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) ...
