    Has anyone else who uses Yahoo Mail been having problems lately? The performance has really deteriorated over the past few months, to the point where today, it's completely dysfunctional (apparently the server is down).

    I've had a yahoo mail account for personal use since they first started offering mail - but am not a happy user.

    I can't access my account via my iPhone either - I get a "the connection to the server failed" message.

    I also tried accessing web-based yahoo mail via Safari instead of FF - same problem.

    Me =/= Happy With Yahoo

    i haven't ever had a functionality problem with yahoo mail.

    are you sure the problem isn't in your own machine? sometimes when the history and temporary internet files cache get overloaded the connection will bog down.

    wanna talk about spam and yahoo giving away contact info to spammers, we can bitch a bunch.

    Been a while since I visited it. The amount of spam it attracts is incredible

    I've used Yahoo Mail Plus for about 8-9 months now. Yes, I paid to upgrade ... to keep out all the spam. I have noticed issues with their servers. At times I can't open my contact list and my mail can be slow to open.

    your post makes me ask both of you who are having trouble if you are using a slow dial connection or broadband. what you describe sounds like it could be the connection itself rather than yahoo's servers.

    tommywho70x has been my member name at yahoo for most of the past decade and i've never had significant problems with their servers. i have had trouble like you describe over a dial-in connection.

    AT&T uses Yahoo for IP email accounts. I don't like it myself - but it's better than AOL. I'd like to try Thunderbird but it seems to get blocked every time I try to download it. On the face, it seems Thunderbird would be more user friendly.
