Yahoo email problems

Anyone having problems with their Yahoo email account. I'm unable to get the website to display any of my messages. It will bring up my inbox but nothing happens when I click on a message - I get a blank page. I can't delete messages either. Tried both Firefox and Explorer with the same results.

I've had several problems with the account in recent weeks. This, combined with the ongoing "improvements" to the home page has me rapidly nearing the point where I'm going to give up and go elsewhere.

Edit: I see by the graph below thousands are reporting the problem - meaning hundreds of thousands are probably experiencing the outage..

It's not my primary email account but I opened up my inbox and my first message and it displayed fine, using the web interface.

I've had intermittent issues with both the webpage and with the android app for Yahoo! mail. But it recovers.

I'm *not* a fan of their new "improved" user interface for mail, my yahoo, groups, etc... Removing functions is not improving things.

Over the past week the problems showed up. My android app wouldn't log in, force me to enter password, and while typing I'd see new mail load.

On PC's in various browsers it just goes into a deep freeze. Or when it loads there is a delay when you switch to other folders, tabs. I call it the Marissa Moment...

Yahoo e-mail is not my primary e-mail account, but I just went there to check and had no problems reading my e-mails there at all. But then, maybe the problem is on a different server or something.

It did do one peculiar thing - - after I read the first e-mail, it signed me out so I had to sign in again. How odd! But then, I was able to read more e-mails.

My problem continues on my computer but I can see the emails OK on my phone. Maybe Marissa had to change a diaper or feed the baby and forgot to turn the email server down here in Texas back on..

I have Yahoo! email through AT&T. It's not reliable for me.

the changes they made to Yahoo email made it flat out not work for the first few weeks.

Then it seemed to be better, until this past week.

I too am experiencing problems, but on the computer and not on my iPhone, same as you.

My Yahoo email through AT&T seems to be working. This is a secondary account for me.

I've had problems off and on for the past few months. I mainly use Firefox, but have had other issues with Internet Explorer.

Probably my most frequently occurring issue is that the menus/folders on the left don't respond - like I'll click on "Compose new e-mail" and nothing opens up. Have also often had the "click on an e-mail in the inbox and the preview doesn't open up in the window below", or I'll check the box next to multiple e-mails to delete (or move to another folder), but after checking the multiple e-mails, the menus don't respond to clicking on "Delete" or won't move them to a folder I try dragging them to.

Works, but I get an annoying vertical rectangular ad which I can't get rid of, covering part of the screen !

My Yahoo mail is the one I send trash registrations to so I rarely look at it. I went over to see what all are describing and I don't see anything. It is working fine. I do see "Switch to the new Yahoo mail" in red (or something similar) at the top. I guess I will refrain from this switch until people report that they love their new Yahoo mail (or Yahoo does the switch without my blessings).

I am changing email providers to a free service. Yesterday, I got about 5 minutes into setting up a yahoo account before deciding it was not a good sign that, in that short time, I'd gotten 3 messages saying "sorry we're over capacity." Gmail.

I'm on a very active board and must get 75 to 100 emails per day for posts in threads that I'm following. I haven't had any problems, yesterday, last week, last month, last year, need I go on? It's my primary email account and quite active. I never understand why so many have issues.

I'm guessing - just guessing mind you - it's because you're special.

Obviously I and the other 5,000+ who bothered registering a complaint yesterday around 2:30 PM EST do not share whatever gift has been bestowed upon you.

Got an alert from VZW about the stock email app on my Android phone.
Mobile Email App on Older Devices Discontinued on 3/28/14 | Verizon Wireless
I am having the login problems with Yahoo mail on one of the listed devices.

Some are missing the complexity of the issues. Device, OS, Service Provider, App, Browser, Addins...it makes for a varied experience depending on the mix you have.

I haven't had any issues, but then I'm just using my plain vanilla desktop PC.

Me too - that's where I had the problem yesterday and on several other occasions. I've rarely had an issue with the Yahoo! Mail app on my android phone.
