Skip to comments.Having trouble with Yahoo Mail.
Posted on 11/15/2010 7:50:59 AM PST by everlast
When I try to open my yahoo email contacts, it tells me 'Connection Refused.' Someone please tell me why it is doing this.
Just had some problem accessing my email through Yahoo
as I am not at my own computer, but went through
Yahool.com / mail and then went through just fine.
I think everyone is having some problems with it this morning. It happens once in a blue moon.
Having the same issue this morning. Weird. That does pop up, but the mail seems to be going through okay.
Yahoo is doing the slow march to insolvency. There was an article Friday about how Yahoo is doing layoffs, again, after promising the last layoff would be all there ever was. So, management appears to be in error, or liars, either way, not exactly inspiring. There is a talent drain going on at Yahoo, on top of being short staffed.
Gmail or hotmail may be better options going forward.
BTW, I’ve been getting errors, and I don’t have a virus.
I just sent an email but had to verify the security code word. First time that has ever happened. Plus, I have been getting emails saying my address has to be verified or my account will be deleted. I just delete those.
My contacts’ address list has stopped coming up automatically in the Yahoo email address box. I expect when I reboot the problem may go away. Lots of problems can be remedied that way.
I’ve been having problems all morning - it’s been extremely slow.....
Same here - my contact list is not coming up at all!
I just tried that and got this message....
Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because the protocol (c) isn’t associated with any program
We are experiencing a temporary system problem.
We are undertaking some essential, but extensive maintenance to improve AT&T Yahoo! Mail. During the maintenance period, some users may experience problems accessing AT&T Yahoo! Mail.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. Your account is in great shape and we are working to have it available again as quickly as possible.
AT&T Yahoo! Mail Team
Never mind, I got it. THANK YOU!
I just tried to access my email acct and got a message from yahoo.com that the mail system is under extensive scheduled maintenance right now and that “you might have trouble accessing your mailbox”....said they’re working to get it back up as quickly as possible.
Like some of you who have had trouble with Yahoo, my contact list was gone this morning on att.net. I called att support and they indicated Yahoo had problems in system maintenance and would things would be corrected in 24 hours. Hope this helps.
Because you're not logged in...
Contact list now coming up in Yahoo email.
Now that you mention it, I haven’t had any Yahoo mail since 5:27 AM and I am usually inundated with mail by this time of day.
