Yahoo Mail Archive
It seems that Yahoo Mail is currently down and/or not functioning properly. I haven’t been able to get into my account for about 15 minutes as of the time of this post. The issues appear to have started about 30 minutes ago. Yahoo is flat in early morning trading.
There are lots of people on Twitter who have also had issues accessing the mail service.
Update 11:05AM – I am also now seeing the following error message: internal error – server connection terminated
Some of the time I attempt to load Yahoo Mail, I receive the following error message, while other times, it is just a simple “Connection Timed Out” message.
We’re experiencing some technical difficulties…
We’re sorry, but Yahoo! Mail can’t load due to a temporary error. You can try back again shortly, or visit our help pages for ways to troubleshoot the issue.

Temporary error: 14
As always, please report in if Yahoo Mail is down for you – include your location as well.
I am a happy Yahoo Mail user. I’ve been a Yahoo Mail user since the early days. I also know that I am a bad tech blogger and early adopter because I don’t use (and make love to) Gmail. I regularly get noogies at tech conferences when others learn about my choice.
Lately I’ve noticed issues with email delivery to my Yahoo Mail account. Sometimes emails are delivered on time, but many are delivered late. And the delayed delivery seems to vary – I can’t put my finger on it. Even the exact same email can be delivered in real-time on one test but another test takes half a day to arrive. At first I thought it was only emails coming from Rackspace servers as they noted there was an issue a couple of weeks ago with mail delivery. But this past week, the delayed email delivery seems to be coming from all sides.
One interesting note – mail that gets forwarded from my gMail account always seems to come immediately. The same message sent directly to my Yahoo Mail account sometimes is delayed.
Yesterday it caused an issue as newer emails showed up before the previous emails which made for a very odd exchange with a client.
Do you use Yahoo Mail? If so, have you noticed any delivery delays over the past few weeks?
