    Yahoo webmail has been experiencing issues the entire day. Looks like it finally caved and everyone is getting the "unable to send message" error. According to their twitter they are aware and working on the issue. How in the world does a major provider like Yahoo allow this to happen?

    I've got this message multiple times this past year.

    More commonly I'll just write a message and try to send it, then nothing happens. No message. No message sent. The send button seems disconnected or something. Sometimes it lasts for hours.

    I don't know what's going on with yahoo but I've noticed a lot of bugs and random bs this past year.

    everyone is getting this issue at the moment. its so shocking to me, no way Google would ever allow this to happen with gmail. Yahoo has dropped the ball so many times over the years in the tech department which is why they are no longer the powerhouse they once where.

    Of course Google wouldn't let this happen. Do you know how much sensitive data about you they would lose in just an hour of down time? How would they know what kind of ads to blast in your face?
