Yahoo Mail Down Today?

There’s a number of ways to access Yahoo Mail that Down Today readers mention, and these include a free email app on most platforms, an online sign in, and other methods that all run into problems occasionally. This has sent some people looking for alternative email options, but those that love Yahoo Mail want to keep using it even when it’s not working correctly.

On this page you will see the current Yahoo Mail status thanks to reports left by users like you, so take a look below to see if there’s any problems right now and to leave your own report. If you do leave details about issues, then remember to give information on your location thanks to some problems being isolated to certain countries or even ISPs.

You are also welcome to detail issues with features within either the applications on Android and iOS, or the online platform when sending and receiving messages. Can’t connect errors are also common and can be related to outages, or local network glitches.

I use my Yahoo email address to access my Microsoft account. However I notice that when Microsoft requires a confirmation email sent to my Yahoo account, it always fails to send to my Yahoo Inbox or spam. Is this a problem caused by Yahoo or Microsoft?

My @btinternet account has been down since the 4th. When I try to log in online it says it doesn’t recognise the email.
I use Blue mail on my OnePlus which worked fine synching the mail, now it says it cannot authenticate.

Any suggestions?BT said it problemis not their problem, it’s yahoo.

Sky email issue Sun 8 Sept 09:00: Unable to send or receive emails via iPhone (apple mail app) or PC (Outlook email app). Can log onto and go to Yahoo mail and all emails are there. Spent 1 hour yesterday on phone to Sky support who had me delete and reset email account on the PC, but did not work and was then cut off. Phoned back and different support person immediately told me it’s another Yahoo problem, no time for resolution, try again in 24 hours.. Now 12 hours later any still not working

yahoo is hit and miss at the moment as I cannot access my Emals as I keep getting my old Email Address which I have not used for years and I thought I had deleted this Emal Address – do not want to change my Email Address as it would mean me contacting various companies which would be an hassle and time consuming on my part

I’m not locked out (BT yahoo), but can’t delete any emails and the page is only showing up a few of today’s emails and none of the previous day’s ones or previously saved ones. Can’t get into settings, now no idea who has, or hasn’t, emailed me. What one earth is going on with this?
