Yahoo Mail is down with server failure

March 2, 2015 is not a good day for those trying to access their Yahoo Mail; complaints are coming from users over on Twitter saying that that Yahoo Mail is down with server failure.

Yahoo Customer Care @YahooCare has not tweeted nothing about Yahoo Mail being down today on its main tweets page, and even in the ‘Tweets & Replies’ section there seems to be nothing substantial to say there is a ‘mail server failure’.

One Twitter users said they are angry because Yahoo Mail has too many problems, another said “How many times will Yahoo Mail go down this month?” Most of the issues surrounds getting emails on desktops, receiving them on mobile devices seem to be ok for now.

Is anyone else getting Yahoo ‘Mail Server Failure’?

    Yahoo mail has been mostly down for me all day today. Very disappointing and frustrating that there is no direct information from Yahoo Support on issues, status, ETA for resolution etc.

  • Lee Powell

    Indiana. I can get on my email account but on the very same desktop my wife is getting the f4004 error when she trys to get on her Yahoo mail. We live near Fort Wayne and Frontier is our ISP. Her laptop seams to be okay. Did Yahoo hire some guys from Syria or Iraq? Yahoo better get this straight soon or we will go to Google or Hotmail.

  • jeffrub

    Now some mail is coming through with no content. Then it won’t connect to yahoo. Now server error message pops up again. This has been an all day issue that is really annoying. I hope that they get it fixed soon, or at least post something that acknowledges that they are even having a problem and working on the resolution.

  • Ella Young

    Haven’t been able to receive mail on my phone, my lap top, or my desk top. It’s one thing to have a problem, but it’s entirely another to pretend the problem doesn’t exist. Get your act together Yahoo, or you’re going to lose a lot of users to a competent mail program.
