To my own understanding Lucy, I think it could be from your ISP; may be the speed is not adequate or maybe they’re blocking certain links. What kind of email application do you use and what is your ISP?

ISP means Internet Service Provider. That's the company that is giving you access to the Internet.

If you’re using GLO and Firefox, I don't see the reason why you could not open links. I think if your PC is in a good working condition another thing that can cause that is a broken link.

Lucy guess you mean emails in your spam box? (not scam box, am I right? As in junk mail)

You should be very careful of the links that you click in messages especially if they are in your spam folder. Many of those links are viruses and unless you give us some examples it may be difficult to know why they are not opening. It could be that they are being blocked by your ISP or browser (because they are bad links) or maybe they are designed to take you to a blank page that installs a virus on your system (hope not).

Anyhow I hope they are not really bad links sha (By the way, do you have a good antivirus on your system? If not then you should install one.)

For us to better figure out what might be the issue, please copy and paste in your reply at least two of the messages including the links that refuse to open (if they are not confidential or personal messages). Also if there is a message in your inbox (not spam) that gives the same issue, post it here too (and indicate that its from your inbox)

Also, do you experience this same issue with the links in our own messages to you?

Thanks to you guys. yes spam box i have AVG antivirus. I'm sorry i use to delete it immediately. i will copy and paste it here like you said when i receive such again. It's not that they don't open, they  normally open to a blank page and there's no link to unsubscribe. I even sometimes reply them to stop sending yet they keep sending. How can i stop it? Thanks.

Lucy, my candid advice to you is to always delete any message you don't know the source, that is, mails sent to you without your consent. Just as Tony rightly said, your ISP or Internet browser might be trying to secure your system from attacks from those malicious scripts because most of them tend to activate themselves once you ignorantly open them.

Another thing I discovered about spam mails is that sometimes the program they normally use will try and manufacture certain email addresses and once you click on it they will know that the email really belonged to someone and they will continue to bombard you with those unsolicited mails from time to time.

Lucy don't worry about posting them here, I think I have an idea of what the messages might be. In fact don't even open any such message in the future. As long as they go to your spam don't bother about them because they will always keep coming nonstop. The spam gets automatically deleted every month or so by yahoo so no need to even delete them manually. Most times I don't even look at my spam unless I'm expecting an email that has not yet come. Generally I just ignore my spam and thats what I suggest that you do.

As winnet observed in another thread, when you reply to some of these messages, it might trigger a kind of program that steals all your sensitive data and sends it back to the senders so you really need to ignore those messages. Don't open it if you don't know the sender.

If you are expecting or receiving important messages from a particular email and it always ends up in your spam, you can add that email address to your email contact list so that the message will not be delivered to your spam. That way you can be sure that your most important messages always go to your inbox hence no need for you to bother looking into your spam.

And for antivirus, I suggest that you use Avast antivirus (also free). Uninstall the AVG that you have, install Avast free, let it update and then scan your computer. Avast is better than AVG. You can get the free Avast here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login   There are three versions, download the first one, thats the free one.
