Pop up names

Last response: in Windows 7

When I am in my inbox, names keep popping up on the tabs above and I have to click the X to get rid of them. Sometimes I do click the name and they want to add me to windows live messenger which I don't even have, so I can't remove it. Any ideas? I do keep blocking their names. But the names are all different. I get about 10 a day when I am emailing. Thanks.

sounds like your email address is being spammed. you could change to a new email address.

I can't easily change to a new address, and I think it has somethng to do with yahoo messenger or facebook

What program are you using for email? What "names" are you talking about? Are these requests to add things to your contacts?

I am using yahoo. the names pop up at the top, if I click on them it will open up a window asking me if I would like to start a conversation with them. I keep delicing, but then a different person's name will pop up.

Is this instant messaging windows? Sounds like someone is just sending you requests, see if you can block them in the options. You should be able to add the addresses to a blocked list. You can try Yahoo support as well, they will be able to look at this a lot better than we can.

Yahoo is worthless. I cannot block them because they don't give their full .com address, otherwise I could. The people are just sending requests, nothing wrong, just very annoying when it happens constantly.
