Hello Aylene.

There are 2 points to this.

1. You may have a virus pretending to be your email sender so that it can glean your password.

2. You are using Yedda to send emails (which I believe use the AOL mail system...tho I may be wrong on that)

To sort this out do the following.

1. Scan your computer with a GOOD checker, like norton, or AVG. And then after that, use Ad-Aware to get rid of adware from your system, then try sending it again.

2. Get a better email address. Use something like Yahoo, or Googlemail.

That should solve your problem.

Mostlikely you are infected with either a Virus or a peace of spyware. Go get Ad-aware http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2008/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5&cdlPid=10844457 and install it and run a scan on your comptuer. when you are done with that go get Spybot Search and destroy http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html?tag=mncol&cdlPid=10861988 and install/run it. once you are done go to http://housecall.antivirus.com and run a free virus scann.

if this doesnt help please give us more information. What email system are you you using? Yahoo? Google? and are you using Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Thunderbird, or something else to check your email?

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:
https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/adnbspfree-mail-sln15803.html
To know more about blocking ads on Yahoo Mail, refer to the following Yahoo webpage:

Camot send or receive out llook exspres


SMTP Server
In the fight against unsolicited commercial email (spam), some Internet service providers require their subscribers to send mail through the ISP's own SMTP servers. If you experience problems sending email, please contact your ISP to determine if it requires different SMTP server settings. You will need to use the ISP's SMTP server in place of Yahoo!'s SMTP server when configuring your POP mail client.
The following is a partial list of ISPs that require you to use their SMTP servers. If your ISP is among them, try replacing the Yahoo! SMTP server with the ISP server in your POP mail client settings, or consult the ISP's help files. If your ISP does not appear in the list below, please contact your ISP directly for more information.

Can not send email from outlook 2003. send: smtp.att.yahoo.com ssl 465


Firstly you need to enable the POP3 settings in yahoo by going to the Options>Mail options>POP & Forwarding.
After that you need  Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) : pop.mail.yahoo.com

Outgoing Mail : smtp.mail.yahoo.com

In Advanced Tab Outgoing mail Server (SMTP) : 465 (SSL)
Incoming mail (POP3) : 110 (SSL) OR  995 (SSL)

I am attempting to transfere E mail facility to windows mail. They cannot verify the host/ server as tools.sky.com please verify the correct address for incoming and outgoing.


Applogies for the copy and paste, but it's rather long winded to type, but sky tools is not the email setting, see below:-

1.Open Outlook Express, click Tools then select Accounts 2. Click the Mail tab, then click Add and select Mail 3. The wizard will start. Type in your name then click Next 4. Enter your email address then click Next 5. Leave the My Incoming Mail Server is a POP3 Server drop down box as POP3. In Incoming Mail Server enter: pop.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces). In Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server enter: smtp.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces). 6. In the Account Name Box enter the first part of your @sky.com email address (everything before the @ sign). In the Password Box, enter the password for your @sky.com email account, then click Next. 7. Click Finish 8. To complete the acount creation process click Tools then select Accounts 9. Click the Mail tab, then click Properties 10. Click the My server requires authentication box to place a tick inside. Click OK 11. Repeat the above process for each mail account you want to set up, including sub accounts. Each sub account will have a different email address and password. If you're having trouble sending email from Outlook Express (or other email software), it may mean you need to switch on SMTP authentication.

Email's


You are with lrger e-mails in your server, blocking the download of all e-mails by Outlook. Every time you try to receive all again, the same comes, even if you have deleted them, you just do this in your computer!
The solution is enter in yours e-mail server by the webmail, delete all the big e-mails that there are there, then go out, and try to receive the ones that are still there, by outlook.
