Is anyone else experiencing a problem logging into Yahoo mail? Yesterday and today it mostly wouldn't "click" and allow entrance. :(

There is no clicking sound at all. An error returns, asking that name and password be re-entered.

I did manage to get into 1 of my 2 Yahoo e-mail accounts today; but not both of them.

Never had this trouble before.

Seems to be working fine for me.

Have you tried logging in from a smartphone or someone else's computer.

I have a smartphone, might try that.

Other computer not an option.

I can currently access 1 of the 2 e-mail accounts. Formerly I could access both at any time -- even both open.

Now the other won't open regardless.

:eh: Wow.

Anyway, you'd be bored. :lol:

I'm wondering if the problem with that particular account is too much in the Inbox. Shortly before its inaccessibility I was having troubles composing letters. Will try first thing tomorrow a.m.

I find that I only seem to have trouble accessing my yahoo mail when I urgently need to access it.

:lol: Yep. :rolleyes:

Most any other time? Just for the heck of it? Opens right up...

the only thing i've noticed about yahoo mail lately is that a couple of weeks ago they forced me to the "new" format that they've been trying to get me to use for a couple of years... but only on this computer.. when i login downstairs, it's the good old comfortable Yahoo mail "classic".. trying to figure out how to get that back on this computer...

Yahoo! also wanted an alternate email address to allow me access "Just in case something happens"; Hotmail's doing the same. I guess they just want more personal information; I've had my emails for almost 15 years and never had a problem until they decided there's a problem!
