Why Can I Access Yahoo Mail From My iPod Touch, But NOT From My Computer?

November 22, 2010 11:12pm CST
For those who use iPod Touch, or iPhone, I use the e-mail feature to download my e-mail from Yahoo, but having the free account I can't use Pop Mail on the computer. Whenever I go to my Yahoo mail I get the following error message. Sorry, Unable to process request at this time -- error 999. Yahoo! Unfortunately we are unable to process your request at this time. This error is usually temporary. Please try again later. If you continue to experience this error, it may be caused by one of the following: * You may want to scan your system for spyware and viruses, as they may interfere with your ability to connect to Yahoo!. For detailed information on spyware and virus protection, please visit the Yahoo! Security Center. * This problem may be due to unusual network activity coming from your Internet Service Provider. We recommend that you report this problem to them. While this error is usually temporary, if it continues and the above solutions don't resolve your problem, please let us know. Return to Yahoo! Please try Yahoo! Help Central if you need more assistance. i have contacted Yahoo, and received no response. I can read my mail on my iPod, but not on my computer. It would be nice to be able to read it on my computer, because all of my MyLot mail goes to that account, and it's much easier to respond this way, than it is on the iPod. Anyone else having this problem?

hi danishcandien I have not had that particular problembutg once and it was incorrect user name. I stared at it and it looked like always thenI spotted it a period where one should not have been. one lousy period and I could not download or send out email either.One way to do would be to reset your computer to a day when you had no problem accessing your mail.this should take care of the problem
