I need some help. My wife uses Yahoo for her email, but for the last couple of days it has not been allowing her to open her messages. It says cannot load.

I was wondering is there a way to transfer her Yahoo contacts to AOL (that's what she would like to use) and if I am able to transfer will her email messages she has in her Yahoo inbox go with the transfer? Thank you!

How is she reading her Yahoo mail?  I just tested my account with Yahoo using the web interface and it's having no issues at all.  If she's using an e-mail client it could be a problem with the e-mail client itself.

 

It is a simple matter in the Yahoo Classic Webmail interface to go to Contacts, select all, then use the Export feature to get them all in a file that can be imported elsewhere.

She goes to Google via Google Chrome to Yahoo Mail. So I will Select all Contacts and Export, will this also carry over all email messages?

this is nothing to do with Yahoo, unable to load Yahoo Mail means that your browser is having some issues This is the Google Chrome is unable to load your Yahoo Mail either you need to open the email in in cognitive mode using Google Chrome or try a different browser or you need to delete the cache cookies or reset your Google Chrome browser this is not a big problem it is just a very simple  problem that can be fixed by yourself also

This is good to hear. I did try a different Browser and I did try cleaning the browsing history along with cache. I just did a clear of everything with a reboot and the mail is now working.

I appreciate all the help so much. She would still like to change because shes had issues with Yahoo in the past. We'll see what happens.

Thanks again, have a great weekend.

The fact that Yahoo supports only POP3 access [or did the last time I checked, anyway] is reason enough to stop using it if you need to access your mail from multiple devices and are not using the web interface on all of them.

That is a surprising statement.  ymail  (part of Yahoo) seems to still work through Thunderbird, although the account I have I have not received messages nor sent any for several months; as it is an account I have which I keep but did not any longer use.  My ymail account is on Thunderbird as IMAP.
