahoo Mail on a computer. To know what Basic Mail is, refer to the following Yahoo webpage: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/basic-mail-sln5171.html)
To know more about Yahoo Ad Free Mail service, refer to the following Yahoo webpage:

My yahoo mail is sending strange messages to my customers trhougt addressses of my mail list this cause to me alot of troubles please help me to discover what happen


This most probably is because of an attacking virus or spam email that you may have accidentally registered to and is now attacking your email. Delete your email account as soon as possible and it's suggested you open a new one as well as scanning your computer for malware, spyware and viruses!

How do i unblock an e-mail from a friend, i think i put him in my spam blocker by mistake how do i get him out?


really this can vary from email provider.

I will give you a few things to try ..If this does not work , write back with your email provider for better instructions.

Try going into your email account: look for spam folder.. click on it.
find the email or email address you sent to spam. click or check its box.

now find the move to/send to button somewhere on your screen tools or menu.
Send or move it back to your inbox.
this should correct the problem.
___________________________________________

If it does not go into your contacts and add that particular address to your contacts.. by adding it to your personal contacts it should stop it from going to spam.

please remember to leave positive rating for my answer and a testimonial if it helped.

My email address is abrarhoney35tiger@yahoo.com . Please tell me why my account is blocked?


Your account may be blocked by yahoo for 2 reasons.

1. Your account has been spamming or
2. Your account has been reported for abuse.

If you are not the one doing those spamming or abuse, then your account might got compromised. It is advised that you get a new yahoo account since your blocked yahoo address was already harvested by spammers or spambots and was able to used it to send out abuse or spam. Make sure you secure your new account by using a strong password.

How tp prevent SPAM from flooding my yahoo inbox?


Sometimes those attractive featured ads can be really dangerous for your account safety. Opening your inbox and finding a flood of spam mails is irritating though, but Yahoo has an option to keep your inbox clean from spam mails. To avoid spam you add filters to different folders contain different criteria. It will also help you to sort and organize your incoming mails. Filters are specially built in such a way that it automatically redirects your mail according to the respective criteria. Learn more about "how to create Yahoo filters" here:

Receiving thousands of emails as ''undeliverable'' ''postmaster''


Unfortunately, Yahoo does not have the option to only receive emails from people in your contacts or address book. The more websites you click on, the more "cookies" will be placed in your browser by ad trackers, and the more "spam" or junk mail you will receive. Try going into your internet options and disabling third party cookies, or you could open a hotmail (MSN) account where you have the option of only receiving emails from those people in your address book.
