Email Delays and Not Receiving Email

Email Delays and Not Receiving Email

This has been going on for probably almost a year now. It doesnt matter what browser I am using. Emails are delayed or not coming in at all. Mostly these are "forgot UN/PW" emails from other sites but also others. This occurs in Firefox, Chrome, IE. There are significant delays (5 mins up to 5 hours or more) and sometimes the email doesnt ever come through. This also occurs on the mobile app on both IOS and android devices. I have uninstalled reinstalled the app and same problem. I have taken a look at the Raw Message as suggested in other posts and there appears to be a significant delay at least with a couple I have checked so far. Checked SPAM also. The same issue is happening on both of my free yahoo accounts.

 

Sometimes if I send myself a test email it will go through and bring the other emails in if that makes sense? What might be causing these delays?

Checking the email you mentioned, I was unable to see a big delay in the header. You can copy the header of the email and use this Header analyzer to see if there is a delay and where it is located.

 

@erdenebayar

Do they receive any error messages? Is it specific to one sender?

Its not one specific sender. Mostly i have noticed it to be system generated emails from companies i have requested login information such as forgot username/password.

Can you please tell me how you are accessing your account? Is it from a browser on your computer or from an app on a mobile device?

Are you seeing the delay in both the desktop version of Yahoo Mail and the Yahoo mail app on your mobile device?
