It's driving me round the bend, sometimes I can't even compose a new message. My connection is not tremendously fast but even so it should be better than it is. Is it just me suffering? I have started a gmail account instead.....

Mine is OK today but i have had the probs. you've described on other occasions. Think their servers get screwed up sometimes.

the all new isn't that great.

it won't let me send mai. for example I want to email someone who's email is in my contacts, it tells me their email is wrong!!

Yes I use the all new version, but perhaps I should change back, anyhow I shall try gmail for a while, everyone raves about it!

There is always a problem with Yahoo mail, gmail much more reliable.

i cant read my mail messages on my computer.

Interestingly, I have discovered that I can forward both yahoo and gmail messages to my outlook express and then compose offline. This has saved me hours of waiting for the page to download properly! I'm sure most people know you can do this, I think I must be a bit behind the times. blush

I have tried to set up a sub account for dh with yahoo and whilst it goes through the motions and lets you select an email address etc. It just doesn't work.

How do you set up a gmail account - is it free?
