Yahoo mail login not working, say users

By Alan Ng - Oct 22, 2014

It was only a few days ago since we last reported on Yahoo mail problems, but now it looks like a fresh batch of issues have arrived today. At the time of writing, Yahoo mail login is not working with many users fed up with the continuing disruption of service.

Perhaps worst of all for users is that there has no communication from Yahoo regarding the frequent outages and fans are starting to get impatient. As far as we can see, Yahoo email login is completely down although those who have been able to login cannot read Yahoo mail messages anyway due to an error.

This has been in effect for hours, some even say up to 12 hours in their area without any word from Yahoo or an estimation on when Yahoo mail will be working again.


Those wondering if a change of browser could solve the problem, we’ve tried multiple browsers and still cannot log in to Yahoo mail either, so something is definitely up.

Hopefully Yahoo’s Mail team will respond to the complaints and issue a statement on the matter as soon as possible. It also appears to be affecting Yahoo customers in many regions so it’s surprising that there hasn’t been an official update from Yahoo regarding this.

What is your Yahoo mail status at the moment? Can you log in right now, or are you still having problems?

    i have been having issues for weeks now with yahoo mail. today is 11/18/14 and yahoo mail is completely down right now. but for the past 2 months most days it takes me 20-30 minutes to finally be able to sign into yahoo mail IF i can even get that far!!i have done everything their “tech page” says, relaunch browser,clear cookies, ctrl+f5 …blah blah blah it’s not us yahoo it’s you. i am seriously considering going to Gmail but the pain in having to change everything over is the part i don’t want to do. yahoo really sucks right now

    Error 4 on some messages. Intolerably slow to load various Yahoo sites. Worse today but often a problem. Yahoo sucks and they should all have their pay docked until they make it work. Stupidest decision makers anywhere and that is saying something.

    If I get in, nothing is displayed in the Inbox. In fact the whole shebang locks up. If I can’t get in, I get “Temporary Error 14”. Which is as useful and the proverbial f*rt in a spacesuit. Happening all morning. November 6th.

    Have been having Yahoo Canada issues the past two or more days. I got in briefly today but simple commands like move to folder etc. is a problem. Right now unable to access mail folders at all.

  • Mochipants

    Yep. Mail’s been down for two whole days now. It’s a miracle anyone uses their services anymore.

  • eyob amare

  • Charlie

  • Chris Horsefield

  • majid

    12:40 am, Nov 5th and still Yahoo mail is not solved. what the heck Yahoo? learn from Google.

  • Rose

    I HATE Yahoo Mail–Never mind the disruptions in service…I hate the way messages are lumped together and you have to check “Message History” to find older mail–and even then, I find it impossible to find what I’m looking for. Does anyone else share my frustration???? I don’t want to use my present provider, Verizon’s email, because I may possibly have to switch from them back to Comcast when they increase their rates and I go back to Comcast (my previous provider) as a “new” customer to get a better rate. Does anyone have any recommendations for an email service? Have you had any experience with GMail?

    • Mochipants

      Gmail is WAY superior in terms of usability and reliability. I don’t think my gmail has ever had an outage before…not that I remember, anyway. Conversely, my yahoo account is only accessible maybe half the time. That goes for the entire year I’ve had it.

  • Mo

    I have not been able to access my yahoo account for months now and when I call the wait time is extremely long that I hang up. And now I can’t access via my phone now UGGGHHH!!!!
