Try this advice of yahoo: http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?locale=en_US&page=content&y=PROD_MAIL_ML&id=SLN3569&impressions=false

Cannot reply to, forward, or send emails


The inability to send, reply, or forward emails can be caused by a program on your computer that prevents the Yahoo! Mail Rich Text toolbar from launching properly. As a workaround, try switching to plain text mode when you send an email.

To switch to plain text mode:

Sign in to Yahoo! Mail. Click the Compose button to start a new email. Click the double arrow button (<<) at the right side of the formatting toolbar (just below the email's subject line). This switches you to plain text mode. Compose and send your email.

I was having this issue with the yahoo mail in chrome.

After a little trial and error I find this is the format works:


I added a custom URL using the chrome "Mailto: 1.26.0" extension. Works great now! When I click on an email link it opens a yahoo mail and the to field is populated correctly.

Hope this helps other people who were struggling with this.

It may be the internet browser, you are using. I had this problem until I downloaded Google Chrome, once I downloaded Google Chrome I was back in business.

Please don't use excess punctuation. Someone else has to take the time to clean it up. – jonsca Apr 9 '14 at 2:07
