Having Yahoo Mail problems today? Hotmail has real big problems of a different nature, but also at Yahoo, AOL or Gmail there are many things that can go wrong. You might experience a temporary server downtime, have filters installed or your browser may be having trouble. Your e-mail forwarding could also be disabled accidentally. Let’s look at these and other points one-by-one that are specially Yahoo related.
1. Browser's cache (cookies)
2. Yahoo server issues
3. Check filters
Yahoo Mail offers a feature that sorts all messages automatically when they arrive. It is useful, but it is possible to set up a filter that might not capture the emails you don’t want. Be sure to go through all your folders and check the Filters section of your Yahoo Mail settings before you do. This will help you identify and correct any problems with your rules. You can also use your filters to narrow down your search. This will allow you to see which folders are being used.
4. Check spamboxes
5. Block Lists
Check your blocked address list. It is possible that you have blocked an address in order to prevent you from receiving email from this recipient. To check for blocked email addresses, go to Settings >> Security & Privacy.
6. Reply to address
You can check your “Reply To” addresses. Yahoo Mail allows users to set up an email address to which their recipients can respond. To prevent your replies from being sent to your Yahoo Mail inbox, you can create one. Check the Mailboxes section of your settings to ensure that your messages get delivered where they are intended. You might have received your mail to the Reply address, instead.
7. Other platform
8. Manual testing
Send an email to your self. Your Yahoo Mail account may not be accessible. This does not necessarily mean that the service has stopped working. You can check if the delivery system is working by sending an email to your Yahoo Mail address. If something is not right on the platform, you may receive an error message. This code can help you understand the situation.
9. Sign in - Sign out
Sign out and then sign back in. Your connection to your Yahoo Mail account could be lost if you use the Yahoo App Android or Yahoo Mail mobile app for iPhone. Logging in and out is a good way to reestablish your connection. This technique is still useful even if you have regular ADSL access to Yahoo!
