Yahoo e-mail

By brad_mankoff ·
We are unable to use Yahoo Web mail, but MSN and AOL work fine. We have a new T1 line and new routers and firewall. The people that configured the firewall assure me that the appropriate ports are open to enable these services.

Try This

by haileyan In reply to Yahoo e-mail

Not sure if it is Java but try downloading the latest Java client at http://www.java.com. Microsoft no longer makes a java client.

If that does not do it. Check your host file for bogud entry for yahoo.com or mail.yahoo.com. In windows XP it will be in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\ETC\.

In Windows NT/2000 the host file will be in C:\WINNT\System32\Drivers\ETC.

You may also want to search the hard drive fo all files named HOST. You can open them in Notepad. If there is any entry for yahoo delete its line and save the file.

Also....If you have an internal DNS server make sure there are no incorrect entries on it for yahoo.com.
