Apologies up front if this is inappropriate - I’m not a regular here, don’t know if it’s frowned upon to bad-mouth a particular product or company. But, this seems worth posting.
I’ve been using Yahoo e-mail for ages, prob some 20+ years. For a while it’s seemed to be creaking a bit, but now I think it’s just gone FUBAR.
It’s often very slow to connect to - I thought it might be my e-mail client (Outlook), which was clearly getting fluky on its own, but I got a new client (eMClient), and the difference is clear: bing, bang, boom, G-mail’s fine, then it’s anyone’s guess what happens w/ Yahoo. I’ve gotten numerous messages that it cannot connect w/ Yahoo servers, a while later it goes thru fine.
Yahoo has several times failed to recognize my password, then a second later accepts the exact same info, w/ no change on my part at all.
But the kicker - the other day I got 3 e-mails that had been sent to me TWO WEEKS before I received them. They were sent from 2 different parties, at 3 diff times, so it was not a problem w/ the senders - they simply got lost in space, for 2 weeks, on Yahoo’s servers. These are 3 that I happened to notice, there may well be others that I didn’t notice or that got lost entirely.
And on top of that, I’m paying for this? Yeah, time to do the G-mail thing.
So, anyway, just some poss helpful info - if you’re using 'em, you might want to change. Onward.
