Cannot log in to yahoo mail

When I try to log in to yahoo mail it tells me i am not connected to internet, but I am. I have insight broad ban service. When I try to do the dell support it tells me Im not connected to the internet, but I am. It wouldn't let me download firefox for the same reason but i was on the homepage. I pinged it and it said all packets dropped.

Sometimes Yahoo is just DOWN. I've noticed about 4 times a year or so & I'm online 5-6 days out of 7.

I have Outlook express for E-mail. How do I access my E-mail from another computer using yahoo

More than likely your internet service provider has a website you can go to to check your personal e-mail online from anyinternet-connected computer. call them or check your manual they gave you for the address and then look for a link like webmail or mail or check mail.all you will need once your there is the same username and password you use to log onto the internet.
Thier phone number should be on your internet bill.
