Getting cycle prohibited. Unable to access e-mail. "Proxy settings?

Posted

I am unable to access my Yahoo e-mail and am getting the following message: "Cycle Prohibited Description: Could not process your request for the document because it would cause an HTTP proxy cycle. Please check the URL and your browser's proxy settings."

Thank you,

Thomas Burchfield

No response. I "re-bookmarked" the e-mail page and that seems to work.
