Yahoo Mail app on Android 8 has stopped working

Dear Community...

Happy New Year 2019 to all!

My app on Android suddenly stopped working yesterday. Nothing seems to fix it... so I even uninstalled, and then again re-installed the app.

Still, no luck.

I see the Welcome page.. i click on "Sign In With Yahoo"... i can see my account, and I click on it... a small window pops up saying "Initializing Mailbox" with the round time thingy next to it, and it goes round and round and round and ... for about a minute or so ... then nothing happens.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

K

Hi, Arthur;

The issue seemed to "fix itself" about 15 minutes ago ... so, not sure what was going on.

But, to answer your question : yes, I could sign in my laptop, no isses.

The problem is now solved... thanks for your response.

 

Cheers,

K

Greetings @kamrank50

 

Are you able to sign into this account from a laptop or desktop?  Have you installed another email app like the BlueMail app to see if you are able to set up your Yahoo account in that app?

Please note that the classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available after January 30, 2019. At that time, you'll be upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or basic Mail, depending on your browser's compatibility.
