slow yahoo mail issue

Yahoo mail is among the top email service providers in the world. It has millions of users located in different parts of the world. The user-friendly interface and functionality make its preferred choice of many users. It is widely used at both the professional and personal level. However, users sometimes experience a variety of issues with their Yahoo mail account like the sign-in issue, password reset, hacking and many others. One of the issues which really annoy users is that sometimes emails don’t respond or are extremely slow in Yahoo. Things become more frustrating if you need to access your email urgently. While there can be different reasons from slow network to technical issues at Yahoo’s end, you can try the following tips and tricks to troubleshoot the problem by yourself.

  1. First, make sure that the problem is not due to your network. Check if your internet connection is fast enough to load mail.
  2. Make sure you are using the latest web browser. Look for updates (if available) in your web browser.

  1. I am not concerned with mail (have separate server) I’m concerned with Yahoo itself. Yahoo is my home page. It has always worked satisfactorily the majority of the time. Only recently since the change to Verizon have I noticed that it takes forever to load the page. I’ve cleared my cache. Am not going to disconnect firewall and antivirus. That’s just asking for trouble.

  2. Hello,

    The Yahoo on Android is working so so but the Web mail is UNUSABLE!

    I simply click on [Settings] on Web mail and it hang!
    I simply click on [Emoji] during Web mail compose and it hang!
    In fact, it hang just about on any action!

    I have already gone through your ” tips and tricks to troubleshoot the problem” myself for many weeks. It’s not the firewall, the network, the browser, etc…. it’s Yahoo Web mail!

    Can you please find out what’s going on and fix the damn problem? Its not the first time either!

  3. yahoo email starts ok, but slows and stalls after about 5-10 minutes.
    cannot scroll through email
    cannot continue writing an email
    yahoo mail eventually causes browsers to crash
    behaves the same regardless if I’m using firefox, or chrome.

  4. yes yahoo email is unusable. says no internet connection, cannot send , cannot receive, cannot logon….it really sucks!

    • I have the same problem with loading Pages slow, clicking on an email and it brings up the wrong one, many problems with it just being slow. I do not have this problem with Gmail. I may be canceling out my Yahoo account and going to Gmail. This is just too stressful. Half the time the calendar does not work either.

  5. i am unable to read mails..i got notification but some mails are not available in my yahoo_mail – Yahoo mail “Temporary Error” loading pages

  6. It seems to go in and out almost on a daily basis. One day it loads ok… the next it bogs down – almost impossible to compose an e-mail – impossible to copy any written information – impossible to scroll down – and downright impossible to use. It’s irritating the crap out of me. I swear, if I could move the files I have saved on Yahoo to G-Mail I’d do it in a heartbeat!

  7. It’s very frustrating! The only way I can use Yahoo Mail is by switching to the Basic Email, which doesn’t have all the features I use. I suppose you’re not planning on fixing the problem, (which, to me, seems that it’s loading all kinds of ads in the background!) so as soon as possible I’m moving over to gmail. Sad, really…I’ve been with Yahoo for over 20 years now.

  8. On the same Firefox browser and at the same time, my Google emails load instantly, but Yahoo email loading is really slow.

  9. I am using iPhone 10 to access my e-mails. I am finding Yahoo Mail very slow and sluggish to respond. Never been like this before. I am using BT hub.

  10. Since i clicked on try new mail

    It wont load.

    I have cleared and done everything i should.

    I want old mail back

  11. WHAT is going on? It’s been going on for weeks now. Are you trying to get people to give up and move to gmail? Half the time the site freezes and I get a We’re working on it and we’ll be right back prompt from you. Other times it’s incredibly slow. And then it will be fine.

  12. I have done all that was suggested to speed up my Yahoo email……to no avail. It is beyond slow…………………gmail is screaming fast. I started with Yahoo way back more than 22 years ago!! and am just fed up and angry.

  13. My emails have become very slow and not been able to attach any attachments from last 15 days. and unable to send any emails since failing to attach. very disappointing. will i get assisted or should I switch to gmail account???????

  14. I was so frustrated and angry! Using Yahoo for the last 15 years, is my main email address. In the last weeks using it in a browser is useless: slow loading, freezing and so on. The Yahoo app I’m using on Android start doing the same in the last 2 weeks (after an update they send). I moved away from their app to Google Mail app on Android and to Windows Mail on my PC. Both apps seems to sync just fine so I can work again on my emails. Hey Yahoo, you have one less customer for your adds!

  15. Yahoo Mail has been too slow for more than 5 years. Not just my service or cache. i came here to see how many others have the same issue. How to solve it? switch over or mograte to Gmail seems the best route. Gmail, I kind of left because I received every notification possible. It was avalanching my inbox. I have to learn to set the Auto Sort file to folder to reduce the inbox volume.

  16. I’m going to retire Yahoo from my computer, it has been running slow on everything you click on for years now and it’s not getting any better so Good By Yahoo and good luck…

  17. fuck yahoo it nothing but a fucking problem, and headache. slow slow slow to fucking old to be used my anyone. I have never sat and waited for an email to load up, it took it 10 minutes and another 10 minutes to see what the email was all about. I went through all the steps and still slow like molasses in December, in the south pole what is wrong with your program. fix it.

  18. Having difficulty with ONLY my Yahoo mail…spins and goes nowhere…it’s not the computer obviously because everything else works, cleaned out everything thinking it would work faster but NOPE. Any other suggestions???

  19. Why is Yahoo terrible? It’s not a computer thing. I’ve gone through the checklist (clearing coockies, cache, etc) and it’s still a problem. It also doesn’t happen at other websites.

    It’s anything Yahoo related, minus their financial page.

    When are you going to stop being behind everyone else? Fixing things helps a company out.

    • Also, it’s very slow on any tablet or phone. For once, it’s not user error.

  20. Now yahoo mail is actually shot , doesn’t load , doesn’t delete emails , Time to move to a different mail , shame as I’ve had yahoo for 20 plus yrs

  21. Stopped working , shit service, I use by mobile , not what I need now , slow and old
    And now you want to verify me email , fucking joke
