WTF is wrong with Yahoo mail today?

I can't access it at all. Keeps popping up a message about new and improved speed. Then wants you to accept but when I do it times out. It's pissing me off.

Same here. I hope they get this issue resolved soon!

Yahoo mail sucks—gave up on them a long time ago. Never had a problem with my Gmail account.

on the radio: it's because of new terms of service...when you accept you get locked out of your account.

Today??? It has been on a rapid decline for months. My account has been compromised regularly and have a password is now up to 13 characters with random caps and numerous special characters inserted. I've had the email address forever and hate to part with it, but may have to. I do too much electronically these days.

At least the obnoxious paid ad/email is less prominent.

That must be annoying, hope you get that worked out. Hopefully, you're not getting a Trojan.

by Anonymousreply 2310/08/2013

Serves you right for using Yahoo Mail.

by Anonymousreply 2410/08/2013

People who actually use email used it. Gmail is not functional, especially not compared to the way Yahoo WAS. Now they're exactly the same, and it's all fucked.

You can change it back temporarily by clicking on the gear on the upper right hand side of the mail screen. Click on settings, then click on 'viewing email'. Uncheck the conversations box and scroll down to select "basic". It will revert you back to this bullshit up Yahoogoogle update every time you close the window, but at least you can switch it back (for now) when you have to actually USE email.

I wrote to customer service ( over it. I am NOT going to stay with Yahoo, if they don't change it back by the end of the week. If I'd wanted to wade through Google bullshit, I would've stayed with gmail.

and they moved the log-in/out button deliberately on the right with a faulty drop-down that forces you to click on a sidebar ad if you miss it.

If you have AT&T and you use an Apple product, you should ditch the evil Yahoo-AT&T combination and switch your e-mail to the native MacMail (that is, if you have an iMac or laptop.)

Easy and simple to use & no advertising like with Yahoo.

I did and never looked back.

MacMail is great.

We all know gmail exists. It sucks. That's WHY we don't use it. Yahoo Mail WAS better until today, when it became the same as gmail. Now I'm on the lookout for an email client that is actually functional for sending email (i.e. NOT gmail).

Mac-based email clients are useless to me, as I do not have a Mac, nor am I going to get one.

by Anonymousreply 3710/08/2013

You might want to check, r37. I like the interface a lot and I haven't seen any spam yet.

by Anonymousreply 3810/08/2013

Just checked out, and I hate the interface.

It does that same bullshit conversation grouping. I. Will. Not. Use. This. I also should not have to hover over and/or click on seven different things to find a command or an icon that looks like it MIGHT be what I want. I don't need a mail client that blocks images to "protect me". And I also find this "no lines" crap that has infested web design to be irritating and unhelpful.

On the menu bar (delete, move, spam etc) on the far right, it says View. The drop down menu gives you some options.

I couldn't find my saved-in-folders emails until I clicked on "folders", under the trash link and moved mouse to the right. Unfortunately when it opens up, it layers over the left hand links and is unreadable (safari) .

by Anonymousreply 4310/09/2013

I followed #25's instructions advice and I am now back at the basic yahoo. The new format is just like gmail which I hated.

by Anonymousreply 4410/09/2013

After reading this thread, I went over to my yahoo account and had no problem accessing it. It also was in the same format I normally have. I am using an ipad, but I don't know if that has anything to do with this. .. However, facebook asked me for my password, today, for no apparant reason. I log in to that with a yahoo account.

I have five email accounts, including google and yahoo. However, I access all of them via Apple's iCloud and I don't have a problem with any of them. Also, I've never heard of getting ads on one's email page. How is that possible??

by Anonymousreply 4610/09/2013

Since Yahoo changed their Groups format, I can't post.

by Anonymousreply 4710/09/2013

Temporary fix for those needing one: Open new Yahoo mail, copy the url, click on the gear, choose settings and viewing email, change to basic view, paste the url back in the navigation bar and hit enter.

Now you can actually use your email again.

R48, I did that and still have problems, and yes my browser is supported and up to date. I complain to them, and they just keep telling me to switch to basic, even though I tell them I am using basic. Error messages, delete won't work, sometimes emails won't open.

by Anonymousreply 5310/17/2013

I've used Yahoo since I got my first computer (late starter). It was simple, which I needed, but now it is a mess. How could anyone in the business come up with such a convoluted, dysfunctional setup? Since they've changed it, I can't get the font to work; I can't change the subject on a reply; I can't see the email to which I'm replying without going up and clicking on it to open it; sometimes my mail has gone but I can't find out w/o going to my "sent" mail; with the overlay setup (instead of letting us seed the e-mails to which we're replying), I have unintentionally sent mail to the wrong recipient (very embarrassing) - one was a bank (dangerous) - it's just so confusing and unreliable and annoying. Most annoying is that there's no one to complain to. Yahoo doesn't care and this all falls on deaf ears (or group entries I'm sure Yahoo pays no attention to or why would they continue after all of the complaints and the mass exodus to other companies. And the ads and spam! I get sometimes every hour. My family and friends? - "What's spam?" A shame it's become an unusable user-unfriendly place.

[quote]I want to switch from Yahoo mail, but it would be such a pain in the ass to notify everyone of my new email address.

This. I've been wanting to switch from Yahoo for some time now but hesitate due to the fact that changing addresses now, after all these years, will be such a colossal pain in the motherfucking ass.

I've had Yahoo since about 1998 and it's been my primary email address ever since. To leave now means I'd have to not only alert all my friends and relatives but also change it with my bank, my employer, various subscriptions (like the NYT), etc. and I just don't know if I feel like going through all that. But as time goes on I feel I will have no choice because the site has truly become a piece of shit. It's constantly freezing, you can't mark more than 2 or 3 emails at a time for deletion without it suddenly going shutting down, the way you reply to emails now (as outlined by R54 above) is just shit now, and so on, not to mention the Yahoo customer service people could not fucking care less. You write them about any issues you're having and you can forget about getting a response. They simply do not give a shit.

Lastly, as much as I'd like to change addresses, at this point I wouldn't even know which service to switch to -- just about every one you hear/read about now has apparently gone to shit (Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, etc.). At the end of the day, it would appear none of them are worth a fuck anymore.

Read the Vanity Fair piece on Marissa Meyer; she alienated the people who developed Yahoo mail, they bolted, and the present clusterfuck is down to her management.

Yahoo mail strikes again. It keeps telling me to sign in. Fortunately I can access it through windows mail. And fortunately I use it only for family mail. But, on Christmas Eve, it's an issue.

by Anonymousreply 5712/24/2013

Every time I try to access e-mail, I get in for about a second, then a pop-up reminds me that my session has expired and I need to sign in again. Annoying. But sort of glad it's a problem *out there* and not with my computer. It'll get fixed, here, pretty soon. Still .... annoying. Stay cool, beloved DLers!!!

by Anonymousreply 5812/24/2013

Well, yee-ha-weeeeeeee! My Yahoo mail is back to acting like it should. My solution to most tech problems is to let whatever device it is *chill* for a while and then try it again. No coaxing. No trying to fix stuff I don't understand. More often than not, it works. If it doesn't, I call my techie guy. Glad I won't have to do that, since it's Christmas Eve and all.

For the last three or four months, everytime I log into my Yahoo account, I am taken to a screen that tells me to change my password; I "Skip for Now" and it takes me to another screen that asks me to add my mobile number. I "Skip For Now" and get into my inbox. How fucking annoying that I have to go through this everytime! I will change my password when I see fit, and I will NOT give Yahoo my phone number. Why is this not an option instead of a requirement? And how can I stop this so I can just go straight into my inbox?
