Emails aren't received in Yahoo Mail

Not getting the emails you expect is frustrating. Use these steps to identify if there's an issue with your account or the sender's account that's preventing the messages from arriving.

Check if your account has any errors

Sign in to your Yahoo Mail account on a computer and send yourself an email.

  • If you get an error - address that to fix the issue.
  • If you don't get an error - your account is working as expected.

Check your account settings

These settings can prevent email from getting to your Inbox:

Have the sender check their account

If you didn't find anything wrong with your account, then the issue is on the sender's side.

  • Make sure they entered your full email address correctly.
  • Suggest they contact their email provider for further assistance.
