    @Yahoo someone hacked into my yahoo mail account and immediately removed my secondary email and phone number for alternate contact information. Suggestion for the future- don’t allow alternate contact info to be removed immediately after a suspicious login was made.

  • iceman1989z Iceman Capital (@iceman1989z) reported

    (2) Yahoo was forced to solve similar on different platforms such as Search and Mail which led to higher consumption of resources over time. If they solved the right problem initially they wouldn't have run into this issue

  • ObviouslyBen Ben Hughes 🏳️‍🌈 (@ObviouslyBen) reported

    I genuinely believe a new version of Yahoo Pipes would be the best total-pivot of @Yahoo’s platform / brand. Shutter the frontpage. Minimal UI portal login. Choose access to Mail, News etc — & re-introduce Pipes. Yahoo could be the free API connection + hosting hub it once was

    @YahooCare Hi Please check your DM about an issue we are having with how Yahoo mail is pulling our companies images and company info when opening emails we send. It is using old data and we cant seem to find out where its pulling from”. Other email clients don’t have this issue.

  • harryjohnCT Harry J. Lew (@harryjohnCT) reported

    @YahooCare Thanks for your response. It wasn't an account recovery issue. The Yahoo Mail window was rendering improperly on my screen so that the clickable "mail" at the top was not visible. Hence, no way to actually get in. However, late yesterday, the problem resolved itself. Thanks.
