Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Is this at home or on a work computer at the office?

If at work, your network administrator may have blocked outside email addresses. Try going to www.hotmail.com and webmail.aol.com . Chances are, if you can’t get to those, then outside email is being blocked at work.first of all check with ur network admin whether it is barred or not.then check with ur lappy settings..delete cookies

    Is there any new software you have installed? And just check to make sure you don't have any spyware. If you have the Yahoo Toolbar try and uninstall it and see if there is a difference. Keep us informed Regards Newton PS: Also check for any unwanted software that might block you connectivity or delay.

    On the computer that has a problem, clear your internet caches, i.e. history, cookies, offline files. Then open a command prompt and ping mail.yahoo.com. It should resolve to the ip address and come back with a response. If it doesn't you may have some type of malware that has altered your host file. I would recommend booting in to safe mode and running Spybot S&D, Adaware, and/or Windows Defender just to be sure, and scanning with an updated antivirus program in any case.

    I had a similar problem with one user's PC. When she installed the update for Adobe reader, it did install the Yahoo! toolbar and messed up the IE setting. When I uninstalled the toolbar, the problem is gone. I also agree with Sidzilla regarding the DOS mode. It is what I always do if I want to test the connectivity with a web site. Sometimes the router on the way to the web site is down or extremely slow, so you are getting the time-out error message: "..cannot be displayed"
