Moving Through Yahoo Email Problems
« on: 26/08/2009 04:13:13 »
Hi, my new install of XP and Firefox has a problem in email, can't go from normal to spam, to drafts, jammed.

Then Explorer gives error 999, when I try to log in.

Is this from my computer?

I think Yahoo! have changed something again recently because I've been having problems too. Compose pages won't go away, for instance, giving the impression a mail has not been sent, when in reality it has...

For some weeks I can't get access to the Yahoo email filters page, no "Under construction" sign, it just shows a blank screen.  

I've tried different computers & browsers without success, the fault seems to be at the Yahoo end.

Maybe these are side-effects of Yahoo's recent revamp to "all-new mail".

I think RD may be right about the revamp to "all-new mail." I cant use the new look as it does not like the screen resolution on this net-book so I'm still using the classic yahoo look and that works fine. Try changing back to classic and see if it makes a difference.

The email filters page is currently not available to me using either "classic" or "all-new" Yahoo email,

[I last saw this page via "classic" about month ago].

It's broken because you're using Yahoo. Set it up to forward to your new gmail account.

Set it up to forward to your new gmail account.

I tried googlemail in the past but I found that the way it reads your emails to offer you tailored advertisements was irritating.

Use lavabit instead?

I'd never heard of Lavabit, (apparently very few have) ...

Yahoo has "tens of millions" of customers.
