Yahoo Mail Problems?

Is anyone else having problems with Yahoo Mail? A little while ago, I tired to get in and it wouldn't take my password. I hit the Forgot Password? button, successfully jumped through the security questions hoops, and reset the password but, when I tried to enter the new password, no joy. Jumped through the hoops again; still no joy.

Maybe linked who knows.

I hit their Help button and saw a notice that some users have been unable to log in and that their Engineering Team is working on it. So, it looks like hurry up and wait.

My neighbor has Yahoo and had problems logging in to his account. He entered his e-mail address and the password comes up automatically in black dots, hits enter and rejects the attempt, claiming the password didn't match. But then entered it manually and it opened.

But he said he couldn't access his account for a few days, so? Maybe they changed something behind the scenes?

Or they just had overload on their servers and could only take so many people online at one time and excluded anymore people online until the numbers dropped?

Like an overloaded circuit the fuse gets hot and automatically shuts down the service temporally?

Now I have to figure out how to "create an association in default programs control panel to be able to attach documents to my Outlook e-mails and or respond to a e-mail link.

Well, whatever the problem was, it seems to be fixed now. Thanks for all the responses.

Btw, considering how Marissa Mayer has all but destroyed Yahoo, does anyone have any suggestions for a web based email client I can use should Yahoo bite the dust for keeps? I can't use Gmail (I don't trust Google) and I can't use anything from MS since the north end of southbound horses insist that I enable all cookies, not just theirs (that will never happen as long as I draw breath; besides, I no longer trust MS, either).

Personally I have several webmail accounts for various reasons - one of those is for entirely personal use and doesn't get used to sign up to any websites or post anything anywhere on the internet.

Anyway you could take a look at GMX email. What I like is it's "mail collector" feature that allows you to import mail from other accounts. Also when replying to an email message you can specify the sender's address as any of those that you own.

See are circled in red in screenshot:

It has both IMAP and POP3 support and a few other features including password protected file storage and sharing.

I strongly recommend Mail.com
https://www.mail.com/
I dropped Yahoo after 15 years because of all the problems. I've yet to regret this choice
Bonus: It's based in Germany which has great email privacy rules.

Thunderbird 24.0.1 - Import Yahoo Mail Folders, Contacts & Yahoo Mail
The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open. Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to...
