I didn't get any new emails today. That's most unusual. I use W7.

There were 4 emails that I hadn't deleted, and those came through.

Anything else has been blocked.

I tried to forward an email from my Yahoo account to my POP3 account.

It didn't arrive.

Then I composed an email to my POP3 account from Yahoo mail.

It didn't arrive.

That means the connection is fine, but something is blocking ALL new mail that comes to that account.

The blockage is occurring before new email reaches my server. All my server can give me is what is already there.

What can I do?

Sorry if I picked the wrong forum, but where did you move it to? I can't find it, except here.

You had originally posted this very topic in the Windows 7 forum. I moved this topic to the forum that jburd1800 posted. Which you can see at the top of this page right above your topic title. That being Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications forum.

Now that my question is where it should be, have you any ideas that might help?

 

Today, when I rebooted, the problem was still there - no new emails. This is not good.

Have you updated your Yahoo password recently as Yahoo was forcing folks to (after notifying them years late about the security breaches)?  If so, have you updated it in your e-mail clients as well?

 

I absolutely despise POP access to e-mail because it can cause so many confusing results if you're accessing e-mail for the same account on multiple devices.  IMAP is a far superior choice when available.

Are you using Yahoo-Verizon or just Yahoo?

The OP didn't say if he was using more than one device.
