  • MichaelKFreeman MKF (@MichaelKFreeman) reported

    @yahoo Since I cannot message you privately, I will have to complain about these issues publicly. It is ridiculous that Yahoo mail attachments cannot be downloaded. I click the download button and nothing happens.

  • sailorwild Wildstrike (@sailorwild) reported

    @MojangSupport I have been trying and trying to migrate my account but for the life of me it will not send a recovery email to my yahoo mail. My yahoo mail seems to work properly I am so lost for what the issue is and Yahoo hasn't been helpful at all.

  • PsychoTey_art Tey🔞 (@PsychoTey_art) reported

    I do not receive a commissioner's emails for some reason? I hope Yahoo mail has a temporary bug/error. I've never had this happen before, no idea what could be the problem...

  • Fkharrell Frank Harrell (@Fkharrell) reported

    @yahoomail What is going on with yahoo? Everytime I try to login, I get wrong password. I change my password. I try to login and get the message.

  • twolettuhs äpplëjüïcë (@twolettuhs) reported

    @yahoomail your service is garbage. Won’t let me reset my email but it says you know my information was part of a data breach. Fix it. Your ****** security led to a breach. Your help service costs money. How are you still a business

  • sorrynotsorry58 sorrynotsorry192747 (@sorrynotsorry58) reported

    @Veronic22006591 @justconcerned30 Try outlook, yahoo mail they worked for me and then sign in from the website

  • Marathonpundit Marathon Pundit (@Marathonpundit) reported

    Working on moving over to gmail full time as Yahoo f*cked up my current account--they can't fix it. DM me for the gmail address if you need it. #Yahoo #gmail #yahoomail

  • unikunka Daniel Kunka (@unikunka) reported

    I know this is like an old man yelling about the squirrels but is anyone else having trouble with Yahoo mail sending stuff to their spam folder? It's been killing me the last few weeks.

  • qed57 LostRaceOfMars (@qed57) reported

    Anyone else having trouble with #YahooMail on a Chromebook?

  • NormanCharles66 Norman Charles (@NormanCharles66) reported

    @yahoomail down? I can't access any of my emails and people's addresses don't pop up when I start typing them.

  • The_S_Express Selena (@The_S_Express) reported

    @YahooCare An ongoing issue with Yahoo Mail is my account acts out of sync between an app and the web. Yesterday, e.g., as often done, I saved a file there from my 📱 to download on a 💻but had to wait ≈ 13 minutes before it appeared in the latter's Drafts. Explanation/solution?

  • Herbert_Viana Herbert Viana (@Herbert_Viana) reported

    @YahooCare As a Yahoo Mail user since 2009, I'm disappointed in the support you guys provide. I still have the problem reported in the DM and no one comes up with a solution.

  • TurnOnThePower Derek Williams (@TurnOnThePower) reported

    @NatashaCL7 Yes I think so. I don't use gmail for that and other reasons. I've always used yahoo mail, and never had any problems with it.

  • Trew1Trew roberta trew (@Trew1Trew) reported

    Am I the only one annoyed with the miniscule font when writing emails on Yahoo Mail on Iphone 13? You can enlarge READING emails with Apple Reader but not when writing. I have loved YahooMail but no one responds to this. Apple says it's Yahoo's problem @YahooCare aol Gmail ok

    @yahoomail You need to fix whatever you’ve done in the past few weeks to litter my inbox with spam and send my actual correspondence to spam, or I’m abandoning your service after decades.

  • CsMuia Charles Muia (@CsMuia) reported

    @Yahoo what does rate limited mean? getting the error when attempting to access yahoo mail.

  • ukgirlinsf mary french (@ukgirlinsf) reported

    I need my Yahoo Notes back but don’t have the patience to call Yahoo Mail a third time & go over the issue again w/someone I don’t understand! They should have a technical support office in the USA (all about saving $$!) but bad customer service. Their automated robots useless!

  • lavanyadeepak Deepak Kumar Vasudevan (@lavanyadeepak) reported

    @YahooCare It looked like a transient issue in @yahoomail and/or a #PassingCloud. Things are looking fine now.

  • cubedvggts3 Cubed Cinder (@cubedvggts3) reported

    Yahoo Mail used to have a problem where old and long unused accounts would suddenly contact me with malware links (of course I didn't click them). Now it's happening on DeviantArt, only with links begging me to buy NFTs. Glad to know some things never change. *rolls eyes*

  • RebeccaPetruck Rebecca Petruck (@RebeccaPetruck) reported

    @yahoomail, the generate an app password has been unavailable for days. Is a fix on the near horizon? I use this for work. Thanks,

  • Herbert_Viana Herbert Viana (@Herbert_Viana) reported

    @YahooCare I'm having trouble receiving emails in my Yahoo Mail. Can you help me?

  • David_Dierking David Dierking (@David_Dierking) reported

    @yahoomail Is Yahoo mail down? Every time I try to login, it just brings me back to the login screen again. This has been going on for more than a day. This is my main source of communication for work!

  • MallIbadan Ibadan Mall (@MallIbadan) reported

    @FlwSupport your sign up not working .your emails forgot password not working, no emails after trying over 30 times with yahoomail ,gmail This is a big firm but you are underperforming..I think your focus is on profits only and not the content How come for 8hours now

  • IrishTea1 IrishTea1 (@IrishTea1) reported

    Well this is news @Verizon, @YahooMail. I switched my phone two weeks ago. @YahooMail refuses me access to my email. Even though I answered all prompts correctly, NO GO! They want my driver's license number to access my account. That is not happening. Fix it!

    @yahoomail down?

  • ckft82 TeaCup (@ckft82) reported

    @yahoomail The weirdest thing happened. I copied the email I wrote, that was sent back to me, to send to a different email address. When I pasted it, it showed a layer on top of what I copied and pasted. The layer was a previously view email. It's probably a glitch.

  • AugustaKlumpke Augusta Déjerine-Klumpke (@AugustaKlumpke) reported

    @SamGuichelaar Move to Gmail or Outlook. I am not being flippant. After trying for years to fix yahoo mail I realised that the best thing to do was to move over to gmail. Spam detection is more of a server side issue, you can’t truly fix it yourself.

  • RabelaisA11y Alcofribas Nasier (@RabelaisA11y) reported

    @singhk_uttam Not yet, but you soon might be. @yahoomail has become virtually unusable in recent days. You can't even scroll down the list of folders anymore.
