I am having the same issue aftr last Yahoo update, but I am only having the sipinning wheel when opening Yahoo mail in Safari. When I am in Camino, not issues at all. So, I really don't know where is the problem Safari or Yahoo??? - I reset and emptied cache and the issue percist. Hope someone from Apple is reading these post.
My yahoo account has started working again fine this morning all on it's own as much as downloading mail but the yahoo account still isn't pushing mail which it used to do does anyone know how to sort this I've tried all the usual things, can you set up some sort of exchange account so it pushes or is that just g.mail. Any help please
I had a customer come in who had yahoo mail quit on her iPad and iPhone. It complained that the server could not be found.
What I had to do to fix the problem was to delete the yahoo mail configs from their iPhone and iPad and reinstall them, choosing OTHER as the mail type and putting the incoming and outgoing info in manually.
The customer's mail worked perfectly, but this technique loses calendar functionality.
The recent problem with Yahoo Mail and the beach ball on my MBP seems to have been resolved. However, the new issue is today I am stuck in a "log in loop" on my iPad trying to access my email via Safari.
Yahoo recognizes me as logged in at the top of the screen, but repeatedly prompts me to verfiy my password. I have rebooted, changed the password, and called Yahoo (yes, I got a human). Nothing has worked and the human told me to contact Apple! "downrightnow.com" earlier today indicated a problem with yahoo mail.
Any HELP would be appreciated.
I was having the same spinning beach ball problem on Yahoo Mail and Safari. It seemed to stop after doing the following:
Preferences > Security tab
Uncheck "Enable plug-ins"
The problem has since gone away though it has only been an hour but I am able to use Yahoo Mail again on Safari. I also clicked on the Extensions tab in preferences and turned them off for good measure, even though I didn't have any.
Give it a try see if it works for you also.
I really don't want to disable anything in Safari just to get Yahoo Mail to work. I can't believe this is still a problem with no real solution. I have been using Firefox whenever I need to access my Yahoo Mail and this works fine. I had hopes that with the recent Software Update for Safari that a "fix" might have been arrived at. However, no such luck. I'm still getting the beachball when trying to use Yahoo Mail with Safari after applying the Safari update. My correspondences with Yahoo tech support have been fruitless. Kind of unfortunate that there is an incompatibility of some sort at work here with no resolution in sight.
Steve try this.
From your Safari menu bar click Safari / Preferences then select the Security tab. Click: Show Cookies
Delete all Yahoo related cookies. Now select the Autofill tab and make sure *user names and passwords* is selected.
Quit Safari (Command + Q)
Now open Keychain Access (Applications/Utilities) Select Passwords on the left.
Delete the Yahoo keychains. (You can search for the Yahoo keychain by typing Yahoo in the search field top right corner of the window). You may have more then one Yahoo keychain since you changed the password.
Relaunch Safari. Go to the Yahoo site. Login with your user name and password as usual, click yes when prompted. That will create a new Yahoo keychain for you.
This was not my idea found it on another discussion about yahoo login. It has helped my imac with the same issues your having. Also make sure everything is updated in your yahoo account.
I have the exact same problem as many of you. While I don't have a problem with my Yahoo Mail via my iPhone, I do have major problems with it in my MBP/Safari. I also have had this problem with Firefox. Let me be clear: the beachball problem started and only started for me when Yahoo upgraded its e-mail client interface a few months ago.
After much testing with this and that, I am really starting to believe commenter KiltedTim is indeed correct, that this is a Yahoo problem that they clearly are unwilling to address.
I have AT&T as my ISP and had a 2Wire router, and given all I've read on these message boards it seems there was a problem relating to the 2Wire which was amplified with Yahoo Mail. However, I've since gotten a new modem from AT&T (Westell 6100 routerless modem) and bought a separate Belkin wireless router, and I still get the beachball but in Yahoo Mail only so far. I even connected my MBP directly to the Westell modem via ethernet and still got the freeze-up in Yahoo Mail. As I bandied about in the ridiculousness of multiple trial-and-error tests, the evidence is really pointing to Yahoo Mail being the culprit. It's so bad that the Yahoo Mail freeze-up actually causes any new webpages I create while the beachball spins to freeze up.
Now, I was getting frequent connection drops with my 2Wire while surfing other sites other than Yahoo. Clearly there was an incompatibility between 2Wire and my MBP. Only yesterday was I able to swap out my 2Wire with the Westell so I'll give it a week to see if I get connection drops with other sites other than Yahoo. My point in waiting a week is that if I happen to not get dropped at other sites randomly (fingers crossed) but still get the beachball in Yahoo Mail, that's only further evidence that Yahoo is the culprit in this folly.
BTW, I've reported this problem to Yahoo multiple times and got the standard "shut off modem and power back on", "clear cookies", "restart computer" hish hash that I already did prior to reporting. Yahoo clearly is unhelpful so as a bit of advice don't bother contacting them for help. It'll only waste your time and leave you frustrated.
