Yahoo! Mail Issues Reports

  • YahooCare Yahoo Customer Care (@YahooCare) reported

    @anuj_iitd1 We are sorry for the miscommunication. 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.

  • marcuslynn Marcus Lynn (@marcuslynn) reported

    @yahoomail major problems this morning sending email from my account. Keep getting a "looks like a spam email you are sending so take out the links" message. These are brand news emails to one person I'm sending with no links.

  • Shajeejalali Shajee Jalali (@Shajeejalali) reported

    @Facebook I am having some issues with the email. I wanted to change my Facebook password so, it sent a verification email to my yahoo mail connected to Facebook. Didn't get one even after requesting new for 10 times.

  • umang5891 Novice Investor (@umang5891) reported

    @YahooCare I have format my phone. Now again I installed Yahoo mail on my phone but unable to sign in using user id and password. In Yahoo mail app,First ask for user id then on next page message appears tap on the account key icon. Get account key code and enter here.

    my mom asking me to fix yahoo mail cause it's down. 😔

  • shymon99 simon foster (@shymon99) reported

    @skyuk @yahoomail Brilliant..... You tell everyone you need to upgrade to latest version.... Then you have an error and cannot work with latest version...... Seriously worse email service ever. Why do I bother.... Time for a new provider

  • JandDChat J&DChat (@JandDChat) reported

    @yahoomail, my yahoo account isn't loading. It now takes forever to try to get into my email. (all other apps load quickly so problem is with your app). I have tried to send email to advise you but your systems do not allow. Please contact me to get fixed.

  • jubilant101 JUBILANT JAMES (@jubilant101) reported

    If you want to do serious business using an email address avoid @YahooCare and @yahoomail because they will frustrate you when you need them to solve some technical issues for you. @gmail remains the best for business.

  • Shajeejalali Shajee Jalali (@Shajeejalali) reported

    @Facebook Hello! I am having some issues with the code. I wanted to change my Facebook password so, it sent a verification email to my yahoo mail connected to Facebook but I am not receiving those emails. Please help me out with this issue. I can't lose it.

  • Doomed_Daniel Daniel Gibson (@Doomed_Daniel) reported

    @gpakosz @cmuratori @gmail I think this was about sending E-Mail *from* GMail.. But yeah, running your own server is not trivial either if you wanna get past the spam filter of GMail, Hotmail/, Yahoo Mail etc

  • SherrieReeves1 Sherrie (@SherrieReeves1) reported

    It appears from her email address, which the Telegraph is choosing not to publish, that Ms Maxwell had set up her own secret mail server rather than entrusting her messages to major providers like Google or Yahoo

  • DarrenHiller DarrenHiller (@DarrenHiller) reported

    @YahooCare having some issues with yahoo mail. Acting weird. Not responding to icons. Pls help!

  • Deepstate6969 Deep state (@Deepstate6969) reported

    @ProudBigDaddy2 guccifer said he gained access through simple social engineering, and the darkweb server that was selling some of the info was NOT shut down after his another hack could have easily have happened through H.Abadin and her yahoo mail account..@RenaissanceCapital

  • BigFoot77082127 BigFoot (@BigFoot77082127) reported

    @Tanker_God My Yahoo mail & account got hacked, Yahoo wanted $ to fix it. I just shut it down, got another notification about another unauthorized use, years later, changed all the passwords, and shut it down. Yahoo tried the old "but your friends & business associates all have your email"

  • KristijanZic Kristijan Žic 🇭🇷🇪🇺 (@KristijanZic) reported

    @jospoortvliet @killyourfm @Nextclouders @Microsoft365 @Google Yes I don't have that much time but I could still find some. I did setup the MiaB but the issue now is deliverability. Half of the mail sent from MiaB ends up in a spam when sending to Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo etc. Im now looking at Amazon Workmail with the hope to solve that issue

  • Scottlagan Scott Logan (@Scottlagan) reported

    @Yahoo trying to look at my yahoo mailbox, and it won't let me do anything unless I also sign in through Outlook. I don't WANT to manage my Outlook box on Yahoo. Don't understand why you're forcing me to, to use Yahoo mail.

  • shiroikumo17 Shiroi Kumo (@shiroikumo17) reported

    @crackanduse @YahooCare @yahoomail @Yahoo EXACT SAME PROBLEM. Worse tho, I used said account for very important matters. I know my password and everything, just my phone contract ran out and thx to 2 stop verification I cannot get to it anymore. It is so so important however. I cannot just let it go!! @Yahoo

  • Arkchris Chris Goddard (@Arkchris) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam What has happenede with Yahoo mail. My Android 9 Phone stopped receiving e mails today. I know my PC client needed to change buit not Android, Says server unavailable and cannot find a phone helpline

  • ElaraEcho Elara (@ElaraEcho) reported

    @YahooCare Adding: It may well have gone to my spam folder. Yes, yahoo's own mail to me goes to spam. If a yahoo mail is in my spam folder, I tend to ignore it, thinking it's not legit. Perhaps yahoo should fix that, which is a real problem.

  • MrAaronBall1 Aaron (@MrAaronBall1) reported

    @bstategames @LIRIK @drdisrespect @DrLupo @CohhCarnage @Sacriel42 Fix the yahoo mail verification codes

  • Beautyon_ Beautyon (@Beautyon_) reported

    There are going to be many companies developing different tools and services on top of Bitcoin. Complaining about them and listing problems won't make new services appear. It's like complaining that Yahoo Mail is not as good as Gmail. Both sit on the same internet. You choose.

  • geek_breezy 𝕭𝖗𝖊𝖊𝖟𝖞🇿🇼 (@geek_breezy) reported

    @WaveHQ Please help! I can't login using yahoo mail. When I tried changing the password, couldn't receive the password recovery email from wave. The problem actually started when we stopped receiving invoices I ticked "send a copy to myself" on wave. That wasn't a big deal though

  • treasa45 theresa (@treasa45) reported

    Bloody Yahoo mail down again !!! Two bloody days now 😡 absolute joke 😡😡

  • bhatnagar76 Shikha Bhatnagar (@bhatnagar76) reported

    @yahoomail - haven't been able to access my email account for over 12 hours. Cleared my cache, used different browsers, no luck. Getting "temporary error: 15" Doesn't seem so temporary! #YahooMail

  • HamariJaan BlackBeatle (@HamariJaan) reported

    Started Jan 15th PST time around 7 PM. Tried Chrome, Firefox still getting "We are experiencing some technical difficulties Temporary Error: 15" #yahoomail

    Wow @yahoomail @YahooCare is terrible tonight, issues loading, emails disappear, and no trouble shooting works, simply not good enough yet again

  • Emma_Meerkat Emma Wright 🌹 (@Emma_Meerkat) reported

    @lukebayer The BT server is a nightmare, try using the yahoo mail application.... its often a get around for that.

    @yahoomail is down yet again on iOS, won’t load emails, nothing wrong with phone or internet connection @YahooCare

  • YahooCare Yahoo Customer Care (@YahooCare) reported

    @JustForSaran Hi Saran. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. 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.

  • Jaiye_Benson Thunder⚡ (@Jaiye_Benson) reported from Abeokuta, Ogun State

    @directordiji Yahoo mail delivery is very slow. Saheed actually missed an opportunity cos of yahoo mail

  • AtefHRM Atef El Maghraby (@AtefHRM) reported

    I have faced a YAHOO MAIL# problem since last night where I cannot access emails older than yesterday. What can I do

  • mackenziehunt Mackenzie Hunt (@mackenziehunt) reported

    @yahoomail needs to stop forcing it's users to sign into the yahoo mail app when they aren't on their phones. I'm usually on my laptop most of the time and I'd rather sign in on there, rather than on my phone. I also can't stand that in order to sign in on to my primary account

  • kir_lim Кирилл Limping (@kir_lim) reported

    The same problem. IMAP at Yahoo Mail stopped recently :-(

  • MicknJennynToby Toby (@MicknJennynToby) reported

    Yahoo Mail down again!! 😠 (Sky email platform). Thinking of using a long length of string and 2 tin cans as a more reliable alternative 📞

  • DoubleUSee DoubleUSee (@DoubleUSee) reported

    @YahooCare Starting to get authenticate errors again - same symptoms whenever there's a #YahooMail outage... Hopefully not again!

  • vanessafrank3 vanessa frank (@vanessafrank3) reported

    @chey_cobb @MillennialPriml @thespybrief The problem is it's not just fb selling your data. Twitter will as well, my old email provider which was BT (via yahoo) was scanning mail and selling data. Not joking I found it in the t & cs

  • KafeeKent Kent McAfee (@KafeeKent) reported

    @YahooCare My e-mail address is an AT&T address, that I have had for over 20 years. Yahoo's popular for ID theft, just like facebook. I don't want anything to do with a group. AT&t said that I could keep this, even though they're not my ISP. Google's not been giving anyone problems.

  • YahooCare Yahoo Customer Care (@YahooCare) reported

    @Robert29103 Yahoo Mail appears to be working currently. f you are experiencing issues, please DM us.

  • 2308spike spike2308 (@2308spike) reported

    @bt_uk You can’t do anything about it, it’s a yahoo issue and it needs to be sorted by them, so now I wait for a call back from the yahoo team, it’s all due to your great link up to yahoo mail that went tits up, absolute shower of shit that turned out to be!

  • xeltoid deltoid (@xeltoid) reported

    you goddamn websites cant play stupid when i literally wrote down my passwords that i double-checked were correct at the time. seems like yahoo mail forgot my CORRECT password while insisting it was wrong. sad!

  • X1nimEventsPH X1nim Events Ph 🇵🇭 (@X1nimEventsPH) reported

    Print out request is now closed. Again this is optional. No need to print out your e-ticket, just show me a screenshot on DDay. Kindky check if you still haven't received any confirmation email since we're having problems with our yahoo mail.

  • SOAR_Ldn SoulofaRebel (@SOAR_Ldn) reported

    @susan_pym Had the same problem with the generic mail ap on my phone. V annoying. Downloaded the yahoo mail ap and it seems to be working ok.

  • AreaNative Lisa Wiseman, Intero Real Estate (@AreaNative) reported

    @ATTHelp I'm unable to enable email security. It appears you do not have two factor authentication. I'm unable to create a secure mail key as the info the instructions give do not show the same thing; no scroll down, etc. I have an old pacbell/yahoo account.

  • Gordon_Gekk0 Jim E (@Gordon_Gekk0) reported

    @Yahoo has been carelessly deleting emails for active users of their @yahoomail product as part of a maintenance effort to cleanup inactive mailboxes. Their support team tries to blame it on user error and takes no responsibility. What a way to handle long time users. @verizon

  • atxwanderer bdette atiny is seeing ATEEZ!!! (@atxwanderer) reported

  • AlanJenkins2 Daniel Victor (@AlanJenkins2) reported

    Possible hazard with Brave browser [not its fault]. Brave browser has a built-in adblocker.Last time I checked,using an adblocker with Yahoo Mail auto-deleted the email I was reading.Problem being,Brave helpfully offers to import bookmarks from Firefox,so lookslike Firefox

  • YahooCare Yahoo Customer Care (@YahooCare) reported

    Some UK users are having problems logging into some services this morning. On investigation, it seems that login issues for UK Yahoo Mail customers were limited to 1 ISP, and not related to any issues on our side. We have reached out to the ISP to inform them and are monitoring.
