Question about Yahoo Mail
My yahoo mail is very slow, I don't know why but it seems to work really slow in the last days? anyone noticed it also? I have experienced the same problem since the Chat features were added to Yahoo. My Yahoo Mail is VERY SLOW!! 10 to 15 seconds to open an email, or to do anything. I will have to find out about Google Chrome - how would it affect Yahoo mail? If anyone has any recommendations on how to address the EXTREME slowness of Yahoo mail I would appreciate it. I have had my same email address for over 11 years and definately do not want to change it!
I am a Computer Software Expert. I believe that Yahoo! has lately made silly mistakes in their Yahoo! Mail in software/hardware side. The Mail is extremely slow even I have a super computer. This problem is Yahoo! Mail's problem; it has nothing to do with your PC as anyone uses it will suffer nowadays. In the past, it was nice and fast. Now it is Yahoo! Garbage Mail, so they should change the name!

It is very slow. I have tried from work (LAN), home (high speed cable) and on the road. Still sometimes it won't open or take forever to open an email/reply to an email. Definitely something on their end. Doesn't matter whether it's Classic or Regular or Plus. Still very slow. And I even pay for this. What gives Yahoo?? Are you trying to push users to another email client??

Yes I am seeing the same SLOWNESS and stickiness when using Yahoo mail. When I go to do anything it seems to get stuck - somertimes just for a few seconds and other timesI actually have to exit Yahoo Mail and relaunch to continue. I don't think it is my computer because I keep a close eye on viruses and such. Also it seems to be more prevalent when I am doing anything through Yahoo. I don't want to change my mail e-mail to a different provider because in general I like how yahoo is formatted but It may soon be time to say goodbye to an old friend... Good luck!

My Yahoo Mail is running very, very slow lately. It is taking me 10 times longer to check my emails. THis slow down has occurred recently, over the last week or two. Today it is the worst ever. I have the fastest internet service around and a quick computer. All my other sites run nice and quick. It is definately an issue with Yahoo specifically. What can I do to speed it up? I will have to change to a different e-mail server otherwise. It took me 3 hours today to check my email from the last 3 days. Rediculous. It should have taken me 20 minutes. Please help!

To fix this, in Yahoo!Mail, click the Gear, go to Mail options and then select 'Basic' under advanced settings. Click Save.
You loose some functionality but at least it runs faster.

K ..if you suspect that its the server problem, then try switching back to yahoo mail classic.its faster than the new yahoo mail, but it lacks many features. but for your information, i didnt find it so slower when i used my new yahoo mail.just check out your connection and internet settings for your browser.

My solution... switch to Google Mail. Very fast. In some ways, much easier to use. Filters work better. More intuitive. Lots of options as well.
Also, unlike Yahoo, it coordinates with email clients, in my case, Thunderbird.
