  • LesleyHumphre11 Lesley Humphrey (@LesleyHumphre11) reported

    @yahoomail I have had no emails since 13:13 yesterday - can you provide an update on when this issue will be resolved please

  • HandsomeRandall TheHandsomeRandall (@HandsomeRandall) reported

    So @yahoomail is working like crap tonight. Must be time for one of their regular schedule tech issues that they'll never fix.

  • Roland42304387 nowwhat (@Roland42304387) reported

    @YahooCare First time ever that has happened, and shutting down the browser didn't fix it, but a reboot of my laptop did. The 12 other apps I had running and everything else in my browser worked, only Yahoo Mail had any symptoms. Thanks for your help.

  • Roland42304387 nowwhat (@Roland42304387) reported

    @YahooCare I'm still not able to see any messages. It is just spinning away. If I exit Yahoo mail, then I have to confirm that my work won't be saved, so that's why deleting emails doesn't work, so this looks a bit different than the big issue a while ago.

  • Regrem_Erutaerc Joshua McInnis (@Regrem_Erutaerc) reported

    @steam_games For some reason, my account says that my e-mail is yahoo. I haven't had that for over ten years, and I know I made an account to my new e-mail a few years ago. Yet, it's saying my screen name is to the old e-mail. Please fix. Screenname is Regreme

  • Kitsune808 Jay Prideaux (@Kitsune808) reported

    @yahoomail app. Last update freezes. Awful. Please fix

  • iamjoshstowers Joshua Stowers (@iamjoshstowers) reported

  • michaelgrr Michael Gross (@michaelgrr) reported

    computer broken - although I have an old one that's ok for the writing, I won't be communicating much this week. Anything urgent, try yahoo mail or sms.

  • JayHart909 Jay Hart (@JayHart909) reported

  • Themightylaw1 Tom Lawless (@Themightylaw1) reported from Laois, Leinster

    @Pound4Poundie @Eannak_ @Oloinsb2 @gomoireland @GoMoIrelandCare I believe there are problems with emails being delivered..I read somewhere that other than Yahoo mail problems are being experienced with retrieving mail from GoMo

  • BarryGassMedia Barry Gass (@BarryGassMedia) reported

  • ScottJoughNJ Scott Jough (@ScottJoughNJ) reported

    I guess it had to happen @yahoo but I've been unable to login to my #yahoomail. I've been getting the run around from ur #customerservice & was given a report abuse URL to submit my request for assistance. #RUKiddingMe

  • godwin_ogabo 五木春斗 🇯🇵🇳🇬 (@godwin_ogabo) reported

    @YahooCare I am having problems with my Yahoo mail I will send a mail from my Yahoo mail to other people it will go and they will receive the mail but if they send a mail to my own Yahoo mail it won't go through and I won't receive the mail

  • mohd_keri k.e.r.i. (@mohd_keri) reported

    Yahoo!Mail for iPhone is not working fine. Gua dah delete kat apps, bila tengok email kat browser, it's still there.

  • RogerASchwarz Roger S (@RogerASchwarz) reported

    @YahooCare This isn’t even related to mail. This is related to the garbage click bait stories Yahoo is so desperate to publish. Seriously, the Kardashians as a whole are so irrelevant and waste of time. This response is a dead end, and not addressing the real issue.

  • Femi0ni 0ni femi (@Femi0ni) reported

    That was the mail I sent from my yahoo mail. But till now access bank cannot confirm the account number that received my money erroneously. I have been going to the bank on several occasions but my issue was ignored.

  • ErinAltrama Erin Altrama (@ErinAltrama) reported

    @Wade_EU I am for sure having a lot of problems with yahoo mail recently.....perfect pest.

  • mrpiechee Mr PieChee (@mrpiechee) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam I had an email saying old versions of Gmail are no longer supported, and today my Gmail app stopped syncing with my sky account - except I'm on Android 9 with the most up-to-date version of Gmail... Looks like your 'update' has broken sky/yahoo mail...

  • zeehaydari Zerdeşt (@zeehaydari) reported

    @lajsheakhel The main problem is that you're using Yahoo mail 😅

  • FrancoFingolas Fingolas 💭 (@FrancoFingolas) reported

    @GrahamJefferies @SkyHelpTeam Logged out and back in using mysky app. Then my iOS mail server worked. Did not change password. Trouble is yahoo/sky falls over properly so much you just think “here we go again!”

  • JoelFernandes Joel Fernandes ✌ (@JoelFernandes) reported

    Just to check what's new, logged in to Yahoo mail after more than 3 years. Next login will be after 3 years.

  • saxylizbeth Liz Mitchell (@saxylizbeth) reported

    Looks like @yahoomail is down again. Yay.

  • magpie_417 VictoriaMeldrew (@magpie_417) reported

  • YahooCare Yahoo Customer Care (@YahooCare) reported

    @yabooknerd We are sorry for the inconvenience. Please make sure to update your browser and if the problem still persists try to access Yahoo Mail in another browser.

  • TissyCharles Queen Ting (@TissyCharles) reported

    Yahoo mail is actually terrible tbh

  • brandybrowny donna brown (@brandybrowny) reported

    is #yahoomail down again 😫

  • LancsKR Ean Sterling (@LancsKR) reported

    @bt_uk I cannot setup the email account on any apps (yahoo, outlook etc) on either my phone or iPad or computer - I constantly get error message saying server error. The only access to the emails is through MyBT. As this is my primary e mail account I find the service unacceptable

  • Parvez7077 Munavvar Parvez (@Parvez7077) reported

    @W31CAS @Yahoo Facing the exact same issue that you described. Lost of 2019 emails and yahoo confirms that there’s no way to get it back. Yahoo mail service is a joke.

  • wingedglo JEANETTE COX (@wingedglo) reported

    @aolmail This will not solve the problem because the error message shows up on ALL of my devices !!! This does not happen with google mail, outlook or yahoo mail...which ALL download INSTANTLY !!! It’s your servers !!!

  • ratik_patadiya Bhim boy 💙 (@ratik_patadiya) reported

    In terms of other email sync, @Outlook rocks. @yahoomail sucks all the way. Just shut down the website and leave already. Cannot sync in my Gmail either through app or website.

  • 1KarlSkinner Karl Skinner (@1KarlSkinner) reported

    @yahoomail Yahoo Mail sucks. They stopped their drop down box that allows you to BLOCK Spam. Now spam comes in like there's no tomorrow. Don't ever get Yahoo Mail. There are plenty of other choices out there.

  • Sunand47 नेपालगन्जिया (@Sunand47) reported

    I never login Facebook coz it's disturbing me n it's features where I never used my yahoo mail but it always asked me password which has send on my yahoo. What's rubbish.

  • wms_mary Mary Wms (@wms_mary) reported

    There's folks who've had problems w yahoo mail for years; still hard to use; still A Work In Progress. But save $2 on your guac 😊

  • Mustard5 LivingFractal (@Mustard5) reported

    @yahoomail I'm not quite certain who this advertisement is targeting. I'm amused by it, but have conflicting thoughts about what it is trying to say. The whole line 'never miss a deal' seems to be a problem that I don't have. The dog is gorgeous. They make an amusing juxtaposition.

  • Steven_OEFvet Steven McKinney (@Steven_OEFvet) reported

    @yahoomail You guys are the worst! My correct password is somehow incorrect. You say to keep up to date recovery info, but I can't sign in to my email to update my recovery info! Help, please!

  • cubedvggts3 Cubed Cinder (@cubedvggts3) reported

    So I get an e-mail from Yahoo that they're basically winding down Yahoo Groups. Took them long enough. :p

  • Burns_Mister C. Montgomery Burns (@Burns_Mister) reported

    @yahoomail Ever since iOS 13, mail is not downloading automatically. Not for ‘push’ and not even for ‘fetch’. You guys have to fix this...critical bug.

  • MichaelJDoyle9 Michael J Doyle (@MichaelJDoyle9) reported

    @va_cc11 Twitter IPad same problem, had problem with yahoo mail too, uninstalled and reinstalled ap works better for now

  • leejprakash Jayaprakash (@leejprakash) reported

    @YahooCare Hi, Today I'm coming up with a new issue I'm facing. I'm using Yahoo Small Business mail. Multiple times mails are sent to the recipient. Our recipients are complaining about this. I need your assistance.

  • BitterAfterDark BitterAfterDark (@BitterAfterDark) reported

    @_AintHavinIt You should also export your address book and re-import it into Gmail (or whatever; backup) Then tell everyone your new mail address. Setup an auto-reply in Yahoo after 6 months telling people you’ve moved. Then when traffic slows down, kill the account or auto-forward. Voila!

  • mobogdan mole (@mobogdan) reported

    to circumvent his broken g key I made a throway yahoo mail address attached to a team viewer account which I preemptively installed on my old iMac they're using via an iPhone hotspot. I should really receive college credit for this

    @bitjuana @mBTCPizpie @IamNomad They are having issues with yahoo mail apparently

  • maettig Thiemo Kreuz (@maettig) reported

    @Yahoo The email is titled "Evolution of Yahoo Groups". It says they want to continue #YahooGroups, as a part of @YahooMail. Why this requires killing the archives is everones guess. Probably legal issues they can't talk about.

  • Ligall Lesley Gallagher (@Ligall) reported

    @bt_uk @andrea39238252 We are having similar issues with dreadful email service via bt mail for a week now. Since coming off the yahoo link on iPhones and iPads it’s hopeless and no passwords recognised

  • mrmblue Julian Mahony 👻🤪🤥🤡🤖👺 (@mrmblue) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam is there a wider issue with email / Yahoo mail today.... Before I go to my in-laws to try and resolve issue.... Issue with account not found message...

  • _anjalipal Anjali (@_anjalipal) reported

    @YahooCare @YahooIndia Dear @YahooIndia no abnormal activity has been observed from my yahoo mail and I did not complain about it either. Why don't you focus on my main problem. I want mail access through password. Why is there no option of signing in with password on your app/web.

  • krmarko Kurt Marko🤔🇺🇸 (@krmarko) reported

    Deleted the Yahoo mail account, rebooted and all is good again. I became suspicious because the processes of adding the Yahoo Mail account took forever, a lot of spinning wheel animation. Thus, @AppleSupport I conclude Yahoo Mail support is broken in 13.2., but not PadOS 13.2. /2

  • _manlikejosh Jay O (@_manlikejosh) reported

    @blockchain Hello, I’m not getting emails for authorization on my Yahoo mail, Please kindly fix. I’ve emailed support severally but no response.

  • acefalobi Ace Falobi, Knave Girl 🌸 (@acefalobi) reported

    @wrdjsn I remember being 8 or 9 and I tried to open a Yahoo mail and they said I couldn't open one without an adults permission so I changed the date of birth. I was scared for werks because I thought the FBI would figure it out and track me down.

  • Zavier92 LeParisien (@Zavier92) reported

    @AppleSupport all these ios13 new features are awesome, now can you please fix the mail app. My iphone does no longer retrieve automatically my emails (gmail and yahoo). I reported this bug on « feedback » when I was on iOS 13.2 b4, and nothing...
