My Yahoo! Down

Anyone else having trouble accessing My Yahoo!? I was able to get to the main Yahoo site, but even trying from there gets me nothing. It could be undergoing some kind of unscheduled maintenance or restructuring but, unless I missed something, I didn't hear anything about it.

Still appears to be down.

I cleared the cache completely, as well as the history, then changed my password. I then tried logging in using Facebook and was told my Yahoo account is already connected via Facebook.

Nothing I've done has allowed me to access My Yahoo! since yesterday. Although it says I am signed-in.

This all started after I connected my Facebook account with Yahoo! so I could receive notifications through my Yahoo page.

Mine has been down since 10/20. I have emailed tech support and received the following email:

Hopefully they will get it resolved. It sure is aggravating since I used it daily.

Thanks! At least I know it isn't just me and the 20th is about the same time it started on this end.

iGoogle just doesn't cut it.

I can still access Groups and Mail via the homepage, but still can't access My Yahoo! I even tried a different computer without luck.

I wonder if this is regional?

Pat Mathis said...

Back up this morning.

Thanks Yahoo!!!

Manodogs said...

That's the thing about stuff like this: I already changed everything about my setup while troubleshooting.

Glad to see it back up and going, but I started liking iGoogle even though it didn't serve my purposes as well. I'm going to include it on my Toolbar now as a daily check-in.

Now I'm getting a 404 message. It was working just fine up until a few minutes ago.
