    @yahoomail is the system down, I've tried to refresh my email from 3 different devices and my last email was from 18 hours ago.

  • Demoore90210 Uchenna (@Demoore90210) reported

    @MobilePunch You’re not an INEC IT staff therefore you’re not expected to have seen INEC’s server physically. The same way people have used Yahoo mail for over 30 years but have never seen its server. Rather silly question from INEC’s lawyer IMO.

  • _femfemmm 🦄 (@_femfemmm) reported

    it is a good damn thing that i set up that thing where i hit a button and sign into my Yahoo mail via my phone. for the last few months i keep getting notifications asking me if i'm trying to sign in and i am ******* not.

  • Micolithe Alex 🍔🐺 (@Micolithe) reported

    @Addark @Munkeesgomu also re: instances, think of it like gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc. you can still e-mail any valid e-mail address unless that e-mail server is owned by a white supremacist and the admin of your instance has blacklisted it.

  • CMDR_Doxian Doxian (@CMDR_Doxian) reported

    Wow, no wonder people hate the Yahoo search engine. I entered "USPS tracking number" and the first two links wanted me to download an extension to see my mail status. The actual USPS tracking site was the 6th link down. Why

    Tell me why I can’t even login to my regular yahoo mail account. I’ve had this problem for years, and it’s annoying. I don’t use the phone number associated with that account anymore, and I’m not going to try getting it back, so I’ve been using gmail for years, and it’s better.

    @comcastcares @comcast When I call ATT they send me to TECH support who wants to charge me $50 (one time) or $180 yearly ($15 a month) to FIX a PROBLEM that is no FAULT of my own. BOGIE: "Sweet little RACKET you got there." I LIKE my ATT Yahoo e-mail which I've had for years.

  • devingunay Devin Gunay (@devingunay) reported

    @GyudonSeto Alternatively, if you're a wizard, host your own mail server. I tried, the email giants (outlook/gmail/yahoo/whatever) will render you invisible unless you can convince them you are legit.

  • jxuphoto Joseph Xu (@jxuphoto) reported

    Hey @FlickrHelp, if you try to enter an @yahoo email at the login screen, it tries to login via yahoo username even after you've set a new default e-mail. The API gets confused and doesn't let you login until you enter another domain's email address to find the correct login.

    @FlickrHelp I'm still getting the same error message - when I try to sign in to Yahoo mail! So I can't get to the password reset link... thanks for your help with this

  • thedaysawastin Steve (@thedaysawastin) reported

    @gmail Thanks. Via browser. I spotted on your forum that other BT Mail users are having the same problem. BT Mail used to be run by Yahoo some years ago, if that could be where the issue stems from.

  • 11XMaTriX 👉11XM@Tr!X👇🔋 (@11XMaTriX) reported

    There is a sender and receiver in every e-mail. The sender side has been acid washed and broken down one hammer at a time. However, the receiver is still out there in the form of Gmail. MS mail, Yahoo mail, and thousands of undisclosed Federal e-mails. Should be simple.

  • brhilde Brent H (@brhilde) reported

    @iheartmindy Either your yahoo email password changed or yahoo mail is having a problem.
