XP
Explorer will go to the Yahoo home page but will not allow me to view my mail.
I get "explorer cannot display webpage" error.

I get the same message for Hotmail.

In this case:
1.) What is the latest service pack installed for Windows XP?
2.) What version of Internet Explorer are you using?
3.) Are any other webpages producing this error?
4.) Does the error persist if you use an alternative browser, such as Firefox?

Let us know.
