    @YahooCare As stated already, I have had the same issue using the mobile app and my laptop through browser. I have already answered all of these questions and proven to you that there is still an issue with Yahoo Mail. Please provide someone that can help me.

  • mdsaad1 Mohammad Sadiq (@mdsaad1) reported

    @YahooCare Hello Team, I’m using yahoo mail from very long. I’m basically from India but now I’m settled in UAE. I’m not able to login to my account as it’s asking for key account which I had configured to my Indian mobile number unfortunately I don’t have and access......

  • pearlsandparis Shareen (@pearlsandparis) reported

    Hi @yahoomail - I'm sure you have heard the saying "Don't fix what isn't broken." so I'm trying to figure out why you are pushing this new Classic mail format. I HATE IT! I use my email for business but this new format disables my links in my signature and fonts. WTF.

  • DoctorJRo Jessica S. Robles (@DoctorJRo) reported

    China was fantastic. there’s really nothing like actually visiting a place (even if only a tiny slice!). also feels like home coming back to HK. also excited to use google again...& delete yahoo maps & bing search & outlook mail off my phone 😆 dang they’re all terrible

  • williamolof01 hans norlin (@williamolof01) reported

    @YahooCare I got problems with my yahoo account so I think it is better to delete it because I can't use my mail box. I can't use reminders, calendar and login failed to my email. What will happen when I delete it

  • i_sushant सुशांत इनामदार (@i_sushant) reported

    @YahooCare I was accessing mails through Google Chrome... YAHOO Mail was not working well so I forwarded My Important mails through @gmail

  • KellieKellie916 Kellie (@KellieKellie916) reported

    @yahoomail is seriously malfunctioning. Can't get any answers. I don't think it is just Chrome because I use Mozilla Firefox. Frustrating #Yahoomail problems

  • Loony_BoB Daniel Towns (@Loony_BoB) reported

    @tammypowley @chrishares @yahoomail The AdBlock chrome extension was causing this, apparently. Oddly, it was disabled for Yahoo! Mail (ie it allowed ads to run on that site), and that was the problem. I was quick enough to enable ad-blocker for Yahoo! Mail and now (part 1 of 2)

  • pauldashworth Paul Ashworth (@pauldashworth) reported

    @MullinsAuthor. I've just read what you've said on the Yahoo Down site. I am getting the same issue. Whenever I try to check my mail I get an about.blank popup. Same here, I thought I was hacked. Sort it out @Yahoo.

  • SophiaCybulski Sophia Cybulski (@SophiaCybulski) reported from Mississauga, Ontario

    @AppleSupport thank you so much for things appear and disappear and you guys replaced this I phone for me and things are going to drafts Have issue with google and you tube and of course Rogers yahoo mail

  • schachin Kristine Schachinger (@schachin) reported

    .@yahoomail the right block that I cannot resize or move or collapse in the window takes up too much room and makes it impossible to resize the window smaller and read your mail. Please fix! (so getting off this thing as soon as I can this year - new mail is awful)

  • LauratheLibrar1 Laura in the Library (@LauratheLibrar1) reported

    @JacksBee When I have to ask patrons which e-mail they're having a problem with, 100% of the time it is Yahoo

  • Mackerelcat James W. Anderson (@Mackerelcat) reported

    @YahooCare Yes, they want to discard the interface at Yahoo Mail that works for ME as a disabled individual, the new interface has elements that DO NOT WORK for those with poor eyesight and stroke effects. I must not be switched until these issues are FIXED

    @tribelaw I have used Yahoo mail since it started, around 1997, with no problems, good format, storage, filtering, spam folders.

  • DanRegalia Dan Regalia (@DanRegalia) reported

    @windowscentral So, I wrote software to fix this for me.. I let my email go for a year, only reading what I needed to respond to.. the rest was 'get to later'. I have almost 28000 in my normal mail, over 100k in my yahoo (3 years worth). Hotmail is around 19k.

  • SuperMutant2099 Super Mutant 2099 (@SuperMutant2099) reported

    @TeamYouTube Yep. I just triple check that it was still enabled. I had checked already. I had been getting notifications to my yahoo e-mail. Have not been getting anything. For the first time in several days as I was typing it I got one. I figured it was some youtube issue that be fixed

  • Lynnie0524 Lynnie M. (@Lynnie0524) reported

  • makeup2meltdown Amanda (@makeup2meltdown) reported

    @yahoomail Get your crap together. This is ridiculous. I cannot switch between 2 accounts it keeps screwing up, and I have to keep resetting my password each time. It is NOT USER ERROR.......

  • YahooCare Yahoo Customer Care (@YahooCare) reported

    @GaryBerg100752 If you are accessing your email address from a desktop computer and also a phone with a non-Yahoo Mail app there will be syncing issues, if you encounter this you will have to remove and re-add the account from the app to fix the syncing issue -FR

  • tiggie20 tiggie (@tiggie20) reported

    @YahooCare I am not paying a monthly to retrieve a password. If you read that was the issue in my first tweet. I can not believe that someone has to go through all of this!! My whole family will have to stop using yahoo as their mail and go with someone else.

    @mjmmanoj @dialoglk @Wind_Desika May be issue with yahoo mail app or e bill format

  • KurtBusiek Kurt Busiek Resists (@KurtBusiek) reported

    Ha! I couldn’t get the e-mail on this old laptop to send mail, though it could receive it. I went to Yahoo, and they managed to get it to the point where it couldn’t send or receive. So I managed to fix it back to receiving but not sending and went to the Geek Squad...

  • calmology Calmology (@calmology) reported

    GodDAMNit @yahoomail! I can’t get into EITHER of my accounts and you won’t let me have ANY OTHER WAY to access these accounts. I’ve had them for a long time. This is TERRIBLE customer service and management of customer access.

    @YahooCare classic mail as new mail doesn't work properly with screenreaders. As in the multiple messages yesterday I'm blind so have limited choice. This problem happened a couple of years ago & it was a yahoo fault that your technical team fixed.

  • CaptainBagpipes Frankie Hill (@CaptainBagpipes) reported

    My grandfather wants me to “fix” his laptop because he “deleted the spellcheck” on his “yahoo mail” and “can’t figure out how to get it back.”

    @EmberNyxx @yahoomail I don't even know anymore. At this point, I'm just hoping the 3rd party mentioned yesterday can help resolve this issue since Yahoo clearly doesn't care about their users
