Just went to send an email and had to put in a code. Supposedly to help stop spam. Just like the codes for Ticketmaster. What a bunch of shit. Can't they just check someone email account and see them sending millions out. Leave everyone elses life, Code free.

Is the world getting too top secret for its own good. :hmmm:

You had to enter a code to send an email? What service are you using?

I could answer that question, but then I'd have to kill you.

Yahoo

I use yahoo all the time and have never needed to enter a code.

Me either until tonight. Just tried it again-same thing. Could be my friends service-Comcast-weird stuff. Pain in the ass, if it is not temporary.

Hmm, I just sent an email on my account and it didn't require a code at all. Are you an SBC Yahoo member or just a Yahoo mail member? I wonder if that has something to do with it. Were you sending an attachment?

Actually all ISP's should be that way to accept incoming emails. Nothing worse than spam.

Hey, were you responding to an email when this happened. My co-worker just told me that what you have described is a common virus for stealing an email account.

SBC Yahoo. Yes there was an attachment. I was replying to an old one. It had a pic of a hot Blonde. Said Happy 2006. She is topless and the 00 are her love pillows.

Maybe if you send emails with titty pics-you need code verification?

For me it was just sending an email not responding

That could be a possibility. I will test mine out.

I just sent an email attachment on my account without a problem at all.

Don't know why it is giving you the 3rd degree. Seems strange to me though. :hmmm:
