    About 3 months ago I started bouncing. It happens about every 3 weeks.
    Tried Yahoo help and can't find anything. Asked Yahoo several times
    but they haven't answered. How can I find out exactly what is causing
    the bouncing? I've used Google but haven't been able to find what I

    3 weeks?! You must be bouncing pretty high if it takes 3 weeks to come back
    They're probably still picking themselves up off the floor...

    Bouncing what kind of message, from what account to what kind of
    address? Are they messages you know you sent personally (or just
    notices of bounced messages)? Do you use Outlook or Outlook Express?
    Are there any explanatory messages? Error messages? Does anything
    change on your system at about that 3 week time? Have you ever written
    to either ISP about it?

    A message that says I'm bouncing.
    From Yahoo to my Yahoo email account.
    They are from Yahoo. Not emails.
    No. Neither one.
    Either? Yahoo won't answer and my ISP has no idea what they are
    talking about as it is an internal message from Yahoo to a Yahoo
    account holder.

    Hope that helps.

    Hey, if you didn't send any messages, then you have nothing to
    What you are seeing is probably just the automatic notice software they
    use at Yahoo, making general notices. They simply aren't investigating
    whether it really did come from your address.
    I suggest you do nothing unless Yahoo says something about disciplining
    you -- until you reply to that, they have no reason to take action or
    investigate, and there's no reason to ask them to.

    Nah. I go the the site to clear it and then I get the message again in
    about 3 weeks. No idea what the hell it is.

    They are messages from various Yahoo groups that are bouncing back.
    Once you begin bouncing all email stops so it can't be ignored unless
    you want to lose messages from the groups.
    If you don't know Yahoo then it's going to be hard to help.

    No, this is the first you said about Yahoo Groups being involved at all.

    I thought we were talking about e-mail messages to e-mail addresses.

    Yahoo groups send emails as messages. That's all I use that addy for.
    Nothing else. It wouldn't matter if it were emails from an individual
    or from a Yahoo would still bounce.
