May be its the work of virus or you would have been the scapegoat of some hacker! change your password..send mail to all in your contact list that 'My account might have been hacked'. and don't click on links in mails received from unknown and even known people in future!

People have sent me mails to my yahoo account but when I log into yahoomail the mail is not seen. i.e new mails are not coming in at all. I have checked all the settings and they seemed OK. Please help


Send an email to any one of these people and ask them to use the 'Reply' function of their mail program. Specifically ask them to use the generated 'to:' address and not to type in your email address. You want to eliminate 'finger trouble (splelign erorrs)' as a possibility.

If you receive these replies, the problem might be with the senders not typing in your name perfectly. They could also be spelling the domain portion of the address incorrectly. gmail.com is not the same as gmail.net and gmail.us - if those even exist.

Check your spam folder. In gmail, I have never had a problem with real messages going in to the spam folder.I never even look anymore.

At a former employer i had lots of messages flagged as possible SPAM with the word SPAM added to the Subject field of the message.

My yahoo mail is compromised. I get delivery failure messages when I did not send any and friends are complaining about messages from my account that I did not send. How do I fix ,this.


Something that you opened has 'read' your contacts list and sent a spam message to them all.

Delete all messages received since it began happening just in case someone you know sent it without realising. Sounds like Malware virus or similar.

Your message was not sent


Your account has been temporarily blocked from sending messages. This block can be caused by sending messages that trigger our spam filters, or by having too many recipients in one email. We encourage you to review the contents and recipient list of your message, and try sending it at after an hour or two. Doing so will usually resolve the matter.
If you are still unable to send messages after a 24-hour period, please read our FAQ for more information and to request Customer Care assistance.


We apologize for the inconvenience.



Thanks,

Someone is sending emails to all of my contacts and it is not me...how do I make this stop, short of closing my yahoo account... my email address is jeepgirltaylor@yahoo.com if this cannot be...


Hi,

There are chances that someone has knows your password and is sending mails from your email id. Check your sent folder to find out if someone has sent mail from your email id.

Or

Someone is using spam email ( third party ) and enter your email id in from field and sending the mails.

When sending an email using yahoo mail program ,


Make sure that you are not on the blocked list of the reciepent. If this is not he case ask him to check the spam/bulk folder. This is becausemails with certain keywords are automatically redirected there. Ask the reciepent to open it and mark your mail as "Not spam". That should prevent this from happening in future.
