Adding a Yahoo! mail account to Thunderbird

Q: Adding a Yahoo! mail account to Thunderbird

Hi, i'm trying to add my yahoo! mail account to thunderbird but not sure if i can... i read somewhere that you can only do it if you pay for the advanced version of yahoo mail, but then i ran across this site... http://webmail.mozdev.org/index.html

...only when i try to download the extension it automatically tries to install it into firefox, which of course does not work. Any ideas??

Preferred Solution: Adding a Yahoo! mail account to Thunderbird

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, thanks for taking the time to view this post, i just hope someone can help.

I have recently had to reinstall my Op system (WinXP) and i have now noticed that i cant send emails via Thunderbird , but i can still receive

I think i have setup Thunderbird correctly, i followed the instructions found on the Yahoo, Options, Pop3 Forwarding config webpage. Whenever i try to send a email i get the following error message from Thunderbird

Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent because connecting to the SMTP server smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMTP server setting is correct and try again.

It looks like to me that the SMTP setting is incorrect but i've triple checked it. A friend of mine is also having the same problem on the same setup as me so it leads me to believe that its something to so with yahoo.co.uk mail accounts.

Any advice will be much appreciated - please let me know if you need any other details.

A:Solved: Thunderbird won't receive emails from my Yahoo mail account

Read other 6 answers

The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open. Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to Mozilla's Thunderbird v 24.0.1 on my Win7-64 desktop and my wife's Win7-64 laptop. She uses the paid version of Yahoo and I'm on the free version.

Once I get Thunderbird going, does anyone know how I can:
get mail addressed to me at Yahoo forwarded to me in Thunderbird?
import my Yahoo contacts into Thunderbird?
import my Yahoo folders and their contacts into Thunderbird?
I'm not a techie, so I'd greatly appreciate learning how I can go about this. Thanks in advance.

Ok this is really making me ill... I've tried everything I know to do.

Short version: I'm adding an email account to Thunderbird. (I already have 3 addresses set up with no issues-- and yes, I need them all for work).

The new account is giving me fits. It's imap, and the incoming server name (according to my contact at xxxx.org) should be email.xxxx.org. So I set it up, and when I try to log in it tries to connect me at [email protected] instead of [email protected].

Any ideas? Is this enough info?

You need to pay Yahoo for POP access to your account before you can access it that way. Then, you need to set up the accounts servers. Only Asian users get free POP access.

Hi all,

I use Mozilla Thunderbird to operate my Yahoo mail. It worked all day until about 30 minutes ago. I get an error message - pls see attached. Why did it happen - I have not touched a single thing in outbound settings.

Does anybody also has this problem today??? Seems like it is Tnunderbird's problem because I am able to send out mail from original Yahoo (without TB).

Can I get some help on TB please??? What should I do to solve this problem??
P.S. Yahoo mail is a sub-account of att.net. My 'main' ATT mail has no problem sending out.
Many thanks in advance for any help!
P.S, My Thunderbird is updated. It's 38.2 version.

I know that Yahoo has been experiencing some problems lately, but I thought they pretty much had everything fixed. My problem is I can't send e-mail from my Yahoo account using Thunderbird. I can receive mail from that account fine, and can receive and send mail from my other e-mail accounts just fine, I just cant send it from Yahoo. When I try to send, I get a "connection to smtp timed out." I've checked all the settings for outgoing mail, and everything seems fine. I even tried switching the port from 465 to 587, but still does not work. Yahoo is pretty hard to get a hold of to figure out what's going on, so I thought I'd try here.

I have a client I'm trying to help with an e-mail issue. I was handling this remotely and can't give you much info about the system beyond the fact that he is running Windows 7. 
He has Outlook 2007 on the system and was previously popping his Gmail into Outlook and everything was working fine. Then he bought a tablet and set his e-mail up on the tablet and says that the next time he tried to get to his e-mail on his computer it didn't work. 
I first tried to set up a new account in Outlook using IMAP. I followed Gmails guidelines and triple checked the settings so I know they are correct. It still wouldn't work and just rendered a generic error saying the servers couldn't be contacted. 
The client then agreed to try Thunderbird. I attempted to set up the account in Thunderbird but it said the password was not valid. I then re-checked his e-mail address and had him enter his password again. Still didn't work. 
Out of curiosity I then entered the information one of my own Gmail accounts and again it said the password was incorrect. I then entered the information for one of my Yahoo accounts, and again it said the information was incorrect. 
At this point, I am at a loss as to where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Ray,

Mail App - Add an Account in Windows 8.1

Read other 1 answers

I am trying to add several email accounts to 'Mail' in Windows 8.
So far I have successfully added Hotmail, and BT mail. I am now trying to add my 2 Virginmedia NTL accounts using the imap settings shown on the Virginmedia support site but neither of them install correctly...though they do work. The problem is the Folders list on the left hand side shows only Inbox, Flagged, Outbox and then for some very strange reason it lists (Gmail) Folders...see attachment Ntl account.doc.
I have tried deleting these folders but they come back after a few seconds.
I have also noticed that 'Mail' must keep details of additional accounts hidden away somewhere as whichever NTL account I create it always uses the first account name I ever entered...'Ntlworld' which was a typo...and all subsequent attempts to create this account have been spelt correctly.

Does anyone have an explanation for this strange behaviour.



A:Problem adding new account to 'Mail' in Windows 8

Outlook.com is very funky with regular email accounts. If you are totally frustrated you could install windows live mail and see if that works better. You need to pick up Windows live essentials and do it as a custom install and just check off Windows Live Mail

I have two outlook/Hotmail accounts. One I log into the PC with (which is pretty crappy by the way and is a huge hassle in Windows 10 IMO).
In the mail app, I was able to add the mailbox of the one I use, however I have a second email account through Hotmail that when I try to add the account to the mail app, it asks me to verify with a pin. I have never used a PIN with this account. I went to settings and sign in option, and have an option to change the pin, however it is wanting to change the main account that I log into the pc. The pin appears to be 4 digits (it only allows 4 characters before it auto enters) unlike the main pin which is 8 or 9 numbers.

Thanks in advance,

A:Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app

Hi Bryan, welcome to the Ten Forums.
The PIN the Mail app asks for the verification when a new / another Microsoft email account (Outlook, Hotmail, Live, MSN) is added is the PIN for the Microsoft Account you use to sign in to Windows.

An example: Let's say your Windows 10 sign-in MS account is [email protected], and when signed in using that MS account you want to add your second Microsoft email address [email protected] to the mail app. You enter the credentials for the [email protected], and when done, the Mail app wants to check you are really the user [email protected], the user currently signed in to Windows. To verify this you need to enter the PIN of the current Windows sign-in account, the one of [email protected]

I've only seen this to happen when adding any of the Microsoft's email accounts to the mail app. Adding for instance a Gmail account does not ask it.

Confusing, I have difficulties to understand myself what I just wrote! I hope you get it, though.

Hello everyone,
I am trying to save my email messages from Outlook to the Mail program on my Mac Lion (OS X El Capitain). The problem is it won't let me use the POP protocole, only IMAP works. And I really need to use POP because I want to download my messages onto my computer instead of just viewing them from the server.

Strangely, when I try to add an account, it does it automatically in IMAP without letting me choose. But if I don't write the right info, it doesn't connect and on the next window then it lets me choose. So then I add all the info.
Incoming mail server: pop-mail.outlook.com
Outgoing mail server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
Password: I'm using the 2 step verification so I'm using an application password
And I do have POP protocole activated in Outlook...

Still it won't let me add the account. Il gives the error message: Impossible to verify the name or password of the account. If I try a couple more times, it finally manages to create the new account however all the info is missing about the servers and the ports. So I add the missing info manually and yet it still doesn't work.

Thank you for your help.

I suppose that's a limitation of the Mac email program. Try Thunderbird. On both Windows systems and Linux distributions I've saved IMAP messages to my computers. Never used a Mac, but I suspect that Thunderbird works equally well on it.

Hi --
My yahoo mail seems to have been hijacked -- there are 61 sent emails in my sent mail folder that I didn't send, all were sent at 2:08 or 2:09 pm, and I think it blasted an email out to all my contacts. The only reason I noticed it is because I got a bunch or responses (mailer daemon failures, out of office, plus a handful of my contacts asking whether I'd actually sent this out).

My question: how do I figure out whether one of the PCs in our home that I use to access this email account is infected, whether somebody else's PC is infected, or whether Yahoo's servers were compromised somehow?

This PC seems to be acting OK -- it's Vista Home Premium with Windows Defender and Symantec Anti Virus (version 10 something) running. I read something online about using Hijack This and posting the log file somewhere, but am not sure whether that's the best next step.

Good afternoon everyone:
Yesterday morning, I went to check my yahoo email account.
In the spam folder I noticed a email to me from one of my other Yahoo accounts that I use when I sign up to online forums.
I obviously didn't send it to myself, so did some investigating.
I don't have any contacts in that account, and it looks like the spam email was sent to the two addresses I had in the sent folder, although the spam email itself was NOT in the sent folder. Nothing in the account settings appears to have been changed.
I logged into that Yahoo account. When I checked in the account information section, it showed someone had accessed my email at 4:14 am from Thailand via Yahoo Mobile.
I don not use Yahoo mobile, and in fact own no mobile devises capable of using the internet. I went to another computer in the house and immediately changed the password for that Yahoo account.
So, the question i have is, does my system have an infection, or is it an issue on Yahoo's end?
I have run full scans of my system using Norton Internet Security 2012 (up to date), Malwarebytes and SUPERantispyware. All came back 100% clean. Could there be something on my system these programs aren't picking up? Should I try running them with windows in safe mode?

A:Yahoo Mail Spam Using My Account

Read other 7 answers

I have a new W8 tablet. I want to set up a local account and add my yahoo email account to it. I don't want to have to sign in to a microsoft account to access my yahoo email. However, when I try to enter the mail app signed in via my local account, it always insists on my switching to a microsoft account. Is there a way around this?


A:Use Yahoo mail app with local account

No. In order to use any Windows Store App, a Microsoft account is required. Since you have Tablet, I assume you don't have the desktop thing.

I don't know why you want to avoid MS Account thing. If it is about privacy then use one but don't store any email on Outlook.com or files on Onedrive. This is one way to use apps. Also by the way Yahoo Mail App on Windows Store is was removed by Yahoo. So I guess you can use the Windows Mail App for Yahoo.

I do seem to have strange problems. Here's the story:
I have WLM & WM on my Vista pc. On my account it all works lovely with hardly any problems in one applicaton; open up WLM and my WM ([email protected]) is available also.

On the different user account, that is another story.
I can open up WLM or WM in seperate applications; open up WLM, close WLM, open up WM, close WM.
But WLM will not incorporate the WM account.
I tried ADD ANOTHER ACCOUNT but though it starts off well it does not go past the password point and either keeps flashing the password login box at me for ever or it says the email account name and or password is wrong.
Now here is the strange bit - on my other pc all is well with this WLM, it rocognises the user name and password of WLM and desk top application mail ([email protected]).

So do I give the different user Admin rights,will that make any difference? Or what?

The only antecedent action that I can recall before the above problem surfaced was the installation of IE 7.0.

Could this be the cause of the problem?

If so.....could I uninstall IE 7.0 and reinstall IE 6.0?

I have very limited technical knowledge about computers....

Install FireFox and see if you can get to your mail with that broswer.

Ok, we've sailed these waters before, and I lost the thread. I tried opening my att.net email account, and it won't open. Did a reset do my IE default settings, ran SWB and MWB. MWB found 123 harmful items, which I quarantined and removed. Rebooted a couple of times and everything is great, except the email account won't open when I click on it. Any help? This time I'm saving the thread, lol.

How are you accessing your email account.. is it through the web or a mail client?
