Yahoo Mail service down for some users

Posted by iwgcr

On Thursday September 5th 2013, Yahoo Mail service went down for some users. Yahoo Customer Care’s Twitter account confirmed the problem began as early as 6:30 AM PDT on Thursday, with several sites that monitor the status of Web services also reporting outages. Yahoo representatives had not returned requests for comment by press time.

It’s unclear how many users were affected by the outage; unlike Google and Microsoft, Yahoo doesn’t provide a services dashboard to update users on problems. Instead, sites like DownDetector and DownRightNow track tweets and complaints to gauge the severity of the outage.
