Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO)’s email system is causing headaches for many users today, as they’re reporting that the service has gone down. Reports of problems with Yahoo Mail are sporadic, however, as some users of sites like DownDetector.com say that Yahoo Mail came back up within the last few minutes, while others say the service is still down.
Unsurprisingly, Yahoo Mail users took to Twitter to complain about the service being down. Others said the service has already come back up for them.
