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.

I cannot access my email account, is yahoo mail down or is there some sort of "bug" that is prohibiting me from accessing it? Concerned about being hacked...or getting a virus.

Lydia Winklhofer · 22 hours 52 mins ago

It's working again in Firefox now. Wow, it only took, what, six bleeding days for the problem to get fixed? Well, too late now, anyway. I switched everything I still received over Yahoo to my other email account now. I just do not have the time or nerves anymore to deal with this kind of nonsense every few weeks or so (practically wasted last Saturday on it - it's really not worth the hassle).

Mary Dorrell · 1 day 9 hours 16 mins ago

Yahoo account is now working again (in Firefox). I understand that are occasional disruptions to any service... train, electricity, email etc. What I CANNOT understand is why Yahoo cannot give us information, along the lines of "The train is expected 17 minutes late on Platform3" or "Engineers are at the site of the disruption and power will be restored in two hours" It is still annoying to have the day disrupted, but at least you know WHY and can plan what to do about it. Or am I missing some INFO SITE??? But then Yahoo have their own news site. I do not understand.

Jessica Lewis · 1 day 21 hours 33 mins ago

yahoo mail sucks!!! it's completely unable. I waste countless minutes waiting for emails to load, send, delete, etc. I'm switching to gmail, i can't take this any longer!

Mike T Mullen · 2 days 53 mins ago

I've been having issues with yahoo mail for weeks. It's beyond frustrating. I've cleared the cache, cookies, etc. Makes no difference. Whatever they are doing under the hood to try to make it better is breaking what always worked and they need to stop. I'm really glad I pay for yahoo mail plus and get a service that doesn't work now.

Trevor Penner · 2 days 3 hours 14 mins ago

i have tried the past few days to access my yahoo and it just brings up maybe one page, but cant open delete or anything whats problem tried differnt browsers, and completely diffentert computers but nothing help

Mary Dorrell · 2 days 8 hours 50 mins ago

Yahoo problems remain ... is it just Firefox? Chromium seems OK (but seems to have issues with Adobe)

Larry Holmes · 2 days 10 hours 13 mins ago

Mail opens ok but cant delete since there no longer is a box to check delete. Cant read them either.

Midge Walterhouse · 2 days 15 hours 17 mins ago

Cannot send emails, toolbar is frustrated. Yahoo needs to get it together!

Jen Parker · 2 days 18 hours 55 mins ago

A week ago I discovered I couldn't open yahoo emails in firefox. Today I opened and sent emails in safari. That lasted 6 hours, now I can't open emails in safari, either.

Ron Adams · 2 days 19 hours 38 mins ago

Cannot use "new" Yahoo mail service.. option being use "old yahoo". That works but why am I paying a premium to use a faster non-premium service ?

Susann Carlson · 2 days 20 hours 2 mins ago

I can't delete emails; and my area to view emails is very small, as in I can only read one email at a time. I have problems both in Basic View and New Email view.

Angelina Glasgow Boring · 2 days 21 hours 12 mins ago

Unable to open mail or search for anything. Same as others - can view the messages but unable to open them - toolbar is not visible. I am able to access my mail from my phone, so I can at least open them there.

Jesse Casimono · 2 days 22 hours 38 mins ago

Same problem as everyone else. Running a mac in leopard.os Safari 4 would not work. Updated to Safari 5 That will work but now yahoo adds ads with your mail. You're stuck looking at ads you can't delete.

Mary Dorrell · 2 days 23 hours 12 mins ago

My emails do not open. My Folders do not open. I cannot write or send an email since Saturday, April 12, 2014.

YHM sucks since you changed the layout, services, and formats. Lag lag lag, and constantly crashing. BRING THE OLD VERSION BACK PLEASE!

Richard Job · 3 days 3 hours 46 mins ago

It keeps asking me to use a more basic format and has been doing this for two days

Cathal McManus · 3 days 6 hours 36 mins ago

Devi Ma · 3 days 15 hours 5 mins ago

I have two yahoo accounts which i can access but both accounts won't let me open to read any mail. please urgent assistance is needed for work.

Mick Palermo · 3 days 18 hours 32 mins ago

Same problems here, mostly in firefox. I have gotten an email to open in opera and give me a reply box. Try different browser.

I'm able to view and reply using opera, but it was buggy and slow intermittently.

Puja LadiJungle · 3 days 19 hours 55 mins ago

My email window opens but has no interactivity. The inbox updates, but I cannot open the mail, nor can I access the other functions on the page.

Laurie Laidlaw McIntosh · 3 days 20 hours 30 mins ago

My emails do not open. My Folders do not open. I cannot write or send an email. Much like above

Shari Larsen · 3 days 22 hours 55 mins ago

I am having the same problem, it displays emails but I cannot open them. I am getting new emails coming in though and the notifications of them, can't open those either. My buttons for "delete" etc. are missing too.

Paula Cappa · 3 days 23 hours 56 mins ago

My yahoo email message will not open since Saturday, April 12, 2014. There's some loading problem?

Ewa Maydell · 4 days 44 mins ago

in the last few days my email using Yahoo suffers erratic behaviour of both servers POP and smtp. emails sent land in my outbox, while the ones addressed to me sometime take hour or even days to reach me. My other email with works all the time, so I surmise this is not our 'rural location' and antiquated old telephone line on which our broadband crawls.

Tom Mills · 4 days 52 mins ago

Yahoo has not worked (loads but can't do anything with it) in Firefox now for the last 5 days, April, 2014, And it when it does, there are multiple issues while trying to perform different functions.

There is no customer support. Yahoo has become most unreliable and I will be seeking other options besides.

Peggy Smith · 4 days 53 mins ago

My emails are there, but everything freezes no matter how many times I refresh. This has been going on for two days now.

Steve Hughes · 4 days 16 hours 29 mins ago

I was having the same problem, so I opened IE, and Yahoo works fine in it. I mostly use Firefox.

Don Macbeth · 4 days 20 hours 16 mins ago

My email window opens but has no interactivity. The inbox updates, but I cannot open the mail, nor can I access the other functions on the page.

Mary Dorrell · 4 days 22 hours 13 mins ago

can't open email or search or do any other functions in my email as other users say. Phone app has its own problems too

Michele Ralston · 4 days 23 hours 25 mins ago

can't open email or search or do any other functions in my email

Lydia Winklhofer · 12 April 2014 - 07:58

I just realised, I didn't check the Yahoo mail at all yesterday, so the problem can already have started then, like as others report, just didn't notice.

Phyllis Webster · 12 April 2014 - 07:45

My e-mail has been frozen for 24 hours. The top bar with delete, move etc is gone so I cannot open, delete etc. The compose instruction is there but will not open. What is yahoo doing to help?

Lydia Winklhofer · 12 April 2014 - 07:04

I see that others are having the same problem. I can see them all lsted but I cannot open any of the individual emails, nor can I carry out any ther tasks such as composing an email, open folders. It's like the page is frozen. I noticed the problem today (around 2pm CET). Yesterday, everthing was still fine.

Mike Olanrewaju · 12 April 2014 - 05:14

What kind of problem is this ? I can't be able to read my email since yesterday... can yahoo do something to this problem?

Cristina Maria Dinu · 12 April 2014 - 00:29

I can get it do download the mail but for nearly 3 hours I can't open the separate messages.

Julie Thi Underhill · 12 April 2014 - 00:09

Got this when trying to access individual emails (multiple):

'There appears to be a problem loading the email "[name here]". Try Again. Error code 4'

So I can't read the emails in my in-box. I tried through Firefox and Safari -- same result. This is annoying!! I have work to do.

Jack Dunster · 12 April 2014 - 00:02

at present, it is impossible to access my mail: the advertisements are not evident either

Kevin Miller · 11 April 2014 - 20:42

Yahoo is totally screwed up. I tried for over an hour to get my inbox to show up on the screen. Then, it showed up I couldn’t open anything. I wasn’t able to get to the box on screen below the subject line to type an email then after another hour I was able to type an email but couldn’t send it and when I returned to it after a half hour or so, freaking draft wasn’t there any longer. What the hell?

Saija Korpijärvi · 11 April 2014 - 11:17

Can't access in to my account since wednesday with my Microsoft mobile.

Marie Huxtable · 11 April 2014 - 10:14

Yahoo have recently changed the security settings on their email servers which is causing major issues with mailing list services across the world, including JiscMail. When is this problem going to be sorted?

Siggysbeads · 10 April 2014 - 23:31

Some of the emails in my inbox have mysteriously disappeared. I saw new emails and was just about to read them. I clicked on one and the message window was empty, when I clicked back on inbox, the new messages had disappeared. Has anyone else had this issue?

Sara Egner · 10 April 2014 - 13:04

I have been blocked from my email all day. I did change my password last night due to the big hack yesterday. That may be part of the issue, but my phone keeps reporting that the server cannot be reached. From a desktop I can get as far as reporting an inability to access my email, and Yahoo says they will email me a fix to that. So obviously I'm not getting those if they are sending them. I can still access old messages from my phone.

Jo Sankey · 10 April 2014 - 11:56

Can no longer use BT home page to log into BT Yahoo Mail; BT advised i go to mail. hee hee got to laugh that did not work either., nothing i tried works. We all rely too much on technology, still at least they admit there is aproblem this time. AND ONLY THEY CAN FIX IT WHEN WHO KNOWS?????

Anurag Biswas · 10 April 2014 - 08:36

Huge delay in receiving emails. Also everything has become very slow...

Mandy Henley · 10 April 2014 - 06:31

Been having problems for a few days, not allowing access to emails or delete them - now can´t get in at all!!!

Debbie Krank Carr · 9 April 2014 - 16:34

My Yahoo is my homepage, but every time I try to go to it, I have to re sign in. This has been going on for a few weeks now. I was switched to the new Yahoo March 31st, whether I liked it or not, and now it won't let me go to my customized page without signing in, EVERY TIME... Please fix this...

Cindi W. Singler · 9 April 2014 - 14:42

Yahoo work/home accounts are erratic since April 7, 2014

Ilana Alix · 9 April 2014 - 10:15

Ilana Alix UK I can get into the inbox and read emails but when I try to send them it doesn't work. The whole thing is slow. It's been happening for two days now. And before it started I went into inbox and it was blank. My contacts list was empty. What is going on?

Renita D'Souza Fonseca · 9 April 2014 - 09:32

Having problems sending e-mails. Pop up window keeps popping up every few seconds saying account info is not good, and it is good. This problem has been occurring since Friday.

Donna Watson · 9 April 2014 - 08:16

Unable to send using "reply." Yahoo sucks, constant issues every single day... but it's what my bosses use for work and they won't change.

Kimberlee Halima Bach · 9 April 2014 - 06:39

Unable to send emails from Yahoo. This has been happening of and on the last few days. I am very frustrated. When will this be fixed?

Cornish Elwood · 6 April 2014 - 07:46

When I'm reading my email, a pop up ad appears on top of the right half of my email. There is no "X" to close the ad or to reduce it. It just covers up half of my email so I have to guess at what was written to me. Does anyone know how to get rid of these popups that are on top of your email? It's ridiculous. I can't even read my travel confirmation.

Jacqueline Fisher · 31 March 2014 - 17:39

I can get into my mail box but can't do anything - can't open emails, can't delete, can't send - nothing !!

Keri-leigh Cassidy · 31 March 2014 - 17:35

I can see email headings but can't open any mail. Same exact problem as Stephanie- "Will let me sign in, but the tool bar is completely missing, won't let me open any emails, or compose an email." I too have vintage yahoo.

David Ray Hill · 31 March 2014 - 17:34

Same issues as others currently reporting: no toolbar; can't compose mail, delete messages, etc.; zero functionality, even after reloading website multiple times, restarting computer. ARRGGHH!!

Chris Magadanz · 31 March 2014 - 17:15

No tools work on my Yahoo mail. Cannot delete mail. Look at mail I sent etc Attempt to put check marks in box next to e-mail and that will not work either.

Reid Sandra · 31 March 2014 - 16:43

Yaho has been down for a few hours. I cannot read mail, nor delete or move. I use Safari. Are Yahoo people doing something about it???

Stephanie Sylvester Higgins · 31 March 2014 - 16:31

Same exact problem as below. Will let me sign in, but the tool bar is completely missing, won't let me open any emails, or compose an email for work. I've tried logging in and out multiple times, even restarted my desktop. No change. I've enjoyed having a "vintage" yahoo account, but it seems as though there's more and more problems with it every day. Gmail... you may have finally won me over.

Bradford Broyles · 31 March 2014 - 16:26

Yahoo not worth a shit tonight in Vermont, can't access mail AT ALL.

Breanna Mulligan · 30 March 2014 - 17:41

Every time I try to access my email, it just says "waiting for..." I haven't been able to access it for three weeks now. Does anyone have a soloution?

Mikael Kim Brown · 26 March 2014 - 21:39

I started noticing issues about 2 weeks ago with everything getting very slow trying to read or delete emails. Now for 2 days I have not been able to get to my email at all. Sometimes the page will come up with a few headers, but then just sits and spins.

Linda Bender Honeycutt · 25 March 2014 - 08:37

Still cannot delete any emails nor can I send a reply from the inbox. I have to save the email to drafts then once I can get that open I can send the email. Much prefer the old email setup.

Jayne Cook · 25 March 2014 - 02:16

just great..I have work waiting for me in my mail and when I sign in, it says
Invalid ID or password. Please try again using your full Yahoo ID.

Prashant Omil · 24 March 2014 - 23:53

Charlie Lindell · 24 March 2014 - 10:47

Frequently unable to send and receive email from PC, and mobile device or login to the Yahoo setting page. Something is wrong and they are having unreported problems.

Nicole Chase-Coakley · 20 March 2014 - 08:06

This sucks I can't check my emails. When I'm lucky enough to see my box I can't open any of the messages. Now I can't even read any of the news articles.

Margaret Matthews · 18 March 2014 - 16:24

Here we go yet again! Can't get into my emails. "Temporary error 14". Wish Yahoo would sort themselves out, more often that not these days they have a problem. Not good enough!

Carole Currier · 11 March 2014 - 12:39

Everytime I try to forward an e-mail, the system will not let me enter an address in the TO field. It just beeps at me.

Kathy Brafford · 7 March 2014 - 18:18

Finally did Cont.F5 to try and refresh, and it finally worked, I appear to be able to see my yahoo mail

Jennifer Thorpe · 7 March 2014 - 17:59

I just got a message saying that my yahoo mail account has been de-activated because it had been inactive for a long period of time. BS!

David Crotty · 7 March 2014 - 17:48

It seems that there is a continuing problem with my Yahoo email. What is most likely needed is a change in leadership at Yahoo. The new leader should focus on reliability and not more new gadgets.

Marlene Straubel · 7 March 2014 - 17:36

I, too, cannot access my yahoo email account. It was working fine and suddenly this pm I cannot log in

Kathy Brafford · 7 March 2014 - 17:31

have been having trouble getting to yahoo mail for about 2 hrs now. I can log in and on the right hand side next to sign in, it shows your mail(although I don't think it's updated), but when you actually go to email, I get the error message about the server error

Luisa Marcela · 7 March 2014 - 17:07

I can't access my yahoo mail on my laptop, I get a blank screen, however, for those of you who need to check something urgently, I was able to access it on my cell phone

Rebecca Meneley Coucke · 7 March 2014 - 16:45

i can't even open yahoo mail, when is it going to be fixed? none of the "suggestions" you provide when it won't open don't work!

Jennifer Thorpe · 7 March 2014 - 16:37

Getting the same thing with my mail account. However, I created a new mail account to see if it was just my account blocked or something, and the new one works just fine. Must be doing something with our existing accounts.

Mathew Canfield · 7 March 2014 - 16:21

I've tried three different web browsers and all coming up with a blank screen. I logged off and then logged back on same thing blank screen.

Dave Gaustad · 7 March 2014 - 15:29

Now I can't rent Hunger Games Catching Fire with the free redbox code I saw earlier today in my mail as yahoo mail is down. You get what you pay for I guess but with the terrible interface and forced ads and not even working....

Kris Radish · 7 March 2014 - 15:25

can't get into my mail either... hello yahoo??? problems on and off just about always... time to move on?

Sudheer Shukla · 7 March 2014 - 13:53

I haven't been able to view or delete e-mails today. I also can't see e-mails beyond the first page (roughly 50 e-mails). I can't send e-mails either. It's simply not responding to anything I do once I get to my list of e-mails.

Tanya Andrews Simpson · 7 March 2014 - 10:39

For months, service is terribly intermittent... constantly have to log out, close and reopen to get mail to populate or to compose anything. Service is absolutely horrendous.

Susan Johnston · 7 March 2014 - 06:40

won't take me from my homepage to mail page. Also having trouble reaching home page on occasion - ready to change to different home page and mail service.

Wittmann Kou · 6 March 2014 - 15:15

My email 90% of my business email history are missing! Fxxx yohoo! Piss me off, this is not the first time. Pay the "F"ing service fee got "F"ING SHIT!

Teresa Bippen · 6 March 2014 - 12:32

It has been a mess the last two days. I cannot send any emails with an attchment and am using another email service. It continually locks up and I have to keep closing and reopening it about every 20-30 minutes. Now, it ahs technical difficulties and won't open at all. System has sucked ever since the change, is very slow and inefficient with so many features deleted.

Wende Allen · 5 March 2014 - 22:25

Have had messed up yahoo for 3 days. We use this for business. Please fix so we can continue with what we love. It has been a nightmare the past few days:(

Wen T Yen · 5 March 2014 - 20:36

Evelyn Henninger · 5 March 2014 - 15:57

I have had the same log on for over 10 years and it is telling me it does not recognize my sign on... What is happening/

Cindy Lou · 5 March 2014 - 13:54

Have not been able to send messages all day! Keep getting an error message saying "error accessing your mailbox" try again in 10 minutes. I even tried to send them a report on their customer care page and that won't go thru either. Also get an error message from Yahoo on that which says: 1017: Sorry, there was an error on our end. Please try again later.

Dwight Rossee · 5 March 2014 - 13:28

What is going on with Yahoo Mail? It has been unbelievable messed up for several weeks now. New (bad) surprises every day now. It is like they no longer wish to have me use their service.

Suanne Melville · 5 March 2014 - 13:09

it said there was risky behaviour on my mail and so they have locked my mail but when I was redirected to change my password it wont let me enter the correct passwords, a problem keeps popping up, but ridiculous ones that say the password entries don't match, but there is only one open box for current password and one for new password. I entered both passwords with 7 characters then it tells me the password needs to be more than 6 characters! which then makes no sense as it is more than 6! please help need to get on tonight!
