Yahoo! Mail is Down! - Error Code 15 - Joins the infamous failed services

After recent failures of GMail, Amazon Web Services, Twitter, and few others, Yahoo! has felt the urge to join this infamous elite group.

I am unable to access Yahoo! Mail and while accessing my account I am taken to a screen which tells me about Error Code 15.



Here's the message:

Sorry for the inconvenience.

You've stumbled upon a temporary problem we're having with Yahoo! Mail. Usually this problem gets resolved quickly, without you doing a thing.

  • Try pressing the Reload or Refresh button on your browser, or signing out and back into Yahoo! Mail. Hopefully that will take care of things.

    If that doesn't fix the problem, please try again shortly. The fact that you're reading this page means we've been automatically notified of the issue, and chances are we're working on it now.

  • If you think you've been more than patient and tried the tricks above, feel free to contact Customer Care about Error Code 15.


Thanks,

The Yahoo! Mail Team


I hope these companies knew how to run services without any hitches but that does look like a distant possibility. Would you have problems in trusting these services for running your business or for hosting your emails?

Is it too hard for these companies to protect a production environment from failing? Heck, I thought they tested it thoroughly before final deployment.

  1. i haven't been able to get into my email with Yahoo all day today and all day yesterday. Hmmm....they tell me to send them a message quoting error code 15. Ha! code 15 isn't on the list so i'm screwed. I sent them a generic and asked that they respond to my hotmail account which is my secondary. Might have to make it my primary now.

  6. Last time I had an error code a few years ago it cost me $30 bucks to have Yahoo fix it. They might be trolling for money again.

    You've stumbled upon an unexpected, temporary problem. Performing your action again in a few moments will likely resolve the problem completely. If not, we suggest you try re-launching Yahoo! Mail.

  17. The "new yahoo" is just wretched, and now I can't even access that. Time to take control and get the hell out of Yahoo once and for all. Had them for 16 years...but they haven't been reliable for the last 2. GOOD BYE and good luck with anybody trying to stay with this ridiculous service.

  18. Yahoo needs to drop the Pretext, "The Best Web-Based Email". Such deception, maybe The Worst Of The Best Web-Based Email is more appropriate.

  19. Has anyone figured out "area 15"?

    ReplyDelete
