In January this year, Yahoo announced that its email service was the target of a coordinated hacking attempt.
Yahoo has addressed this outage and emailed LA Times that “Web access has now been fully restored for Yahoo Mail users. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.” But this is an alarming situation for Yahoo Mail because it is earning the reputation of an unreliable email service.
