Yahoo Mail problems

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 am not able to receive or send e-mails on Yahoo through Windows

  • Richard Ortt

    I have not received my emails since Feb 1, 2017. I can send emails but not receive them. This is happening on 5 different computer
    and different email clients as well as at least 5 different email accounts. Yahoo when will this be fixed?

  • Bruce9

    Can Not See A Full Page Of Inbox Emails. Looks Like 3-4″‘s of Dead Space At the Top of The Page. ????

  • Alyssa Ferguson

    Location is South Carolina… All of my ither email services have been loading just fine. I have been a Yahoo mail user for years. Ever since notice of account hacks my emails will not refresh on ANY device (pc, tablet, smart phone)… Does yahoo care?

  • digitaltoast

    Same here – just spent an HOUR resetting password, mucking about, deleting and re-installing account on Thunderbird. Nothing on the Yahoo twitter feed, and I can’t even find a status page for Yahoo mail.

    Same as you, I can login to the server just find, but pop3 is sporadic – occassionally it works

  • Ludlum Mckenzie

    Oh come on folks, stop complaining. It will all be sorted out as soon as the CIA, NSA and FBI have done reading our emails today. Phew, I hope they do not read my Googlemail, I think I still have the plans for my next op on there.

  • Renee Groeninx

    Problems logging in this morning January 12 2017. did the verification to my mobile but afterwards get the ‘Engineers are working on it’ page.. So if they sent me a message about essential work I can’t see it!!

  • sheradean

    I can’t even read my emails each time I scroll down to see my messages the page freezes and this can’t be done . It’s not a problem with my phone because I can access other email which are not yahoo. Yahoo get your act together this is becoming annoying now.

  • Derek McPherson

    Seriously this email is becoming a JOKE,time to move on ?

  • Diane Hayes Sullivan

    Deleted email keeps coming back to my inbox. IT has been doing this for days! I am about ready to change. Anyone else having that problem?
