Yahoo is not Sending Emails  💥
Yahoo is used every day worldwide by millions of people. But, it's not an email app that is perfect. Sometimes the recipients don't receive the emails. Yahoo server issues could cause this. Yahoo will resume sending the emails once the server is up and running. Sometimes the issue could be in your internet connection or with the application. Let's solve this problem!
1. CHECK THE YAHOO SERVERS
Is the Yahoo mail server down? The easiest way to find this out is to swiftly follow this link. You will be taken directly to a page that displays mail.yahoo.com ping time and downtime. Yahoo! is unlikely to be down but you never know.
2. OLD VERSION OF YAHOO APP
Have you checked your Yahoo app to see if there are any updates? You should check your Yahoo app for updates. Sometimes older apps can cause many problems. For the latest version, follow the link.
3. DOUBLE-CHECK RECIPIENT
Before you send an email, verify the address. If the email address is incorrect, it will be returned to you. It's easy to make small mistakes when writing to the recipient. Always double-check your work. It's easy to make mistakes with the TLD (the part after the coma). The mail will not be sent to a recipient whose address ends in.net if you have written.com.
4. INTERNET CONNECTION
Yahoo may not be sending your emails because of problems with your internet connection. Slow internet connections can slow down Yahoo's ability to send emails. To determine if there is an issue with your internet connection, you should examine it.
5. UPDATE YOUR BROWSER
Yahoo can be used in conjunction with any browser such as Firefox, Safari or Google Chrome. You should always make sure to check for the most recent updates. An outdated browser could be the problem.
6. CLEAR BROWSING CACHE
Clearing your browser's cache is an excelent idea. It is possible that browsing cache data may fill up over time and cause problems.
Clear cache in Google Chrome: Open Google-Chrome and click on the 3 dots in the top right corner. Click "Settings". Proceed to "Privacy & Security". Click "Clear Browsing-data" then click "Clear data".
Clear cache in Mozilla Firefox: Open Firefox and click the 3 lines at the bottom (right corner). Click "Settings". Proceed to "Privacy & Settings". Go down and Click "Delete browsing-data". One more time click "Delete". Click on "delete site data and cookies when Firefox is closed" to clear your cache data. You can select the box to the right to have your cache data cleared manually.
7. OUTGOING MAIL SERVER SETTINGS
Of course check if you are using the right outgoing mail server with the right port numbers.
IMAP: Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com, Port - 465 or 587, Requires SSL - Yes, Requires authentication - Yes
POP3: Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com, Port - 465 or 587, Requires SSL - Yes, Requires TLS - Yes (if available), Requires authentication - Yes
8. MAIl TOO LARGE?
If you want to send multiple images, your maximum file size is 25MB. Yahoo doesn't compress images. This is good for image resolution, but it can lead to excessive file size if too many images need to be sent. Yahoo zip files are better because they take up less storage.
9. CLEAR STORAGE
Yahoo requires a certain amount space to send emails. Your phone should have enough space. Clearing drafts, clearing browsing information, optimizing photos, videos, and deleting outdated files are some ways to clear space.
10. ASK YAHOO
If your issue is still there and you continue to have problems with Yahoo Mail today , please contact Yahoo Help. On the relevant page, click on the "Mail" tab in the main menu. You will be further guided through a questionnaire after which you send an email.
Note that the correct URL for Yahoo Help is the one I just gave you. Beware of searching in Google for "Yahoo helpline" or anything similar and not to end up on a scammersite of callcenters in India that will try to steal your money.
