  • EricLuftig eric luftig (@EricLuftig) reported

    @YahooCare Hi. Problems with my account. Yesterday it logged me out of all my devices - desktop. iPhone yahoo app. iPhone mail app. I logged back in last night. This morning I was logged back out of the iOS apps. I managed to log back in. But Apple mail is not working.

  • ibarryj Barry Jones (@ibarryj) reported

    @bt_uk The problem is the login domain of BT/ Yahoo. BTINTERNET supports mail via IMAP and POP clients - these are what Apple iPhones and Tablets use for email!! It is the IMAP/POP services people are complaining of. Webmail (via a browser) works ok. Very frustrated you are arguing

  • Juliepol42 Julie Llewellyn (@Juliepol42) reported

    @YahooCare I have not been able to access my email account on my laptop in outlook for 2 days I can sign in via yahoo mail and see a message there are issues when will this be fixed

  • whiskersmouse Whiskers Mouse (@whiskersmouse) reported

    @flyk6cr @bt_uk Yup! 3 wasted hours last week to be told I should use WebMail not Outlook. Curiously we have 4 BT mail accounts and they all take it in turns to drop out. Clearly a BT/Yahoo authentication server problem.

  • MorrisPark MorrisPark (@MorrisPark) reported

    @Flickr very disappointed with your service, I bought a Pro account a couple of months ago, when I try to sign in I get redirected to Yahoo mail; I also received an email about a free photo book (it was marked as spam) is that a real offer. The name on the account is Judy Ferony.

  • travelkenzie Kenzie (@travelkenzie) reported

    @YahooCare It says that the yahoo business account is a phishing scam and the page will not load. The other yahoo email is fine. All of a sudden constant problems with yahoo. I still can’t access it on my phone through mail. I had to lay to download the app. Very unhappy with yahoo.

    @bt_uk IMAP email on iOS not working since yesterday... probably yahoo (although I did update to IOS 12.2 a few days earlier) No settings accessed or changed at all and as others clearly have the exact same problem I will wait and see for a bit longer. POP mail on PC is also down now

    @YahooCare I tried setting up my yahoo mail under iOS 12.2 but the login page just takes me to mail. Instead of Authenticating the mail app.

  • kgiannakidis Kostas Giannakidis (@kgiannakidis) reported

    @YahooCare Yes, I had the same problem at the past but it was resolved. Right now, I can't see business email from my yahoo account, business mail is not being delivered at iPhone (authentication was OK) and the option of composing mail from yahoo or biz has been lost

  • trumwill Will Truman (@trumwill) reported

    My advice to the free email providers: GMail: Alternative domains (premium fine, maybe preferable.) Outlook: Simultaneous logins GMX/Mail-dot-com: Let me stay logged in or make logging in easier. Yahoo: Stop being so terrible.

  • Bill_Canter Now...everything is 'exactly' different (@Bill_Canter) reported

    .@Microsoft Well, once again my Outlook is NOT working. For at least the 20th time since I was #ForcedToPay for it, it has stopped getting my gmail and yahoo mail. I was #Forced to allow microsoft to access my gmail to try and put in my PW, and it still doesn't work.

  • DarranBeard Darran Beard (@DarranBeard) reported

    @bt_uk I'm speaking to someone now 40 mins in and still no sign of a fix. Seems your mail link with Yahoo has broken or been deleted.

  • TimMaddog Tâi Siáu-káu (台痟狗) 🇳🇫 Taiwan 🌏 (@TimMaddog) reported

    @kelake @kerim I think it was AdBlock Plus that once prevented me from logging in to Yahoo mail. I was just wondering out loud if Ghostery (which Kerim once recommended to me, IIRC) would cause the same kind of problem.

    @ShortGuy45acp @JesseKellyDC The rare double down of unread Gmail and Yahoo mail

  • randgmom Lisa Nesbit Reuss (@randgmom) reported

    @YahooCare Thanks. I figured it out. All my business contacts were in my other Yahoo mail account, which I never sign into nor use. So that's a nice glitch in the upgrade process. Might want to fix that.

  • ske7ch Brian Jarrard (@ske7ch) reported

    Repeat: this is NOT a flight invite. This is a welcome to everyone who signed up. Also, check your spam/junk folders. If you don’t get the mail in the next two days then there may be an issue (we know Yahoo doesn’t like letting these mails through)

    @jessamyn @librarygameguy And the scandal of yahoo mail putting the print command as a drop down under an ellipses. It's been years but I helped someone with it just today. Which is why it's fresh in my mind.
