    @YahooCare I just read the latest reviews for Yahoo Mail on the App Store & I’m not the only one experiencing this. It’s something on Yahoo’s end that isn’t working correctly especially since I’ve tried troubleshooting the problem on my end & my cellular provider work fine everywhere else.

  • amykay613 Amy Adair (@amykay613) reported

    @YahooCare Not resolved... mine was fine until this morning. My app would not load. I deleted & reinstalled & now cannot get access. I try to go to yahoo mail through chrome on my phone & get an error message.

  • Loveme0913 Love me (@Loveme0913) reported

    @YahooCare Reinstalled the Yahoo! Mail app, and a different mail app still not working. When I try the browser it will not even load the Yahoo screen. My mom is also having the same problem since last week.

  • YuriHerrera5678 Yuri (@YuriHerrera5678) reported

    @YahooCare I can’t log into any yahoo applications on my iPhone or set up my mail account via iOS. I have the latest version. I keep getting a login loop. I have already cleared my cache and cookies. I am able to access yahoo mail only via the website

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
