Yahoo Mail Suffers Outage for Some Users

Mashable

Yahoo's email service appeared to be suffering an outage Wednesday, though not all users were affected.

The site is producing an error message saying "This webpage is not available" and "Error 501 (net::ERR_INSECURE_RESPONSE): Unknown error." Some users have taken to Twitter to complain: "Yahoo Mail is not letting me log in. That's probably its way of saying 'Stop using Yahoo Mail.,'" reads a tweet from @pensexperienceM. "WTF is wrong with #Yahoo mail?" asks @LisaPampuch.
