I went to and logged in just fine. Maybe you are using some email app but you didn't say that.

I used Chrome and Seamonkey. IE lost me years ago. Since it can leak like a screen door on a sub, I can't test this for you. In other words, I tested it on two other browsers and all good.

Think about it, why would MSFT make this work with YaHoo?
