Yahoo Mail Outage: Is It Down For You?

Free e-mail systems are as popular as ever with Google Mail, Hotmail and of course Yahoo mail however it would seem that Sony aren’t the only ones featuring network issues as many people have been complaining about the Yahoo Mail service and both are down for different reasons.

We first learned of the difficulties being faced with Yahoo mail over on CNet news where Jay Greene has added a report saying that the network that boasts over 250 million users worldwide hasn’t been working for ‘MOST’ of them today, this could be some kind of outage but we want to know if the Yahoo Mail service is down for you today?

A statement has been released by Yahoo and they have said that “Yahoo Mail is currently inaccessible to some users” and that they are “working to correct the issue and restore all functionality immediately. We know that this may have caused some inconvenience and we apologize to our users who might be affected.”

There’s also a nice article over at ZDNet by Larry Dignan where he talks about the outrage that’s hit Twitter about the service being down amongst a few other networks that have recently been having problems. Included in the report is Verizon’s LTE network, Sony’s PSN and the Amazon Web Service. He also includes the ComScore results that tell us that Yahoo mail is still very widely used contrary to what many people may think.
