Yahoo Mail Problem 2009
I am loyal to Yahoo Mail; I have used their email system now for about 7-8 years, something like that.

I highly recommend a person use either Yahoo or Gmail, an email like @hobotraveler.com, or AOL or your student email system is a recipe for disaster. (I have two designated servers, I am not a boy in this game.)

There is a problem with Yahoo Mail that is driving me crazy.

I will write an email.
Click on send.

That loading jobby will come up and sit there saying it is loading, then after awhile it stops. The send button is inactive; I cannot click on it again. I cannot CTRL A the content to copy, I cannot do anything. It just sits and looks at me, I have to open a new window and start over. Some of the links are live on the page, but the action I wished to perform is crashed.

This may be a result of slow bandwidth or slow internet, but this is a fatal problem. I am thinking I may use my email client Foxmail to send and receive all emails to circumvent this problem. The problem is the SMTP is sometimes blocked in the worst of areas. I change internet access often, I cannot rely on any configurations to be stable.

My strategy is this,
I delete, reply and work online when possible.

I then download read emails to my Foxmail email client to keep an archive of old emails I can read offline. If want, I can download all of them and always work offline.

Andy, I have also recently had this problem with Yahoo Mail (loading) when I press the check mail button -- it takes about 10 seconds of doing nothing to get past that point. I am not sure if it is only since I came to Colombia and used Yahoo Mail here but, in any case, the problem only started recently. Until you posted this, I assumed it had something to do with Flash and the fact that I am using a netbook which runs Flash slowly combined with recent changes in the Yahoo mail presentation page.

I have the HP laptop with Vista, I think I am fully loaded, this is truly a problem.

Andy, this problem is not as bad in the last day. I think my Firefox was automatically updated on my machine yesterday, and that is probably the difference. Now, it is like a one half second delay instead of 10 seconds. I checked both my Yahoo accounts, and it was drastically improved in both.

Have you been using Firefox? I think my upgrade to 3.0.13 fixed this (or else Yahoo coincidentally changed something at the same time). I have not tried anything in Internet Explorer.

I do not like Firefox, however do like Chrome. I just checked and Chrome has finally made autocomplete work in Yahoo mail. I have not made Chrome my default browser and see if it works.

I did learn this, if I closed Explorer, then reopened it stopped for awhile... maybe.

My tech say Ajax a type of code that is the same as Gmail.com. So they in a way copied Gmail badly. I on the other hand do not not use gmail because it will not load in slow Internet countries.

Solution

Close all the windows and clean cache with disk cleanup.

This is not a solution, but it may allow you to send when the Internet in your home or Internet cafe is slow bandwidth.
