Hello everyone,

 

I do not know what to name the topic, But I am having Massive Problems with Yahoo.com causing all of my Web-browsers to Freeze and to Crash and my computer to freeze whenever I enter any of Yahoo.com's websites or when I click to read a "News article".  Also when ever I try to enter my one Email account the same damn thing happens!! And today December 18, 2014 I could not even enter my one email account no matter what web browser I used!!!!! But My other Yahoo email account worked just fine, no problems!!!  I tried to find a contact phone number, email, or something so I could contact Yahoo about my problem, But yahoo does not list any of that information!!! At one time they used to!! Now all they list is "Self help" information and a link to a "Community" Board for help!!  I need Help NOW, Not 3 days from NOW!!!!!!

 

Now my question is: is there a program that I can use that will transfer or notify all of the companies, websites, etc.in my Contacts list if I delete that one email account and automatically switch them to another of my email accounts? Or Will I have to do that Manually?

You can export your contacts from yahoo into a CSV format and import it into many other e-mail providers or even another yahoo account. You can also setup your current account as a forwarder to a new e-mail so you don't miss any e-mails in the other account. But as far as notifying everyone, I would create a contact group that includes all your contacts and just send one mass e-mail (and possibly a followup e-mail a few days later just in case).

All of that sounds a bit too complicated to me! :hysterical:   So it looks like I will be better off just manually changing/switching my email notification with all of my contacts! Some contacts are newsletters, websites I get notifications from; like this site, friends, family, some I jws looking for information of some sort at one point, etc.. So I will have to either go back through my emails and check to see if I can change notifications/change email account or just unsubscribe or even some I already have unsubscribed from and delete them from my contacts list. Will take a little longer but probably better off.  Thanks for the reply!
