Anyone else having problems with Yahoo Mail this evening ? Alternating message between "Try again later" and "We are over-capacity" A bit of an arseburgher to say the least!

I've not been happy with Yahoo mail for a while now, not sure why they have changed it. The other day I wanted to send a link to a website vie email, didn't want to say anything in the email, just send the link. It wouldnt let me send it stating there was a problem and that I had to put some words in the email.
I went old school and sent it via AOL instead.
Not Happy with yahoo at all frown

I would assume yahoo has looked at its own security and plugged that hole.

You will be fine.
The links are there to verify who you are and help you change your password. Yahoo is only one of a string of big organisations that have been hacked.

Its not fun but its the world we live in cyber crime.

Hope that helps.


this is from the other day about yahoo playing up smile
