I cannot log onto my Yahoo Mail from my MacBook using the same PW I use when logging on from my iMac, iPhone or Nook. I have tried both Safari & Chrome - neither works. Yahoo only gives me an option to CHANGE my PW - which I do not want to do because I have it set up for auto log in from the other devices. There is no option to RECOVER my PW, although there is a link that says I can recover my PW. But I checked the PW on these other devices, and it is the same PW I keep trying to use on the MacBook. Have been trying for several days - it was working fine last week. Can't contact Yahoo because the boxes on contact customer service won't allow my question, insisting I am giving personal information not asked for. I'm only describing the issue, not mentioning my ID, etc. WHat could the problem be, and how can I fix it?

Hi coachgns Thanks for the update and glad its now OK I have heard of this happening in the past, but I've vever been able to find out the exact cause. The best I have been told is that maybe Yahoo were switching over servers for routine maintenance or replacement and then testing out the various functions, ironing out the bugs and then retesting..... I do know that Yahoo have had some security concerns over the integrity of some of their infrastructure.... maybe this explains the "now you can, now you cant" scenario... Regards paws
