    online fraud was a serious problem 15 years ago. Then Yahoo messenger came along and changed d game. Even before the ubuqity of email, the earlier form of BEC (Business Email Compromise) was done with snail mail. Our govt was nonchalant and now it's spread like a virus.

    @airteltv Airtel Xtreme app is getting stuck in my TV box. Not able to change the channels. I sent a mail from my yahoo mail but in vain. Airtel doesn't bother about customer's problems. Pathetic.

  • Jeff41101 Jeff to Ashland (@Jeff41101) reported

    @YahooCare Dear Yahoo, it's been several weeks that I complained about @YahooMail and its setback that prevents me from alphabetizing my contacts by last name, and @Yahoo has STILL done nothing about it. Nothing has changed. I doubt you're serious about Customer Care and correcting errors

  • EscalanteBrew Jorge Escalante (@EscalanteBrew) reported

    @YahooIndia If you have the account key activated in #Yahoo #Mail and you accidentally reset your phone, then you cannot open your #Yahoo#Mail ID even if you have an ID password. I am suffering from this problem. Don't activate account yahoo's help service is a lot of crap

  • BFrownfelterND ✝️ Bonnie FrownfelterND⚖️🇺🇸 (@BFrownfelterND) reported

    @KevinforJesus @CraigRSawyer @NotMobRuled I haven’t used google in over 3 yrs there are other search engines & I use my server mail. Never have used gmail or yahoo for anything other than what is required for iPhone etc. That is how they captured you though making gmail a requirement to use their devices via contract.

  • ayooladejo Ayobami Oladejo (@ayooladejo) reported

    To access the IP address of the mail server, it had to be an insider job. That reduced the ability of Yahoo boys to access company mails. Also hard in the days before mobility became a thing. Once you left the office, the mail server couldn't be reached via the Internet.

  • PatienceOnuobia Patience O (@PatienceOnuobia) reported

    @gmail I receive email on the Gmail app. I can access them in my other device, but I cannot access the mail in my Samsung Galaxy tab. The problem is that I can't access my Gmail app, my Google browser and my yahoo mail app in my Samsung Galaxy tab.

  • sockacat M.E. (@sockacat) reported

    Helping 👨 w/computer. Yahoo email login is 2 clicks. He tells me “that is unacceptable-fix it one click is all I can do” 🙄. I can’t change yahoo dude. In the time u have argued you could have already logged in and deleted half the junk mail!

  • OriginalJahWoo John M. Wood III (@OriginalJahWoo) reported

    It'd be ******' marvelous if #Yahoo mail would stop failing to load and giving me error messages that are meaningless

    @yahoomail I got one suspicious looking email from one export.analyst@gsalogisticsindia that if I do not update my yahoo mail account, it will be shut down. It looks like a fishing mail. Pl clarify whether it is genuine or not

  • yashbujazz Yash Bajaj (@yashbujazz) reported

    @yahoomail You guys just deleted all my emails since 2005 because I did not login from 2 years. I mean you could've told us. This is poor customer service! Pathetic.

  • Dave_scr1pt Dave (@Dave_scr1pt) reported

    Bookmarked an important mail in my yahoo inbox 4yrs ago for future reference. 4yrs down the line my mail box has been wiped clean all kudos to the yahoo team. If y'all didn't make me make the permanent switch, you just did. *Censored words* 🤬.

  • annukman1 النُّعمان (@annukman1) reported

    @Yahoo_MY hi can help me to login to my yahoo mail. I forgot my password.

  • AvocadoGood 🥑 (@AvocadoGood) reported

    @MrRandem @PixTron515 @redsteeze If you use Yahoo, Gmail, other 3rd party email services of course everything is logged like did you open/close/delete something and even deleting stuff is just 'hiding from self' they still have it. On your own server homegrown you can access/read mail with tools nobody can tell.

  • rhall82 Rod Hall (@rhall82) reported

    @RockWOC @laurenelclark Laurene u have taken Yahoo U.K. down the same road as The SUN, Daily Mail, Express with no credibility, no integrity, no trustworthiness & journalists that acts like thumbsuckers. You pick a word & made a fictional article thinking it was a career booster. SIKE #NoAccess

  • bernmd B M D (@bernmd) reported

    @YahooCare @yahoomail AT&T hasn't resolved it, can you advise how to fix: transferred data to new iPhone 8, now my sent messages say "null null" in sender field instead of my name. Have gone into my yahoo email on laptop, changed sender field, that didn't fix it. Gmail works OK.
