There seems to be an outage today for those that use BT, Yahoo and Sky for their mail. Engineers are aware that some Yahoo Mail users are having a few problems. They have since sent out an apology for those affected, and are currently working on getting BT and Yahoo Mail back up, as well as the Sky email service.
We have heard from several of our readers that have been sharing their frustration, one of which had realized early on that Yahoo Mail was not updating on their iPhone.
Another assumed that it was an issue with the phone, and so deleted the email account and re-entered the details again, but still nothing — maybe they should have checked the Yahoo Customer Care Twitter page before going through that process.
We can already see on that Twitter page affected users by these email services being down are getting vocal, although understand that things like this happen from time-to-time. There was a similar issue a couple of days ago, although only affected iPhone users, so we do not know if these issues are releated.
We do not think the service has been down for long, but we do not have a timescale on when things will be up and running once again.
