  1. I installed service pack3 for xp, now yahoo mail is not working anymore, anyone the same problem? Before i complain with yahoo i better be sure.

    Might it be a feature by design? So i better get a hotmail account?

    I now use firefox to go to yahoo mail, and it works fine, but if other people have the same problem, someone probably better ask yahoo to fix this.

    IE7 is just configured standard way, no adsense block by firewall, browser extensions disabled.

    Anyone? Same problem? Please put a reply, i will get a notification by mail.

    I am having the same issue. I can see the sender and subject line on the preview on the yahoo home page, but when i click on the link , IE responds with cannot find page.

    I can access the mail through the mobile site but lose functionality that way.

    Any ideas gratefully recieved.

    The most obvious fix is to remove SP3. Go to the Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs> highlight and uninstall SP3 (KB936929)

    If you got SP1, SP2 and the updates since, you don't need SP3.
