I can't access yahoo at all. Looks like their server may be down?

Yahoo doesn't load. Gives an error saying either I'm not connected to internet, site address is wrong, or host server is down.

Ditto, Laura. Every Yahoo page -- mail and otherwise -- brings exactly the same result.

Looks like they've changed the homepage to http://m.www.yahoo.com/
Don't really care for the new layout. Looks like an msn.com copy-cat.

Would've been nice to get a warning that they were going under maintenance.

Hi All,

At the recommendation of another site, I unplugged my router for a minute, and then plugged it back in. Problem solved, though why I'll never know! Strange that it only affected Yahoo.

Try logging in at wap.oa.yahoo.com and choosing Mail

If it's accepted, then clear your cookies and cache in your web browser. That's the number one cause of this problem.
IE6: From the Menu Bar, do Tools | Internet Options | You land in the General Tab of a new pop-out small window titled Internet Options. Click on Delete Cookies and confirm, then Delete Temporary Internet Files and confirm. When completed, close the Internet Options window.

Firefox: From the Menu Bar, do Tools | Clear Private Data. Make sure only the Cookies, Cache and Authenticated Sessions tick boxes are checked, then proceed to clear those.

do you have the problem after clearing your cookies and cache/temporary internet files?
Yes or No.

If yes, does the problem occur when using another computer?
Yes or No.

If no, you have a problem within your computer's software, something Yahoo can't be remotely considered responsible for.

Many ISPs had a DNS problem which caused this problem not caused by Yahoo. Consider changing to OpenDNS which is free, fast and reliable; OpenDNS.com

Can we start a "we hate Yahoo 9.0 club"? I have been having the same problems, plus it's preventing my other applications access to the web. This is a terrible product and customer service and tech support has been very negligent.

Mr. Felix, if it is an ISP DNS problem that is not caused by Yahoo, then why did we all get this problem when we loaded Yahoo 9.0? Don't like being shrugged off.

I thought it was just my work computer (possibly that they blocked yahoo) then I came home and ran into the same problem. I googled yahoo.com and I can get to the main sight... but everytime I try to head straight to yahoo.com it doesn't come up.

Last month, I had the same problem. I used Google to go to the site. After I logged in, it didn't show I was logged in. It happened to everyone. They were probably having server problems. It could've been a major glitch. Looks like they fixed the glitch the day after it happened.

Once Yahoo! Goes under maintenance, we can't:

-check our email
-post comments
-ask or answer
-use ANY part of the website (I think Yahooligans-now Yahoo! Kids [which I don't use anymore-was probably the only Yahoo! service that worked during Yahoo's maintenance)

DO ANYTHING!!! Since Yahoo! does too much maintenance, it would be good time to switch to Google, AOL or MSN.

And another thing. Yahoo! has glitches all the time. When one glitch gets fixed, another one happens. It's an endless cycle. Sounds like some people are leaving Yahoo.
