Numbers of Yahoo mail problems are rising despite Yahoo’s effort to give a good user experience. We will walk you through some common Yahoo mail problems and solutions to them.
Yahoo Mail Login Problems

You get this alert when you are logging to Yahoo Email account. This error message means you are entering an incorrect username. Re-enter your username correctly.
Invalid Password. Please Try Again
This error message means you entered incorrect Yahoo Mail Login password.
- If you are sure you’ve entered the right password and still not being able to log in, then check ‘Caps lock’ and ‘Num Lock’. Turn both of them off, if you have to enter capital letters use ‘Shift Key’.
- If the problem persists, reset Yahoo Mail password and sign in with a new password.
“Account Locked” Messages
If your account is signed in from unknown device or location or there are too many sign-in attempts, then your account will be temporarily locked. This lock will be lifted after 12 hours, but you can immediately gain access to Yahoo mail with the sign in helper.

- Instead of directly logging into Yahoo Mail, sign in to Yahoo home page, sign in there and navigate to Yahoo Mail.
- If the problem continues, try steps as mentioned as earlier in other browsers.
Too Much Spam in Yahoo Mail
Though Yahoo Mail has spam filters, many spam emails pass through it. These junk emails clutter your inbox and many time they come with viruses so follow these steps to avoid spam emails.
- Click on ‘More’ (right beside archive) option in your Yahoo inbox and select ‘Spam’ for the junk emails, so that Yahoo will filter such messages in future.
- If you are getting regular emails from channels/sites you’ve subscribed and you don’t want them anymore, then you can unsubscribe them.
- If you don’t want mail from any particular email address, you can block them.

Many time Yahoo services stop working because there are some technical issues on Yahoo’s side. If Yahoo Mail is down, then you have no other option then to wait for Yahoo to fix the problem.
