For my sins I use BT Yahoo Mail and over the past week or so, after accessing my e-mails and leaving them showing on the screen, I am continually being requested to re-enter my user name and password and on many occasions, despite entering those same details it will not allow me back in until I have tried several times.
The dialogue box asking to "keep me logged in" (or similar) does not always appear, and even if it does, it makes no difference.
I used to leave my Yahoo mail page open during the day without a problem and boot up the following morning and go straight into Yahoo Mail without any request for User details.
Yes I know that and have BT.com as my home page and accessed my e-mail via the route as displayed without a problem until the past week or so.
When I do arrive at my e-mail page and LEAVE it displayed and then return later in the day - I am requested to input my details over again and it does not always accept my input until I have tried two or three times inputting exactly the same details.
Thanks for that link, do not know how I missed that. It would seem that perhaps there is a link with BT Desktop Help and IE11 perhaps causing the problem. I have both installed, BUT BT Desktop Help is telling me that my version of Internet Explorer is not compatible(!!!) and that I need IE6 or above????.
Further to my problems with e-mail logon I found that BT Desktop Help on my laptop does not function at all!!"
Then I found this:-
"If you already have BT Desktop Help installed or if you've recently installed it and you have Windows 8.1 or Internet Explorer 11, you don't need to un-install it. We'll be providing an upgrade to correct these compatibility issues. "
So it might very well be a compatibility problem causing the e-mail scenario.
