Received: Friday, November 9, 2012, 12:21 AMHowdy from East Texas!
I've been using Yahoo thru ATT (SWB) dial-up since 1995. Had an early problem
with spammers getting into my contacts so I kept that empty to thwart that
hassle. This spring some spammer from Linkedin began using my addy to send spam
to other Linkedin clients with links to sites on Linkedin. I discovered it after
checking my spam mailbox to see why it accumulated so much in a short period of
time. Just saw alot of out of office notices, etc and no warnings nor
complaints. I did notify Linkedin and lodged a complaint. After that I lost the
ability to send and recieve emails from personal contacts. Checked out Yahoo!
mail help and it seemed that they labeled me as a spammer. Tried following their
instructions to correct that by changing the inbound and outbound settings yet
never could find the box to do that. (I did for Windows Live but it won't work
either) I plodded thru yahoo's instructions several times and when the sequence
came to the mythical settings it sent me back to the beginning!
I tried calling Yahoo! customer service several times only to be placed on hold
forever and a day, so I emailed them about the problem. Got a nice reply a few
days later saying I was a valued customer and they were looking into it. Guess
they did something because shortly later I could send emails to two other Yahoo!
groups I belong to when earlier I couldn't, tho many still don't get sent and
oddly wind up in the saved draft box. Informed Yahoo! about that curiousity and
have yet to hear back from them. Guess they're scratching their heads over that
If you have any suggestions over what's going on and how to correct this mess
I'll be very appreciative.
I'm using a new HP Pavilion p6 w/Win 7. It had nearly all the updates and
service packs downloaded before the problem started. I downloaded the free
CCCleaner when I first hooked it up since it worked fine on my ancient HP
Pavilion. I use it to clear out garbage before shutting down and to check the
registry for problems. It found a few of the typical stuff that wasn't email
