Yahoo says it is working around the clock to fix the mail outage

Yahoo has been facing some serious issues over the last few weeks with its email service called Yahoo Mail. Some users of Yahoo Mail have been unable to log into their email accounts for several days. Yahoo is blaming the outage on complicated hardware issues that have proven more difficult to fix than expected.

Yahoo Mail has been down globally for some users with Yahoo executives saying "thousands" of users are unable to log in. Yahoo also says that it is working around the clock to fix the issues. Yahoo has also acknowledged that it has been having issues clearing emails sent between November 25 and December 9.

The web giant expects that most of those emails will be cleared by today sometime. "We have hundreds of millions of messages to deliver," Jeff Bonforte, Yahoo Mail chief, told one customer via Twitter reports PCPro. "Customers will see varied delivery times for [a] number of hours."

Yahoo says that it has been able to deliver only about 1/3 of the messages sent during the outage. The massive outage comes only a few weeks after Yahoo tried to migrate all of its employees to Yahoo Mail.
