Yahoo email extremely slow when replying!

June 1, 2017 at 03:51:10
Specs: Windows 10
My wife uses a Yahoo email account which takes forever to register keystrokes when trying to reply. I have a Hotmail account and a google account both of which are fine. We use the same computer but the problem of replying to emails is specific to her Yahoo account.

Even though you both use the same computer do you also use the same browser?

which browsers do you use?

I find yahoo increasingly irritating... as do many nowadays. I too have found on occasion that it is very slow in responding to key strokes and then for no apparent reason seems OK the next time I use it (email). Likewise with yahoo messenger...

A very long shot... clear all cookies, history and general temp files etc. - use either CCleaner (free version is fine) or the built-in disk clean utility in windowze.

It may help...?

Incidentally, I've had a similar experience with an Outlook.com account - but not with the olde (and in my view more user friendly and stable) Hotmail.com account. (Hotmail is of course is now tunnelled through Outlook.com.)

Or you could just dump Yahoo and use something better.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You mean leave Yahoo - after all these years... Wot about kustomer loyalty 'n all that stuph...?

Seriously though if one has innumerable contacts that use one's yahoo email to contact one.. then it becomes a true PIA to have to recall them all and advise of a new address? This especially if any of those address relate to software or other forms of registration and/or support etc.?

I can see the day when M$, Gmail and AOL (Verizon) etc. start to charge for all web mail accounts. BT do if once you had an email address with them (when they were your isp) and now no-longer use their isp services; but wish to retain whatever addresse(s) you had with them. I fear that free services on the ww are going to disappear anon...

.... Still have sprynet email address from Windows 95 days. Originally ISP was Gateway2000, then Gateway, eventually (through others) to Earthlink, then Earthlink through Time Warner Cable, now Earthlink through Spectrum. Who wants to change all of those contacts, some of which are defaults for lost password recovery. Inevitably one will be missed.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hi trvlr.
"Seriously though if one has innumerable contacts that use one's yahoo email to contact one.. then it becomes a true PIA to have to recall them al and advise of a new address?"
Why not test Gmail in a small way & see if it performs better, it did for me.
I have the Gmail web mail page open all the time & anything I don't want to download, I delete.
With Thunderbird, I use these Server settings & manually click > Get Messages to download the messages I want.

Once you have decided to change, get all your email address in a CSV file.
https://www.lifewire.com/export-yah...

I use this to extract the email links from the CSV.
Shark Email Extractor

Now to advise everyone of your new email address.

No matter how many address's you have, just listing in single file is Ok.

.........@............
.........@............
.........@............

Now you Copy & Paste ALL your address's into BCC & they go to your contacts in one action.

Hi Johnw.

tak for the suggestion. Will give it a go - at least the addresses utils. I've avoided gmail 'cos it allegedly scans (some might say "snoops") email content...; and also they store the lot regardless of one's settings...?

Or is that another urban myth?

Would the utils you link work with all email accounts; I get the impression they do? I have bt, and hotmail and outlook accounts.

Major issue though is that I run mostly Mac el capitan these days... But do have win-7 in a dual boot (bootcamp) environment (and that installation can accessed via parallels too).

I would think so.
