Now Yahoo Mail is having problems

After a day of Windows Live outages, some users of Yahoo's mail service are reporting problems getting their messages.

Well, when it rains it pours. After a day of writing about Windows Live mail problems , I was alerted by a colleague that Yahoo mail was out for them.

I tabbed over to my Yahoo Mail window and noticed that my window, which had been working all day, was now returning an error message.

When I tried to reload the page, I got the following message:

CNET News.com

"Can't talk now. System's down," read the headline. "Sorry for the holdup. Looks like a temporary glitch in our network has part of Yahoo! mail down, so you're briefly without service. Rest assured the alarms are blaring in the basement and our team is working frantically to get you up and running ASAP. Again, the snag is on our end -- so there's no need for you to do a thing."

Well, I guess I've had enough e-mail for one day anyway. I'm headed to bed. Hopefully everyone's servers will be working tomorrow.

Update: As I was publishing this blog, my mail service was restored.
