Yahoo Mail Is Down In The UK: Reports

Yahoo Mail is out again in the UK, allegedly due to issues at broadband supplier BT.

Complaints to downdetector near noon GMT on Tuesday, according to the Union Journal. BT supports the Yahoo email service.

This is the second episode involving Yahoo Mail this month. The service also suffered outages in the UK on Jan. 8, and blamed them on an ISP.

Tuesday's failure mostly affected log-in capability, with 83% of complaints to downdetector citing that issue. Another 10% complained of inability to receive or send emails, and 5% say they can’t read emails.

About 50% of affected BT users are also have net problems, although BT claims that all issues are with the email system, the Union Journal reports. 

Beleaguered users made the usual comments on downdetector.

“Sky (yahoo) mail down again, it's almost like they don't want you to use it anymore....”

“Yahoo email still not working correctly of PC but works OK off Android. How Come?”

“No email...at all.”
