Anyone else having this problem?
Any of you with a Yahoo.com mail account having this problem?
Told me I had to log on again.....so I quit it for later
I am experiencing the same problem.
Yes. Login issues for everyone for Christmas.
Same thing here, I thought it was just me.
Someone is probably doing NSA checking on our e-mails. Not to worry!
I am. I reported it.
If it’s not one thing, it’s another with Yahoo mail. I too had to sign in twice this AM. I’m phasing out of Yahoo and into Gmail.
I have the same exact problem. Btw, one way to check on the status of Yahoo mail is to read the comments at http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/mail.yahoo.com.html , where many others report our problem.
No problems with my Yahoo mailing accounts.
yep, unable to access email today
the latest and worst in a dismal 2 months of failing YAHOO email service
With identity theft raging I would not be surprised to see they are fishing for passwords and identity.
You might as well put your personal information out to the public when you use these. Yahoo sells your information to make enough to cover the “free” email.
The “improved” Yahoo mail is so bad I’m looking for alternatives (dreading having to make all those change notifications, tho)
I was able to get into my mail, but when I went to log out, it said my session had expired.
sorry, Bender...couldn't resist. Hope it clears up for you. I don't have Yahoo, but I went thru weeks of Comcast being glitchy.
ditto, not that I like google
Yesterday, my email server (not Yahoo) refused to deliver two emails that “I” sent.
Flagged them as spam.
How can two legitimate business messages that I generated be flagged as spam??
There is something hinky going on.
Just tried their 1-800-318-0612 for Login Help and even it is overwhelmed and unable to do anything.
Every time I try to open an email it tells me my time is up and I must log on again.
am thinking of making the announcement to those who matter by putting my new email in a “vacation” message, then turning off yahoo email - if I ever get back in
problem is I manage hundreds of contacts via email lists to serve multiple projects for my nonprofit
I pity anyone who uses Yahoo as part of trying to earn a living
Same here. All my email accounts are down.
There is a link in this thread that lets you access your email account.
Warning, I used that link, signed off my account. Now I cannot get back in. Oh well, need to go do some Christmas shopping.
The NEW IMPROVED! yahoo is trying to be a copy of gmail. I hate the unavoidable chaining of email and the loss of most of the tools I used. Wouldn’t shutting down the system be easier than trying to induce everyone to go somewhere else?
Me too. Something is out of kilter.
Merry Christmas from Yahoo Mail!!
My Yahoo mail acted up so much over the last 6 months that I’ve switched to mail.AOL.com. Heck, I was even PAYING for Yahoo, and they screwed up my mail!
Yeah, first Target, now Yahoo. Who’s next?
Same thing happened to me about ten days ago. My mail was out for two days. I reported it. I got a follow up incident number and an “all is well” email from them later. I guess I was in the first round...
No problems here.
Just tried it again and all working okay— So far!
“The improved Yahoo mail is so bad Im looking for alternatives (dreading having to make all those change notifications, tho)”
Yea, this will be my last go with this tomfoolery. I get the unsecured content message more and more even in the “secure” email system, it use to just be the log-in screen. Why have advertisements on a log-in screen, stupid is as stupid does. Gmail is NOT an option after what I know about them.
One of my Y accounts is down, the other is ok.
What's u'p wit'h th'e unnecessar'y apostroph'e? Like other possessive pronouns, (e.g.. ours, its, his, hers, theirs), the word "yours" does not include an apostrophe. Apostrophes are properly used to denote possessive nouns (e.g., Jim's, Mary's, the Martians').
But unlike Obamacare, Yahoo has already fixed the issue.
I used to like Yahoo's mail service, but they made a lot of changes last fall that made it worse, so I, too am phasing out of Yahoo. I wish they had heeded the old saying that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I just tried my Yahoo Mail. No problem.
I think I still have the ‘classic’ view.
I usually ‘read’ any Yahoo Mail through a standalone reader: Pop Peeper. It works with both Yahoo and Gmail.
Google has long used a similar system to deliver advertising to Gmail users. Yahoo! is now following suit and has defended itself by emphasising it is asking users for their permission.
We think transparency is key because our business depends almost entirely on the trust of our users, a spokesman said.
The smartphone app has been working ok for me today...I don’t go near the Yahoo website anymore. They destroyed Yahoo Groups with their changes.
Yahoo used to be the go-to but Obama’s clone must be CEO over there...
I did. It seemed to clear up, though.
seems to be working now......I guess the day shift took over
Yes, me also. By the way, I’m in the UK at present.
I am also now able to get back in consistently. Problem solved, it seems.
Yes, I had exactly the same problem about an hour ago. But it's working fine now. Glad to know it was not a problem with my computer.
It's the old Yule log . . . in.
Had the same problem this morning. Working okay now.
What email service do you recommend?
