What browser are you using? version?
windows internet explorer
I don't know which version you have, but in IE 6, go to Tools>Internet Options>Privacy, click the Sites button and add Yahoo to allow.
did that but still know joy..
internet explorer provided by dell..
if thats any help.. dont know if thats relevant or not
damn thing is doing my head in
These things can be a pain.
When you go to the mail login page, is there a red circle with a white line across the middle on the bottom gray line?
Double-clicking on that should show Restricted Sites. Right-click on any one of those that shows Yahoo and select Always Accept Cookies from this site.

You can see your version of IE at Help>About Internet Explorer at the top of any open web page.
