Yahoo confirm Mail down and engineers fixing

Looks like Yahoo Mail is down again, and we can only imagine the anger users are feeling right now, especially as there was a Yahoo mail login not working not so long ago. Yahoo is aware of the issue and took to Twitter to put users minds at ease by informing them that engineers are aware and are fixing the issue.

It does seem like a few days does not go past when Yahoo Mail goes down for users, and so seeing people unable to login once again just adds insult to injury. Some of our readers have been in contact to say they have been able to login via their mobile devices, but once in it is very slow to load, and more often than not have to log out and in once again.

Yahoo confirm Mail down and engineers fixing

Many users have said they are seriously considering jumping ship and using a Yahoo Mail alternative, such as Gmail. In all the years I have used Gmail I have never had an issue logging in, and while it has had one or two problems in the past, it is a far more stable email service.

Yahoo Mail down

Some people have said they have been unable to receive emails all morning, which means they have been unable to login, just nothing comes through. Others have agreed by saying while they can login, the page will not load after that, and so are left with a blank page.

We have seen other tweets where one of them said day 4 nad still no emails, as there were sporadic login problems with Yahoo Mail just two days ago.

Is Yahoo Mail down for you once again, and if so how long do you keep going through with this until you consider an alternative?

Once again cannot access my Yahoo Mail on my PC. This is getting to be a daily issue. Very frustrating when looking for a job & expecting email correspondence.

Won’t load on PC, Mobile seemed to work but is not sending my emails. Extremely frustrating seeing as I was responding to a job offer, and trying to contact rental companies to secure a place for the end of the month. Looks like I will be homeless and jobless. Thanks Yahoo!

My e mail is frozen on the last one I opened and I can’t get out of it.
How long is this going to last? It also won’t let me change my password. It doesn’t recognize me as being human I guess!!

I can’t read my e-mails when I click on my messages. I can’t see my mail messages either sometime. e-mail is very basic. It should not be so difficult to read e-mail 🙁

Time to switch this is 2014, email isn’t some exotic thing. A multi-billion dollar company that can’t do email, what incompetence.

I’ve been a loyal Yahoo mail user and premium subscriber for ever, but this is the 3rd workday I have lost due to mail not functioning. Plus, I still hate the new look. It’s cluttered and ugly. Customer service is a joke – I was promised if I paid to subscribe, I could get help. None — time to jump ship. I loath the idea of going to Gmail — but will if I have to. What else do you guys recommend?

I bit the dust earlier this year and ditched YaWho after close to 15 years, a lot of them as a paid user. After the issues with the upgrade last year, I was so disgusted it wasn’t worth sticking around. And now they want to charge users $50 a year to avoid a lot of the advertising? Mayer and Bonforte have ruined what was a perfectly acceptable email system. Gmail has it’s issues but not in the reliability category. I encourage all Yahoo users to get rid of Yahoo or just use it for a spam box. That is what… Read more »

I’m receiving emails but there is nowhere for me to reply to them other than composing a completely new email…I haven’t heard anybody else having this problem or is it just me?

“We are aware of an issue that our engineers are working to quickly resolve.”

If there was anybody working at Yahoo qualified to be called an engineer, there wouldn’t be an “issue” in the first place.

It’s been down all day for me. It will try to load at times and then it won’t. Yahoo mail has been getting worse and worse over the past year or so. I think it may be time to leave after like 15 years.

it’s working now….PSYCH!!! Of course it’s not but I got you. Still get “Our email system sucks and it’s taking forever to load please try again”

Same thing. Seems it may be a mail,web server or database issue, as I to can log in, see the typical blue background that loads, but the database contents of my email, or its formating is not loading.

Isn’t it amazing, that even when you cannot get into your email, all the advertising works just fine?

Yes, ever since they did the big changeover a year or so ago, it’s been completely unreliable. Not being able to send them, not getting them, others not getting them when you thought they went through. I’ve slowly been switching everything over to gmail. I think I’ll have to complete that process for good now. It’s hard as I’ve had this e-mail address for close to 10 years.

even before this latest fiasco my email has been acting like a big whiney cry baby I have to constantly wait forever to get an email to open or to refresh, many times having to log out and back in. what a frustrating time-consuming pain. I can’t wait to ditch this POS

Yes, Yahoo mail down AGAIN in Seattle, business email account and personal. How the heck can they run a company like this. The delays in opening emails is so long that the browser quits trying – that is if it even gets to the mail page. Totally terrible performance Marissa Mayer!

I’ve had accounts with Hotmail, Yahoo, and Gmail for years the longest running being my hotmail account. I have experienced problems with all of them over the years but this is my 2nd day in a row with “Temporary Error: 17” and I’ve decided it’s time for my yahoo address to become a simple forward to my hotmail account. From now on my only use for yahoo will be the instant messenger.

Yahoo is a second rate product and has been for quite sometime. It’s undependable and is a security risk. The ads all seem to work just fine but that’s no reason to use yahoo. As far as I’m concerned for a long time it’s been run by a bunch of yahoos. The announcement that engineers have been working on the problem for some time suggests that their system is a total mess and that a reliable fix will be a long time coming. Good bye yahoo.

Not only is the Mail service useless lately the news article comment feature has been almost as useless and dysfunctional for at least 6 months now.

I relegated Yahoo mail long ago to junk service. This is the email address I give to pages or promotions that ask for an email address. Still there are older accounts and services as well as those that have proven to be more than junk that require me to check Yahoo on a daily basis. So it would seem the time has come to go through all of those accounts and change my email address since it has become obvious that Yahoo is no longer reliable.

Yahoo! has been a sentimental favorite of mine since the mid-90s, when it was my first home page. Even as other heavyweights have pushed Yahoo! toward irrelevancy I’ve tried to stick with them. But the mail issues have been going on for way too long and happening way too often. Enough is enough. I’m gone.

My yahoo mail has been difficult to get into for the last few days. Takes multiple tries to get in, and once in frequently can’t access messages for a time. Agree with others, need to use gmail now. Dependability is key for e-mail, needs to be available all the time, not just some of the time. Also, yahoo locked me out of my account when I was out of country because I was trying to log in from an unfamiliar IP address and I couldn’t remember the security info I gave them (not about to give them actual personal details… Read more »

Goodbye Yahoo. You totally screwed up big time. This will cost you BILLIONS is lost revenue. I am jumping ship to Gmail forever. You are losing about 1 million accounts a day. Sold all my Yahoo stock today as well.

Marissa Mayer turned Yahoo’s once capable email service into a frustrating, excruciatingly slow, capricious, substandard, often-non-operating pop-up ad. It’s a complete failure.

Yes, my Yahoo mail is down– But the new dynamic Yahoo Ford Mustang ads are up… Have to wonder whether the ad value is worth the frustration to those of us who will now be looking to move primary email to Gmail, or… You’d think they’d understand/ operate from the premise of ‘first do no harm.’
