Yahoo webmail access problem

  Durko 11:38 27 Aug 2008

Got a webmail account with and after entering username/password etc it just keeps blocking access with the message below:

Sorry, Forbidden.
You don't have permission to access this URL on this server

Is the message possibly recognition that they're doing some maintenance work or perhaps some Computer Evil preying on Yahoo emails?

Any thoughts much appreciated

“You don't have permission to access this URL on this server”

Check that you are using the correct user name and password

If using any firewall software disable and retry

Zone Alarm, Sygate, Kerio, Norton Internet Security, Zero Knowledge Freedom, Cisco VPN Client, F-Secure, McAfee Firewall, Trend Micro, Comodo, PC Tools Firewall Plus

Check the firewall setting on the router

On 3M routers you can change the firewall setting From High, Medium, Low, set to Medium will

allow 99% of web site to be accessed

I had the same problem using a bookmark which always worked before. Going back to the bookmark allowed me to logon, but next time the same problem. Logging on direct to the yahoo home page and then logging in to my email and then creating a new bookmark solved the problem.
