Yahoo Mail

I have a backup email account through Yahoo.  I needed to use it, and discovered that mail in my inbox comes and goes.  There's always something there, but I can login and see some emails, which the next time I login are gone.  Sometime later they usually reappear.  Any thoughts on what could be causing this?  And what I can do about it?  I have a Windows 7 computer.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I've had clients mention they had email and interface related problems on the yahoo site before. Yahoo makes changes all the time and you are open to all the bugs and features that activity creates.  I'm not saying it is necessarily a bug, but ti could be.

When it happens, I'd verify you have enough network bandwidth to access the site properly and there isn't a plugin or advertisement waiting to load before it displays your email. All those companies sell advertising and it takes up your bandwidth when you access their site.

If you still have a problem, I'd clear cache, temporary internet files and browsing history on all your browsers and retest it.

Hope this helps!

Another thing to do is add a paid email account on a server that is maintained and has good support.  I know yahoo has support but it;s limited because it's a free service. When you pay for it, it becomes a different story and should be supported better.
