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?"

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
