    Yahoo mail is the actual ******* worst. Dealt with a bunch of hacking problems in the past, it’s incredibly inconvenient to use and now they’ve completely wiped all my emails from my account. Can’t imagine if I had to use it for business.

    @twurby74 @ShannonD10 @angelgirl1976 @boltonnut @boogiechild5820 @lynnskyi @MichiganPal I haven't used ISP mail in years. I used it when I first got high speed internet with comcast years ago, and for the longest time they had an issue where no mail was coming in. So I went to yahoo mail then, then later google. It's worked out for me.

    @pri_sumit @umashankarsingh @bainjal A service platform like yahoo mail, which was initially only popular email provider, started 1997, in India around 2001-02. Back then dial up used to take forever to login into the internet, a cyber cafe used to charge 50 for an hour mostly used by Yahoo chat fans, around 2004.

    @PerdidoRecords @yahoomail @YahooSmBusiness @Yahoo @YahooCare @charliewood2015 No problem I know we were all probably feeling the same. I called 866-434-9017 and heard a message about being on hold. Then listened to the same tunes for a few hours before they answered. I had been calling the days prior with same results as you which is just a hang up. GL bud

  • IanHenshall Ian Henshall (@IanHenshall) reported

    @YahooCare It's slow because the morons at @yahoomail & @YahooSmBusiness have, without prior warning or allowing an opt out, updated millions of accounts which is now locking people out of their accounts and your giving virtually no help to those effected.

  • Mister_Shane Shane Maciak (@Mister_Shane) reported

    @DAACanada Your software doesn't work. I keep seeing click-bait garbage on my British Telecom BT Yahoo mail account. It looks really unprofessional and desperate. Thinking of dropping BT service based on this seemingly minor issue.

    @iamthearbiter @Tangomitteckel @JWoody30 @yahoomail @YahooSmBusiness @Yahoo I couldn't sign in either. I have some good news and some bad news for you Chris. Good news is I got thru to them on the phone and they helped me fix everything in about 30 minutes. Bad news is they have to help you with the temporary password and I was on hold for 3 hrs. 15 min.

  • iamthearbiter Chris Paul (@iamthearbiter) reported

    @Tangomitteckel @JWoody30 @yahoomail @YahooSmBusiness @Yahoo I have the yahoo login. Just doesn’t get me anywhere unfortunately. No worries! Thanks for your help.

  • Tangomitteckel Mike Mitchell (@Tangomitteckel) reported

    @iamthearbiter @JWoody30 @yahoomail @YahooSmBusiness @Yahoo I must be wrong. If the other one took you to the Yahoo login then that's the correct one. Until you get squared away with your Yahoo login I don't think there's much point in you trying to go anywhere at smallbusiness.

    @iamthearbiter @JWoody30 @yahoomail @YahooSmBusiness @Yahoo You might not be going to the correct page at smallbusiness for the initial sign in. There's an icon at the top of the page way over on the far right - don't use the "mail" secletion.

    @janda_jonny34 Hi Jonathan. If you're using the Yahoo Mail app on your iOS device, please uninstall/reinstall it, the issue is fixed.

  • billydesigns Billy (@billydesigns) reported

    Thank you everyone for replying to this Tweet. I still can't access my Small Business email from Apple Mail, but I CAN access from the Yahoo Mail app. Not ideal, but at least it's working. Not sure why Yahoo forced us to "upgrade". Seems like that's when the problems started.

    Hey @yahoomail, you should let your service folks know that the iOS app bug is still happening, but there is a fix. Delete the app and reinstall it. Its amazing that one side of the business didn't inform another.
