Yahoo mail problems

My daughter has recently been having problems opening her Yahoo mail - basically she can't! Inbox won't open at all. The only known change at my end is that I upgraded to 1Mb connection a few weeks ago. I haven't changed any security settings on my firewall or browser recently. I have tried Firefox insted of IE, shut down my firewall, opened up all port that have been sugessted - all to no avail.

As a test I signed up my self (while at work) and have the same problem when I try it from home (using my laptop rather than my daughters machine). Everything else works fine.

Help please.....

Are you using any IP blocking software such as protowall? Peerguadian? it could be your firewall as well, does it scan web pages for adverts, java scripts.

Finally, it could be Yahoo are having problems.

Yahoo mail problems

Aaron,

Nope, I disabled my software firewall (ZoneAlarm Pro) and my router firewall. Basically I opened up every thing. It has to be in the conection (router-wan) as my laptop shows the same problem at home but not at work. My guess was MTU settings or a blocked port on my router but I'm damned if I can find it <sigh>

Well I've just tested mine as it don't work either :shock:

I'm guess Yahoo must have some sort of problem.

Yahoo mail problems

Hi Aaron,
I've just found a work around but it isn't ideal - try using a "public proxy" aka an anonymous proxy.

Either F9 is blocking somthing or Yahoo is partialy blocking F9. I will contact F9 and Yahoo and see if they can explain it.

let me know if yours works using the proxy.


Cheers,


Bill
