Any one else affected?
I thought at first this was a bump from 2001
Hundreds of people apparently.
Yahoo Mail DOWN - E-mail outage hits hundreds of users AGAIN
Workaround appears to be use webmail or yahoo app.
To be fair, all of my Yahoo accounts are around 20 years old.
Thanks, I knew it couldn't just be me, because my wife is affected too. I just checked and they all work on my PC (Thunderbird), but all dead on my phone.
Hundreds of users sounds better than all users.
Yes, ours was down. Up and running again, thank goodness. Felt lost without it. Didn’t think I used it that much .
Was down for me from yesterday afternoon until about 10pm, on iPhone, iPad and Mac mail. Web version was fine throughout.
Yep, was down for me too...
My Yahoo Mail's been working just fine for me since yesterday, with both the Android app and Android Chrome browser
It's still down on my phone
Is there an easy way to move email accounts from one provider to another? I've not been really happy with Yahoo for years, but it is an enormous task to cancel a 20 or so year old account with dozens and dozens of things registered to that or that account. Anyone knows of a way to do that?
Still down for me on my phone BTW
Slowly, over time. Start off with the main accounts the old one is used on and then whenever you get an email to yahoo update it with your new address. Do a ruthless unsubscribe first though for all the crap that you don't really need.
Thanks. It looks like it needs to be done rather sooner than later. I need to do a research who is a good email provider worth looking at, especially for my main accounts. Gmail would be fine, but they scan each email to bombard people with advertising. Some research is needed.
Don't you have manage some websites? Don't they come with mailboxes that you could use?
I use me.com (apple) and Gmail. No issues with Gmail.
The websites come and go, besides the domain inboxes are expensive.
Yahoo still down on my phone.
I've never had any advertising directed at my Gmail accounts (except for update alerts from the likes of Plex and Sygic GPS, which I don't count)
Yep - gmail user here for over a decade - don't remember any adverts - bombardments or otherwise.
From what I've read they scan each email in the inbox for keywords and then feed you ads based on that when you search on Google.
I have a few Gmail accounts and it looks like I will have to start a few more.
Ah I get you, thanks.
I have more Google targeted ads fed to me from my visits to AVF than I do from my Gmail.
Hasn't been down at all for us.
Only started working for me yesterday
Do either of you use the gmail app on android? When I go into the 'promotions' emails in the app then there's always a directed advert at the top. Unfortunately gmail puts quite a few necessary emails in promotions, like quidco, fitbit and gym class booking confirmations
Hmm promotions tab - no I don't think I have one of those? I get e.g. quidco in my main mailbox.
some quidco go into my main mailbox, others (eg tracking confirmation) go into promotions
No not here. Maybe I turned it off - or never turned it on.
Add or remove inbox categories & tabs in Gmail - Android - Gmail Help
Never noticed it before, and sure enough, lots of messages from Argos, Warner Bros and Gear Best . But as Gmail neatly sticks them in that category that I don't normally visit, I guess I can live with it.
Edit: Just did a spring clean, worst one was Social with hundreds of Youtube links, mostly in German
I ditched using the Gmail app in favour of Bluemail for all my email accounts on my android phone.
