Yahoo Mail outages due to maintenance

Some users unable to access e-mail as a result of two separate outages during scheduled maintenance work.

Some Yahoo Mail users were unable to log in to their e-mail accounts on at least two separate occasions this week due to planned maintenance work, Yahoo says.

On Monday, Yahoo Mail was inaccessible to an unknown number of users as a result of an "unexpected issue" that arose during routine scheduled maintenance, the company says. The issue was resolved and by 9 a.m. Tuesday morning the outage was over.

Then, on Tuesday evening the mail service was unavailable for one hour and 40 minutes during a scheduled maintenance release coordinated with AT&T, according to Yahoo.

I'm kind of surprised that scheduled maintenance work would disrupt any user's access to Yahoo Mail and would think that a backup system would be employed. But, what do I know?
