Yahoo email suffers partial outage

Yahoo confirms on Twitter that some users were without email Thursday

Yahoo's email service was struggling Thursday with users around the globe complaining that they've had no access for most of the day.

It's not yet clear when the service started to stagger or how many of Yahoo's users have been affected. However, Yahoo confirmed on its Twitter account that there is a problem.

"We are aware that we have experienced an outage, and we are working to address the issue," tweeted @yahoo. "We appreciate your patience."

While some users seemed fairly patient about the inconvenience, some were a bit more frustrated when they took to Twitter to vent about the outage of their free email service.

"It's been a full day with no yahoo email. Error 15... and Error 17. What's up?!? @yahoo #yahoocare," tweeted @tmgoodwin.

And @christaylor_nyc tweeted, "Yahoo Mail down, again. Why do you make it so hard to love you?"

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
