    It would be worth speaking with someone you have in your contacts list to see if they have had any odd messages from you recently, of the sort "I am stuck in Dheli without any money". If they have your account has been hacked and you will have to contact the help desk. It happened to me a year or so ago.

    I have had trouble, they said change password then tried to log in later and got a message that I had attempted too many times and locked out for 15 mins. Been messing about for 2 days now

    Can't say I have a problem with their mail server (it's not my main email supplier anyway) but for many years have used Yahoo as my home page. I just hate the recently updated version so am searching around for an alternative. I'd tell them so if I could find a way.

    For some weeks now I have had problems with Yahoo via Internet Explorer including my e-mail.I have to access via Google Chrome instead.

    hi scally i had the same problem even had the server take over my PC and they could not access my mail contacted both BT and YAHOO customer services still no help by this time it had been going on for weeks and i have a lot of important stuff connected to my yahoo email account which i needed to deal with went into various forum looking for help found loads of people with same or similar problem but no solution so i decided if there is a fix i am going to find it myself.. so after trying a number of things i decided that cookies may be the proble so i went into settings then privacy and security then cookies and site data then to all cookies clicked on remove all cookies then went back to yahoo home page clicked mail and up came a different entree bar to normal asking for email address then password then SIGN IN and guess what WALLAH i am in!!!!!!! and i have to do that procedure every time i i need to go into yahoo mail. so delete all cookies or all history including cookies and hopefully you will be in. the trouble lies with the devorce between BT and google once again BT have over streched themselves it would seem. i am slowly transferring a lot of stuff to gmail. anyway good luck. jt.

    Wouldn't touch Yahoo with a barge pole! I had my Yahoo account hacked and had loads of trouble with them.
    I use Gmail now and have never had any trouble with them.

    I've had numerous problems since BT updated their system, unable to log in etc. Strangely, since I started to access mail account via Thunderbird, haven't had any issues, doesn't make sense
