Can't Access Yahoo Mail - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as,,

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Jonathan Blake · 7 October 2015 - 04:16
· · Chrome 45.0 on Mac

I've been without my business email for 8 straight days. For me the problem is with email forwarding. The email that is linked to my domain name gets forwarded to a email. That email works, so the customer service people tell me its passed their tests and is working. But it is useless because anyone sending me an email to the domain is getting it returned. I never see it in the Yahoo mail becuase it is not being forwarded. 8 Days! What's worse, I now realize all those hundreds of emails that get returned will never show up in my inbox, even if Yahoo ever fixes the problem. It is beyond outrageous.
The Yahoo reps I finally got through to after interminable wait times have misled, lied or are just ignorant of what the problem is. Impossible to get help. I am starting over with another provider to host my domain.

have same problem except think I figured it out. If you are using a separate domain (not, but something like this I believe their 'upgrage' last week broke all the DNS server and MX settings for business accounts. try sending an email to the original yahoo address that is the yahoo account. I can receive mail to the original root address, but not my personal domain (which is administered by a Y partner out of austrailia). I plan to figure out how to point email sent to the personal/business domain to a new provider (gmail, small business account) and say goodbye FOREVER to Y!

I'm very close to jumping off the Yahoo ship. You get so frustrated with their automated help because it tells you everything is fine, and when you go to the contacts tab on the help page it takes you to FB customer care where I found an 800 number to call and got scammed. When I was younger I wouldn't have been that desperate. I'm trying to clean up from this mess. Personally, I believe Yahoo has been hacked and the hackers are trying to profit from it, but you'll never hear that from Yahoo.
