Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

I have been trying to log into my Yahoo mail and in past few days, I am getting this error message: "Content Encoding Error The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression. * Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." What should I do? My computer's internet connection is just fine. Thanks.

You may want to try to use different internet browser to make sure that the problem has nothing to do with the security certificate. If you are using IE, you may download Mozilla Firefox. But if the same problem occur, try to use a public computer. Using a public computer, you can be sure that you are using a computer that's connected on different network.

But I think, the problem has something to do with the internet browser only.

Thank you and good luck!

    Thanks! I have been using Mozilla, and I also tried IE but the same thing. I guess I will go to the library to check on my e-mail.

    I tried to contact Yahoo but 'contact us' in their website shows the same error message so I can't even contact them. This started a few days ago, and have not happened to me before...

    Thank you!

Hi i need a help for the pass 15days my mail have been block . my passwork and ID does not work i have try so many ways to open but no way. i dont know wherether someone is using it. i need to open this...


Part 1:
It is very rare that Yahoo Mail rejects a mail as soon as the connection is established. By consulting your SMTP logs, you may encounter the following error messages:
553 VS99-IP1 deferred - see related help topic. If you see this error message, see this page.
451 VS1-IP Excessive unknown recipients - possible Open Relay More information (#4.1.8)
451 VS1-MF Excessive unknown recipients - possible Open Relay More information (#4.4.5)
If you see one of these error messages, see this page.
If you do not see any error messages above (or similar text), it means that your emailsare blocked or d?prioritis?s.

I want to change my yahoomail language from italia to english


Your country/language setting - what Yahoo! Mail calls your "Preferred Content" - can be adjusted by following these steps:
-Click on your user name which is located at the top of your Yahoo! Mail page, next to the Yahoo! Mail logo. This will open a pull-down menu.
-Click Edit My Account.
-This will open a new window in which you will be prompted to re-enter your password. You will then be re-directed to your Yahoo! ID Card.
-Under "Member Information" in your Yahoo! ID Card, click the Edit link. This will take you to "Member Details."
-Click on the link next to Preferred Content and from there you can select from a list that best meets your content needs.
-Click Finished.

Are you seeing garbled characters in a non-US-language email? If so, you can change Yahoo! Mail's character encoding setting. It's easy! Here's how:
-In the tool-bar, click More Actions and select Set Encodings.
-From the list that appears, select the encoding that matches the message's content.

Note: Only one character encoding set may be viewed at a time. And in this case, changing your browser's encoding setting will not work.

When i try to read my msg on yahoo.. i get an internet error


Kadi
Hope this help. Now let's try a few thing

1. First. Yahoo Beta Mail? Is that what you are using?
If so Clear your browsers cashe.
In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
On the General tab, under Browsing history, click Delete.
Click Delete files, and then click Yes.
Click Close, and then click OK.
You did that right? Now Completely re-Download all your messages. Every one of them.
Wait until they are downloaded. Don`t hurry. Hows that?
2. Well try this. = 2. In the new Yahoo! Mail, you don’t do this with your browser anymore.
Now, just change your
character encoding setting right in Yahoo! Mail!

Here’s how:

In the toolbar, click More Actions and select Set Encodings.
From the list that appears, select the encoding that matches the message’s content.
Note: Only one character encoding set may be viewed at a time. And in this case,
changing your
browser’s encoding setting will not work. Hows that?
Still can`t get it? Try Switch Back at the top of your page. (Don`t worry you can return)
Hows that?
3. Now you are in Original Mail Right? Messages all there?
If not try this. = Select any email where the header information is displayed, but there is
nothing in the
"body" of the message where you would expect to find text, etc.
Move your mouse to the area of the expected "body" of the message and right-click...on
the menu that appears, click on "Encoding"...on the menu that appears, if "Auto Select"
has a check mark, leave it as is...if not click "Auto Select"; then this menu will
disappear...right click again in the "body" to cause the same menu to display again...then
click on "Western European (Windows)"...you should now be able to view the "body" of
all messages that you couldn't view before...obviously, if the problem somehow occurs
again, do the same procedure described above again. I have no idea how or why these
settings get "changed" or "corrupted" after everyday use, but apparently they sometimes
do.
Hows that?
Now if those steps dont work do the following below.

Ok PC has problems then. Update your operating system, Browser, Shockwave Flash ,
Java. Everything. Get all patches. The whole works. Also try Firefox browser.

Note in Original / Old / Yahoo Mail in a pinch try this. =
Put message in Print Copy. Then read it. OR
Click Reply on Message to read it. Then backbutton out. OR
Put message in Excel or Wordpad to read it

Thank you. Please ket me know the results
