Yahoo Mail Goes Down (for Some), Gmail Users Offer Apathetic Condolences

Paul Lilly

A glitch in the Matrix (or some other calamity) has some Yahoo email users shaking an angry fist at the god of electronic messages today. Others have found it more therapeutic to voice their frustrations on Twitter in succinct 140-character or less outrages. Those having trouble accessing their Yahoo email account see an error message stating "This webpage is not available," while others have noted "Error 501 (net::ERR_INSECURE_RESPONSE): Unknown Error," along with other messages. Unfortunately, Yahoo isn't much more enlightening on what's going on.

"Some Yahoo services are currently inaccessible to some users in certain locations," Yahoo said in a statement provided to Mashable . "We are working to correct the issue and restore all functionality immediately. We know that this may have caused some inconvenience and we apologize to our users who might be affected."

How long the outage has been going on isn't known, though a CNet reader claims Yahoo's been having "severe outage issues for the last 24-hours plus." Based on the Twitter complaints, the email woes don't appear to be region specific.
