Yahoo Mail app problems continue after update

By Peter Chubb - Jul 29, 2014

The Yahoo mail sign-in issue is still affecting a huge amount of users in various countries, such as the US, UK, India, Indonesia and many more, and users are still in the dark as to why this is. To rub salt in the wounds it would seem that there are also several problems since the Yahoo Mail app was updated a couple of weeks ago.

Yahoo Mail app problems – Since the update there are still several features that are not working for users, and unsurprisingly the user name and password issue has also spread to the app.

Several Product Reviews readers have been contacting us as to some of the issues hounding the Yahoo Mail app. One reader said, “Unable to find the option to delete emails once selected read, as a result inbox is filled with unread emails.”

Another unhappy reader said “The Yahoo Mail app seems to take ages to load and there is a significant number of spam emails coming through.” That’s not all, as someone else said, “After the update I am not receiving any new mail, even after clearing the cache as requested.”

Have you ever seen the error code ‘919’ because this is what another of our readers saw when attempting to update to the latest version of the app?

It would seem that Yahoo is having a tough time of late, and as such has seen a wave of users leave Yahoo Mail and replace it with alternatives, with Gmail expected to be the biggest winner.

Are you still experiencing sign-in problems, or any other issues?

    My password was not accepted either, but if you are on an android, I discovered you need to do the Second Sign In Verification and it logs in fine. Second Sign-In Verification, Yahoo Mail for iOS, Android, and native apps now require app-specific passwords. (that came from the email, sorry it is so big). Your cell phone number needs to be connected to your account. You know that annoying reminder we all see to add a cell number to the account…. well this is why we had to do it. So if you have not done that, do that first and get the verification text code sent to your phone so you can link the cell phone to your yahoo account. It is another security feature. To get your password to be accepted on your cell phone …. via your desktop or laptop n log into your Yahoo account…..go to your account info (drop down under your Hi XXX). Under Sign In & Security you will see Set Up Your Second Sing In Verification… follow the instructions on the next screen. You will get a long password (you don’t have to remember it). Keep this on the screen. Go to your phone, enter this password as your Yahoo Mail password and voila.. you are in . You only have to do this one time. The next time you want to log in via your phone, it will take your normal password. This is what may need to be done for any cell phone applications / mail accounts, not just yahoo, if the password is not being accepted, so be sure to link your phone number to your accounts as needed.

    what is going on with yahoo email? I cant reply to emails or even create a new one. On top of that I signed into a particular account and it brought up another email account that I don’t use anymore but somehow it had all my emails in it from my personal email account!!!!! I’m going back to gmail or outlook.

      I have been asked many times to change my Password, after doing that I keep receiving spam mails in big numbers from people I don’t know or communicate with. Can you not stop this?
