I'm sorry about the email issue. Is there any error or message when accessing your yahoo email at the website?

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, 10, or mac computer?
Can we do a remote support session, so I can troubleshoot the issue directly on your computer together with you?

I use my iPhone. there has been no message error. I generally get multiple emails a day (from various department stores, groupon, etc) and I have not gotten many in six hours. I contacted yahoo via email and they replied that there were no problems

Thank you. Besides the iPhone, do you also have a Windows or Mac computer?

- Can you please test going to the website, then there, select the Mail option, then sign in your yahoo email address there. Then do you receive new email messages there?
