Yahoo Mail suffers daylong outage

It’s been a month of outages, and it’s time to add one more to the list. Yahoo Mail users are reporting on Twitter that the service has been down all day. Yahoo Mail has about 284 million users.

Yahoo confirmed that there is an outage and that the company is working to fix it.

Yahoo Mail is currently inaccessible to some users. We are working to correct the issue and restore all functionality immediately.Thu Apr 28 17:18:03 via web

Some users say they’ve found a workaround by going to the service’s mobile site, m.yahoo.com, though others have reported that it isn’t working for them.

For those having trouble getting to Yahoo Mail, go to the mobile site (m.yahoo.com), use the mail link at the upper right. Got me in. #ymailThu Apr 28 19:58:29 via Echofon

The Next Web reported that some users believe the outage is related to the Yahoo! Mail Beta rollout, though reports have conflicted on that point. Some beta users have been able to access the service, while others not in the beta have been blocked, the report said.

Yahoo did not immediately return a request for comment.
