How To Change Time Zone Settings In Yahoo Mail

Yesterday I got an email from one of our readers asking how to change the time zone settings in Yahoo Mail. He said that when he receive emails, Yahoo does not show the proper time. It happens because while creating your Yahoo account you select different country and time zone. So here is a step wise step tutorial to change time zone settings to IST.

1. Sign in to your Yahoo account and at the top right, click on Options and select Mail Options.


2. Now, in the left hand side panel, click on Account Information

account information

3. A new Window will open, enter your password again

4. Under Account Settings click on Set language, site, time zone

account settings

5. Here, under New Setting, select Yahoo! Asia and under Time Zone select GMT India and click on Finished and you’re done!

I have just tried to do what you suggest, but the options are not available, there is only accounts, and when I go here, it give me this —
Pardon our appearance during construction
We’re still tweaking the Yahoo!7 Mail Accounts option. Temporarily you’ll need to access it through the Yahoo!7 Mail Classic interface. But, rest assured, any changes made will take effect once you’ve reloaded the Yahoo!7 Mail.

Thanks – can you help

marcus, you should switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic. That was my problem at first but realized that the new Yahoo! Mail still doesn’t support some things that Yahoo! Mail Classic has.

options>switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic> and then follow the steps stated by the author here..

Cheers! Ü
