    @YahooCare Clicking that link took me to my mail account. I have no problem logging into my account. The problem is when I try to go through all the steps to send an email to a yahoo specialist. It isn’t working which is why I’m having to conduct technical support via Twitter

  • DJdeLima Darren de Lima (@DJdeLima) reported

    @YahooCare Just tested. I can confirm that webmail is working, and eM Client is now working again for me. My iOS 7.1.2 mail app still doesn't work with Yahoo mail, though - "The sender address was rejected by the server". Double-checking my IMAP settings atm

  • Syr_Inge Nick Inge (@Syr_Inge) reported

    @YahooCare I’m using iOS 13 with yahoo mail app version 6.0. The issue has been around since the update before the most recent.

  • jsyed90 SJT (@jsyed90) reported

    @engadget If you try to login using @Gmail or @Outlook in the new updated @yahoomail app, it will take you to Yahoo sign up page instead of respective login page. Lol!!!

  • WickedResponses 😜fine (@WickedResponses) reported

    @nitdanigeria @gimbakakanda USA/Europe ve fined Facebook, Google, others for this. I wonder when wil Nigeria start. Of recent Yahoo sent me a mail apologizing for their server security breach. Yahoo promise to also compensate me only if I am a citizen of USA or Canada. But here I am, a citizen of Nigeria.

  • ardhipoetra Ardhi Putra Pratama (@ardhipoetra) reported

    @YahooCare Hi. In yahoo-mail, inbox folder, I got a mark showing that I have 1 unread email. However, I already mark all the folders as read and apparently can't get rid of that mark. Also, the IMAP is not working on my part (use 2 devices). All the settings are correct. Plz help

  • judefrank19 Judith Frank-Simon (@judefrank19) reported

    @YahooCare Please can you reply. As I said, every other time there’s been an issue where you’ve advised to uninstall & reinstall yahoo on my iPhone it has messed up my entire address book. I cannot have that happen again but want this mail issue sorted now

  • enthusmiasma a!v¡n (@enthusmiasma) reported

    E-mail from @ATT about a Yahoo account something unnecessary changes more secure blah blah settings. Urgent! Spoiler alert: Account's had same password since it was set up more than a decade ago and never had any issues. Giving away the ending: I'll just stop using the account.

  • wizardscroll bill shelton (@wizardscroll) reported from Jonesboro, Arkansas

    The driver of the blue Toyota pickup pulled something out of his left pocket and had it in his hand while being patted down. He then put it back in his pocket. Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone

  • MauryLesh Maureen Leshendok (@MauryLesh) reported

    Yahoo Mail still down. You can't get help without paying protection money.

  • MauryLesh Maureen Leshendok (@MauryLesh) reported

    Yahoo Mail is down again. 2nd time this week! No way to get any help unless you pay $4.99/month. Yahoo Mail is incompetent and poorly run and poorly maintained.

  • furky34 furky (@furky34) reported

    @spicyJeeravan @Yahoo @YahooTech @yahoomail same problem for me

  • judefrank19 Judith Frank-Simon (@judefrank19) reported

    @AppleSupport @yahoomail please can you help. This issue seems to be a yahoo mail issue

  • aarontttt Desert Ace (@aarontttt) reported

    @FrankDangelo23 @joncoopertweets Here we go again. Using Yahoo or G-Mail is in no way anything near setting up your own server in your house and accepting and sending Top Secret emails to and from your co-workers via this server. Then, you refuse to hand these emails over to the Govt. You can't be this stupid.

    @Jasonsomethin Yahoo Mail maintains the content of your mailbox as long as it remains active. Sign in to your mailbox at least once every 12 months to keep it active. Content deleted from an inactive mailbox can't be restored. -LL

    @YahooCare @yahoomail @Yahoo Yahoo still hasn't done anything about the problem that I reported with the layout and disfunctionality of Yahoo's Email Address Contacts. It's no good.

  • roger_mabutt RogerMabbutt (@roger_mabutt) reported

    @bt_uk The global outage has nothing whatever to do with this issue. When I go to the Yahoo Mail app to reinstall it (having uninstalled it very recently because it was working slowly - I thought I'd reinstall to clean it up), it takes me to a BT webpage which says "we don't support" 1/

    @nataliemrob Yeah it was my white minivan and I expect full restitution on your part to fix the damages. My insurance agent will be in touch soon via YahooMail.

  • konigssohne NEOAethyr (@konigssohne) reported

    @Styx666Official Use another google voice acct to verify with. Tie it to whatever cell phone, and even if the phone is long gone, the acct for google still works. You shouldn't need that unless you're making new acct's though. But I could see it being an issue, like yahoo mail sometimes.. 🙄

  • Det2ec Igor (@Det2ec) reported

    @Attur_Praveen @DuckDuckGo @michaelgroth @ProtonMail @TutanotaTeam @Posteo_de @Runbox @yahoomail I think it's fine because Apple is all about privacy and security. But, the down side is that you will only stuck with your iphone, unlike listed above - you'll gonna be able to sign in from any device.

    @BR3NDA Alibaba, but a Yahoo didn't have a controlling stake, which is why you don't have to login using your Yahoo Mail account.

    @SeanDKennedy @Microsoft @verizonmedia We ran into a Yahoo Mail issue recently involving a template I worked on and I had to point out that Yahoo Mail for Android was likely a tiny chunk of a tiny chunk of the market. At some point we have to start ignoring the bad eggs.
