Emails go down for leading providers

Yahoo users around the world have been struck with a lack of email services for as much as 7 hours.

The service loss caused the sending and receiving of mail to become impossible for the period.

In the UK alone Yahoo is the powerhouse for many services including; BT, Sky and TalkTalk email accounts. Some AOL accounts have also been effected.

Downdetector said the problem occurred from around 07:00 BST.

“Most services are back online,” Yahoo tweeted shortly after 14:30 BST.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we get everything back up and running.”

The US company Verizon own the Yahoo company.

Despite the services returning, the emails transferred to the accounts during the time are in some cases lost.
