Turns out it was MTU that was my problem. Because I could access many other internet sites, but yahoo! mail would return a blank screen.
Setting the MTU on the ethernet interface on my PC fixed this problem. I had to set my MTU to 1490 bytes. Other people have to set it to 512. (Note this is an advanced task in windows, you have to google around for a while and try and work out what it is in the registry you need to change to force the MTU to be set to a lower value).
Seems yahoo! must just discard fragmented IP packets.

Although aware of the IE 6 for Windows option, It didnt work for me.
There is no point in downloading other browsers ( eg. Firefox) , since this just started a few days ago.
Anyways, I am not sure if it has something to do with IE settings or what?
Other people I spoke to about this, can simply use their Outlook to open yahoo, but I would like to open this through IE 6.0.
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
XP, IE 6, Yahoo
* Internet Explorer 6.x for Windows:
1. Choose "Internet Options..." from IE's Tools menu.
2. Click the "Delete Cookies" button, and choose "OK" when prompted.
3. Click the "Delete Files" button, and select to "Delete all offline
4. Click "OK" when prompted.
5. In the bottom right-hand corner of the Internet Options page,
click the "Clear History" button, and choose "OK" when prompted.
6. Click the OK button at the bottom of the Internet Options window.
7. Close and re-start your browser.

Yahoo mail should work after this.
Posted 20 April 2005 - 09:31 AM
Most of the postings listed were with XP or 98, some Linux and you with 2000.
I searched my self in IE 6.0 and this is what is offered, which sofar did NOT help me :mad:
IE 6.0 - XP
In Control Panel, open Internet Options.
On the Content tab, under Content Advisor, click Enable.
If you've already enabled Content Advisor, click Settings, and then type the supervisor password.
Click the Approved Sites tab, type the Internet address (URL) of a Web site, and then choose whether you want others to always or never have access to this site.
Repeat this process for each Web site that you want to set access for.
Hope this helps others........STILL waiting for anyone to help ME

I believe there is an email sent to Yahoo! to ask for help. (so did I, but no reply yet from Yahoo!)
Do we have to wait for Yahoo! or can we try something with ( Active X ) settings for the time being???
I noticed also that when loggin into Yahoo! and we get the ERROR PAGE or DONE, I see that the status bar disappears :mad:
I am really seeking URGENT help!!!!!!!
Any help is HIGHLY appreciated

Thanks for trying to help.
First of all, what * makes me explode* is that I did NOT change anything in IE nor in Yahoo! nor in XP. All of a sudden some websites are NOT loaded. At least not properly or not all the time.
All previous advice tells us to download different browsers, release block progs etc.
Maybe a total geek here, but in my opinion this is not the problem ( PLEASE CORRECT IF WRONG) and therefor not the solution to our Yahoo! *fight*
In other words, when my headlights are broken, I want to fix them and not buy another car
Having said this, I am looking for some expert or GTG staff or Bill Gates SOMEBODY, ANYBODY who is capable enough to help ALL of us with this so RECENT problem.
Again all USEABLE help is much appreciated.

Thanks for keeping me informed.

Have a good weekend for now,

Not sure if there is still someone looking at this post, however I still hope someone is willing to help us out there.
In the meantime I also tried contacting Yahoo! myself, through this email address
In their signature they provide Yahoo!'s website which offers some online help for the most basic mail questions, yet not for this
Is there anyone out there, who can help me/ us together?
Thanks a million, B
