I have not been able to get around my Yahoo Mail in box. I keep getting sent out to reload my password. I've never seen this error before. It says I'm timed out. Is Yahoo on the fritz? Are any other MyLotters experiencing this? Or do you think it's just me? Also, if it IS just me... then what can I do to check my email? I've tried it on two computers now...

Usually when I have connectivity issues I turn off my modem, unplug my router and then let it set about a minute. I then go back and turn it back on, plug back in and restart the computer and it frequently fixes the problem. I think I had that message one time today.

I had thought about that... I haven't actually done it yet. I bet that might work! :*) Thanks!

I have not had any problem with it. I have used it on and off all day. I would contact Yahoo help. Maybe they could fix it for you.

I did have to log in, I haven't had to do that in forever. I almost forgot my password but I dug into the rolodex of my mind and pulled out the right one. I've had it go down on me before but it usually comes back after a while. It only seems to happen when I really need to do something though, what's up with that!

I have used Yahoo for ages and have little problem but when I do I REALLY do. I think they get very busy certain times of the day and you can't do much, if anything, during those times. Sometimes it is hard to tell whether it is your computer or Yahoo. I was online at that time (four hours ago) and didn't have a problem with Yahoo at that time.

Hello my friend Bearballew Ji, Well, I did this morning, and I do at least 3-4 times daily to check my mail, even yesterday , I did chat as well, but I find everything in perfect order. I think you may write from other mail ID to Yahoo and tehy will do teh needful at once. Take care. May God bless You and have a great time.

I was last night and this morning, but then I figured out that it was my connection and I just disconnected the internet and hooked it back up again and then my internet was okay.

I never experience such before but it is possible that your mail experiences some bug now, I had one before though but it is not that worsse... I fix it before i lost my patience... in your case you can contact yahoo for help, that is the best solution maybe. As yahoo is very oriented to customers need or queriesk, that I know base on my experience... you know, taking yahoo survery too can help them improve some bugs on the systems, that one of the best ways for them to be informed about our experiences on using yahoo! Or what are you currently using today, I mean the feature, is it the new yahoo or the classic one? perhaps if you experience problem on the new version then you can choose the yahoo classic, perhpas it would worki for you. I hope I did give a little help, good luck!

I have not had faced any problem ..with my yahoomail.. i think you have problem with your connectivity so please check your connection properly.. and if this is okay... then i think it's problem of serve of your service provider..because sometimes server are too busy.. so this problem may happen with you..

Yahoo was not letting me open emails for over 4 hours today. It is Yahoo not the computers. I tried on 3 we have. It is working now.

do you have cashgo[her installed on your system. I think thats whats causing the problem. Try using IE to load yahoo.

I had this problem a few minutes ago. I tried and tried to login to yahoo mail but it shows an error. I just tried again but it still couldnt get through. So I thought of changing browsers. When I opened my Firefox and used that to access my ymail, I got through, thankfully. However, it took a long while for me to send a message. It must be that Yahoo maintenance thing or something. Hope it works for you now.^_^

I use yahoo mail myself and I've not had any problems with it for a long time. Have you installed any kind of software at all? Sometimes this can cause problems, not always. I don't want to discredit cash gopher at all but I was using that program. After I installed this program on my computer I started experiencing problems with yahoo and so I'm wondering whether you have been using this program yourself. I uninstalled the program and yahoo mail was fine again. Some people have been experiencing different problems in relation to cash gopher. Anyway, good luck. Andrew

I didn't have any issues with it. I agree with the others. Contact Yahoo. Maybe it's something particular to a few accounts. Good luck!

It might be happening due to server error or due to browser data conflict. You may try clearing your cache, deleting your cookies, disabling any addons etc. If you continue to get errors then you should contact Yahoo Support team. They might be able to help you out. I don't really use yahoo mail as they block many of the important mails so I switched over to Gmail. And in my past several years of experience I never faced any problem. You may also give it a try.
