Having trouble with Yahoo email.  Will read a few emails and then the infamous spinning colored wheel appears and takes forever.  Have to shut down and go through the whole cycle again.  Please help.

Sorry first post in this forum.   I can log on to Yahoo email, read a few emails and then the infamous multi-colored spinning wheel appears and I end up having to shut down and cycle back in again.  I have a 2011 MacBookPro 17 not quite a year and it just started acting up this way.  Any suggestions.  Thanx.

here are some ways to troubleshoot the spinning beach ball: http://www.macworld.com/article/151583/2010/05/spinningbeachballofdeath.html  Hope you find this useful.

  • Still having trouble with yahoo email account

    Getting user name or password incorrect message. I recently traded in my phone for a mew one, both 2nd generation. I tried reseting the password, to no avail. Posts on this topic haven't helped.
    Thanks

    One thing that might help.
    Try setting up using other instead of yahoo.
    Make sure your on edge or 3g and not wifi.
    Choose imap as account type when prompted.
    incoming mail server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Enter username and password
    Outgoing mail server: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Enter username and password
    Answer no to try w/ out SSL message
    Now save again and save anyway.
    Now go into the account advanced settings and turn ssl off.
    Hope this helps.

  • Having trouble with my  email from google

    Having trouble with my email from gmail, both on my iPhone and on my iMac. It keeps asking to validate my password and e en after that it won't work. Does anyone know what to do?

    Hey Florian Fangohr,
    Thanks for the question. I understand you are experiencing issues with Mail in OS X Mavericks. Base on the symptoms you provided, the following article may help to resolve your issue:
    Mail (Mountain Lion): If your password is not saved
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH11775
    If you click “Save password” in a dialog in Mail but still have to enter your password, there are a couple of things you can try.
    - Open Keychain Access, and then locate and delete the mail account password item.
    While in Keychain Access, you can also choose Keychain Access > Keychain First Aid to verify and repair keychain settings.
    - Open Disk Utility, and then select the volume (for your hard disk or disks) in the list of disks and volumes. Click First Aid and then click Verify Disk. If necessary, click Repair Disk. Then send yourself a test message.
    Note: The same steps apply for OS X Mavericks
    Thanks,
    Matt M.

  • I am having trouble with songs that will not play completely through.

    I am having trouble with songs that will not finish playback. The songs play about 75% of the way and then stop mid-song. This is true for my PC and songs transferred to my iPod. I have redownloaded (and repaid) for one song to see if that helps, which it did. But that can become expensive as I am starting to find an increasing amount of songs that are haaving this problem.

    Take it to a genius bar. It's probably something with the magnets.

  • Having trouble with Yahoo home page sign in. Some time it brings up my wife's Yahoo log in instead of my log in how can I fix this?

    When I open Firefox it is suppose to take me to my Yahoo home page. But it opens up showing my wifes Yahoo sigh in page in stead of mine. Having trouble with Yahoo home page sign in. Some time it brings up my wife's Yahoo log in instead of my log in how can I fix this?

    Did your wife tick the box on the Yahoo sign in page to remember her for two weeks?
    It would be best two have two separate Firefox profile folders, one for each of you to prevent such problems.<br />
    Then you also do not have problems with deleting or changing bookmarks.

  • HT4623 Is anybody having trouble with your ringer after installing OS 6.0 and using the new GPS system?

    Is anybody having trouble with your ringer after installing OS 6.0 and using the new GPS system?

    The good (?) news is many people are have OS 6.0.1 wifi problems.
    I could not connect to my home network.  What eventually worked for me (twice now), though it makes no sense, is to go to the particular connection you want to use, hit the little blue arrow on the right to get the details screen.  Scroll down to the bottom and change "HTTP Proxy" from "None" to "Auto".  Then leave the "URL" field that pops up blank. 
    This should not work.  However, it has for me where many other suggestions have not. 
    *shrug*
    Best of luck.

  • When I download the digital copy of the Hunger Games, it stops at 4.0GB and first returns an error code -1309 and then the code -50. Please help me complete the download.

    When I download the digital copy of the Hunger Games, it stops at 4.0GB and first returns an error code -1309 and then the code -50. Please help me complete the download. I have tried removing the .tmp folder and downloading it again, but each time it stops the download in the same place.

    I discovered the solution. The external drive I was saving it to was formatted as FAT32. In that format, the largest files can only be 4GB, which explains why it kept stopping at 4GB. I backed up all the files then reformatted it as Mac OS Extended (Journaled), this is possible since I am on an iMac.

  • Is anyone having trouble with iCloud email?

    I am using iCloud for all of my mail.  I use it on iCloud.com and also with iMail.  I use it for my iPhone, iMac and MacBook Pro.  For the past three days I have been having a terrible time receiving email from my personal friends.  I can get email from commercial entities like DirectTV, Facebook, ASPCA, etc. but nothing when my friends try to email me.  I have spent several hours on the phone with Apple advanced tech support but it's still not working and I am supposed to call them back today.  After changing many settings, the tech told me it might be a corrupt email address and we would completely remove my email address from my computer and type it in fresh which we did.  I then was able to send myself a test email and I did receive that.  I am still able to send and receive to myself.  I then went to my neighbor and did the same thing on his computer with my email address, removed it completely and then put it in anew.  Then I sent myself an email from his computer but it didn't work.  I haven't received the email.  I have asked several people to email me today.  I did not receive any of their emails but am still receiving emails from other entities.  A friend of mine said they are having trouble with iCloud but when I asked the tech, he said he wasn't aware of it.  So, I have no idea if it's something on my computer or if there is a problem with iCloud.  Can anyone help me out?  It's so discouraging.  Thanks much.
    By the way, this problem exists on all my products -- iPhone, MacBook Pro as well as my iMac

    I'm having the same problem, except I'm not receiving ANY email (not even from businesses etc).  This has been going on for a week now.  I had not upgraded my OS, so that cannot be the cause.  It was just suddenly not receiving emails.  I can send, but cannot receive.  I can log in to icloud.com but when I select MAIL, it will not load, and says application not availble.  Today, I opened Mail Preferences and added a email account using my same email address ([email protected]) and it worked fine, gathered all my missing emails.  But it was using the name iCloud instead of my name, and created a new mailbox for all the mail.  I want to use my mailbox I've used for years...so I deleted it.  It was just a test, but don't really know what was accomplished because my original email still does not receive mail. 
    Last week I had sent a msg to Apple Support about the problem, and got a reply...so I think they know there is a problem.  Perhaps they just don't know what the solution is so will not acknowledge the issue yet. 
    I'm still waiting for a solution, too.  Extremely inconvenient, most of us rely heavily on email.
