Hello -

Apparently, you will need to revise the email you are trying to send.

From:
https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN5067.html

Error: 554 Message not allowed - [numeric code]

You'll receive an SMTP error or failed delivery message that includes "554 Message not allowed" when the content of a message you're trying to send violates Yahoo Mail policies. Content that violates policies includes; objectionable links, malicious attachments, or bad header information.

Review the Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Messenger Terms of Service to learn more about Yahoo policies that can effect your ability to send messages to Yahoo Mail accounts.
If you're the administrator for the mail server in question, review your outgoing messages for obectionable content or practices.
+++

How did I find this information? I used my favorite search engine, Google, and entered this search phrase, using quotation marks as shown:
"Yahoo mail" "Error 554"

How hard was that?

Best wishes.

If you have Yahoo! Mail Plus (a paid upgrade), you can access those messages directly from a standard email program (such as Outlook, Windows Live Mail, etc.). You need to configure the account settings in your email program for the Yahoo service.

The settings for incoming mail are:
Incoming (POP) server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
Port: 995
Security: SSL

For more on Yahoo server settings, see this Yahoo help page:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/mailplus/pop/pop-14.html

For details on configuring the WLM email program, see this Microsoft help page:

When you sign up for a free Yahoo! account, you gain access to the extensive features of the Yahoo! community and receive a free email account.

As with any account, it is a wise idea to change your Yahoo! password a few times a year in order to ensure its security.

Knowing where to go in Yahoo! to change your password will allow you to do it quickly.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account.

Click on your Yahoo! name at the top of the webpage to access drop-down options.
Select the "Profile" option.

Your account page will open.
Place your cursor over "Account Info" in the toolbar.
Options will again drop down.

Click "Change Password."

Type in your current Yahoo! email password in the first text box.
Enter your new Yahoo! password in the lower two text boxes.

Click "Save."

Your Yahoo! password is now changed.

I had this problem stopping me from logging in to my E-mail.
The "Sign In" button would not appear ans "read s.yim.com" would be in the the bottom left of the browser window. This only happens to me with Yahoo.
My Solution:
1. In your browser preferences / settings, turn off Javascript & Java
2. Refresh the page (the sign in button should now appear)
3. Fill out your sign in details
4. Turn on Javascript & Java
5. Click on Sign In

Of course this doen't solve why your browser is slow, but lets you sign in to your email account.

Ouch!
The error, LaunchFFC-1, occurred when trying to connect to Yahoo! Mail.

Yahoo Mail | Answered on Feb 13, 2019


I'VE GOT IT!

Whether you are using XP or Vista, go to System Restore, follow the instructions and you will be taken to a point in the past that you either a) didn't have a Messenger hang or b) before installed Messenger and then you can do it again.

It doesn't affect any documents.

I should have remembered this myself but one of the guys on a forum that I am a member of reminded me of this solution.

Go to it...it's cake.

Okay folks I've solved this one. The one with the gext content is undefined error. It is linked to your Compuer security program. I disabled my Norton and then clicked on my mail. Got in and changed from Beta back to Classic. This worked for me and I hope it will work for you.

Yahoo Mail | Answered on Feb 13, 2019


as far as wat i did to my YM.

i simply checked the connection preferences and turned

"Connect via a proxy server."

then select

"HTTP proxy"

after that take a look at your internet connection dropdown list..

some mistakes are seen here.. instead of having the "broadband" connection selected the "dial-up" connection was chosen by YM itself..

hope that helps ya ^^

There's nothing Yahoo can do with your credit card stolen details, contact your bank either immediately.
Keep contacting Yahoo customer support with your stolen email account. Sometimes they are too lazy and ignore some messages so flood them with frequently repeated message until they answer
