Yahoo mail outage!?
« on: December 11, 2013, 08:09:46 AM »

Anyone else hit by the Yahoo Mail outage?

I know, my machine is a bit ornery, but a simple check of the web says it's "not me" - something evil pulverized Yahoo Mail's servers for over a day. It's hit and miss - people are reporting one account up, one down. (Which I agree with). Someone posted a tentative ETA of 1pm today to have it fixed... but a two day outage, and there's surprisingly little screaming via the main news for this! (At least a ...uh... yahoo search didn't pull many relevant hits!)

After reading your message, I checked my Yahoo accounts.  I had no trouble reading mail, both old mail and mail that had arrived today.

Sure, that's the randomness bit. Some people are fine, but we're starting into day 3, so someone will be unhappy over there at Yahoo!  :o

Usually I'm on the losing end of random.  ;)  Anyway, I hope your accounts are back up soon.

Here's the redux after it's mostly all over.

Yahoo finally quit being silent without admitting what FUBAR'ed them:

http://help.yahoo.co...n_US&id=SLN22473

From a CNN article:
"CEO Marissa Mayer made revamping e-mail a part of her effort to kickstart a Web company that, in the eyes of many, had grown stale and was bleeding money."

Not sure I wholly like the design, but since I use the company for nothing else, not a bad place to start. (Plus a few non-Google searches.)

So it seems back now, but a 3.5 day outage is pretty bad...

It was just them hooking the NSA into your e-mail. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
