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.

  • cjthelder

    I have not been able to access my Yahoo mail account for three days, using Firefox. I can with MS Edge, but I never feel safe using it, and never did with IE either.

  • Cipriana Muring

    How can i access my yahoo mail in this device, i felt to do it

  • Geoff Burns

    For the last few days Firefox has failed to allow sign-in to any Yahoo service, although I can still reach them on Chrome.
    It is normally the “Connection timed 0ut” error, although for half an hour last night I was getting a different one.

    By the way – trying to sign in using a Facebook ID forces me to a Disqus sign-up (which I don’t want). You might want to check your links . . .

  • Stephen McCrory

    Why won’t the newest version of Yahoo! mail load properly? I get some headings, with some links that work, but can’t see my emails unless I revert back to Yahoo! Basic……Please can someone tell me what the problem is, or how to fix it?
