  • dSmk differentSmoke (@dSmk) reported

    @yahoomail hey guys, turns out hitting the backspace key on your web interface deletes email without asking nor sending it to the Trash. This is unacceptable behavior, please fix ASAP.

    @KarlMaloneGGG @yahoomail Bro straight trash . Can’t even pay the 5.99 to talk to somebody if I can’t even sign in smh

  • alanjbanks Alan Banks (@alanjbanks) reported

    Irritated by BT. Can't login to my account. Seems they've changed everything with my BT and Yahoo Mail all mixed together. Live Chat froze my PC twice -how does that happen. Chap on phone knew far less than me. They'll write with a password reset. Archaic!

    @yahoomail @Yahoo someone hacked into an email account of mine, and because I don't have the same phone number anyone I cannot get into it to fix it. I recieve business emails on that account. I would appreciate help accessing it back. I am highly aggravated.

  • myla_miss Marla A Myers (@myla_miss) reported

    Facebook, Instagram and Yahoo mail all went down and we must believe it was coincidental...

  • steven_wilcox Steven Wilcox (@steven_wilcox) reported

    Finally figured out how to sign in with a password on Yahoo Mail... but I had already signed up for a new gmail e-mail because I was getting tired of having to sign into the computer by them sending a code to my phone to type in on my computer. Very annoying and complicated...

  • IAmJerdog Jeremy 🥑 (@IAmJerdog) reported

    I find it a bit odd that Gmail, YouTube, Yahoo Mail go down over the last 24hr - and then Facebook and their properties go down afterwards and are still experiencing outages...

  • CarrieFairygirl Carolyn (@CarrieFairygirl) reported

    @justmominit Facebook, Instagram & yahoo mail have been down today. That is what I read in the news anyway.

    Facebook said it’s not a DDoS attack which means this could be some sort of malware or spyware attack. Yahoo Mail, Gmail, Google Drive and other Yahoo/Google server issues have been popping up between last night and today.

    Well, the authentic Mafuyu daki I managed to track down ended up getting lost in the mail during proxy shipping. Being so close to having it in my grasp has caused me to resort to refreshing 5 different Yahoo Japan Auctions searches daily.

  • dawnsbreath Pippa Little (@dawnsbreath) reported

    @Capt_Caffiend @brenakiwi Hmmm. No longer a Yahoo mail user sorry, never saw that in my day...things were so much simpler then... maybe turning the server off would let you access the fields, but it may also wipe the email from your phone...😱

  • FarshadFFK Farshad (@FarshadFFK) reported

    Is it only me or you guys also struggling with @yahoomail technical problems every once in a while. Almost every week there is a day that I can't open mails for hours. Really boring 😩. Doesn't happen with my gmail though

  • JM__Clark ~JM Clark~ (@JM__Clark) reported

    I would like to formally apologize to @yahoomail for my last tweet. The moment I sent it I was able to log in without a phone number, must've just been a glitch in the system. Again, very sorry for my previous statement. Let's pretend it never happened.

  • ontiquarius Anton de Guerre (@ontiquarius) reported

    @YahooCare Not sure what's meant by 'set up'—I just log in to Yahoo! Mail like any other website—but I don't use the Internet on any other device than the laptop. The only variation in how I access Yahoo! Mail is that I use different browsers. I've never experienced any issues from that.

  • indydartthrower Dawn Myers (@indydartthrower) reported

    @yahoomail What is wrong with Yahoo Mail. It won't let me sign in says I've signed in too many times in 24 hours. This is impossible since this is the first time today.

  • peaceheartjava Peace.☮Love.♥Coffee.☕ (@peaceheartjava) reported

    After almost a year of @yahoomail not fixing the problem of my not being able to re-add an email address that was forever greyed out, and being totally unresponsive about the problem, I'm happy to be leaving Yahoo for Outlook email. So long, Yahoo.

  • skyhopper Michael Strother (@skyhopper) reported

    @YahooCare It's not a problem with email... I don't use Yahoo mail. It's a problem with photos in Yahoo Groups. I just had a friend check the same group on his computer, he is seeing the exact same problem that I am.

  • CJelleyman Charlotte Jelleyman (@CJelleyman) reported

    @yahoomail despite your multi-stage verification process, my account has been hacked AGAIN and Spam emails have been sent to all my contacts. I have not had this problem with any other accounts, it's simply not good enough.
