Customer Question
My email account is...

My email account is frozen. How can i fix this

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what email service provider are you using for this account?

Yahoo

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

Not sure how to answer. updates have occurred because my home page is different. I think I have too many e-mails

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

I received the "warning", but I have been unable to get many deleted because somehow the email became "starred items". I can delete regular mail but not the starred items

I do not want ongoing tech support. I just want to unfreeze my yahoo mail. somehow instead of Yahoo I have this site.

I very much understand. We can just fix this one issue for you. Do you wish to continue?

do you represent yahoo? is there a way to have yahoo do this since they froze it? too many e-mail
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
i did not receive an answer
Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

We are not Yahoo. We do support Yahoo and can help with any issue related to Yahoo. Yahoo has no connection to the problem of your computer freezing. I have millions of emails in my Yahoo account and it doesn't freeze. It is a matter of configuring the e-mail application correctly.

Sorry for all the questions. I am trying to understand.. the computer is not frozen... just the email account.
Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

Thank you for the update. I have been working with email systems for almost 20 years. I understand what you are saying. May I quickly remotely connect to your system and fix the issue that you are having, which is the connection between your computer and your Yahoo account?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
if the account is deactivated and you are not yahoo... how does this work that you can reactivate and you are not yahoo. trying to understand why this is not being done with the actual business that did it. thank you for your patience. and I am a little afraid to have you remotely in the computer for reasons of fraud

if i get this one issue resolved, I can cancel and just pay 5$?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
i did not receive a response
Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

You can always cancel your account at any time. The $5 was a deposit. The full cost of this question was $47 with the $5 included.

I understand your anxiety regarding allowing someone to remotely connect. I have remotely connected into computers, scores of thousands of times with no problems.

Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

Is it deactivated or is it frozen? What do you mean when you say that it is "frozen" or "deactivated"?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
My account is Deactivated. That is the word yahoo used... all other areas work well on the computer... frozen was my word ... sorry for confusion... that's why I think I need yahoo for this
Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

What is telling you that it is "Deactivated"?

An email sent on Saturday

To which email account was this email sent?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
My email address
Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

Was it sent to the Yahoo account in question?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Yahoo sent this... yes. I have only one address... it is through att. Net.... ummmmm maybe I should try them
Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

So, Yahoo sent an email to your Yahoo email account telling you that it was deactivated? That is not really how it is done. You can just ignore that email message. Does your email account still function?

No

Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

That is not making sense to me. "Yahoo" sent an email to the Yahoo account, which worked, and stated that the email account being used and sent to was not active?

Yahoo sent it Saturday... today I cannot open email
Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

That emails sounds like it was a scam. Did you open the email, click a link in the email, enter your Yahoo password ***** the resulting page?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I did open. It did not ask for password
Tech Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Computer Expert replied 11 months ago

That may be the problem. When you attempt to sign in now, what happens?

Cancel what? You have not been charged for any remote service. You have been charged a total of $47 which is what this task costs.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
