mail.yahoo.com completely down

After it spins 3-4 minutes I get Yahoo - we'll be right back thank you for your patience. Please don't tell me they're being hacked again

Re: mail.yahoo.com completely down

Today I got the message "Yahoo down our experts are working to fix this" message.

I gave it an hour still the same but found out my Mrs PC was getting Yahoo e-mails OK.

 

So I tried logging in on her machine and it worked, which now got me thinking could it be 

my E-mail short cut on the desk top? Sometimes these go silly after windows update etc.

 

So I deleted the shortcut , googled yahoo mail login and made a new desktop shortcut.

Logged into my E-mail using new desktop short cut and ...

Everything works fine again , I've got my E-mails back.

 

So it's worth a try if others tell you they have normal Yahoo mail service.

New error - It did let me in for a sec but couldn't open, delete anything, etc

We're experiencing some technical difficulties...

We’re sorry, but Yahoo Mail can't load due to a temporary error. You can try back again shortly, or visit our help pages for ways to troubleshoot the issue.

@ crazygravy - That error usually indicates your account is getting a server update. It should resolve itself in another hour or so, at the most.
