Steps to fix when Yahoo mail is not working in Outlook

  • Check the status of the server

The first step towards fixing this error is to make sure that the servers of the Yahoo mail are not down. In case the servers are down, you will not be able to use Yahoo mail in any of the versions of Outlook, which will further lead to the error that says "can't sync Yahoo contacts" error.

You can simply check the status of the servers with the help of third-party websites like the down detector. in and the outage report. All you have to do is to visit these websites and just click on the Yahoo icon to check the status. If the status shows that the servers are down, you will simply have to wait until the servers are back up.

  • Make sure to check the internet connection

This is one of the steps that one should always keep in mind before he or she tries to access their email account in Outlook. If you have a slow internet connection, the page will not load which will further lead to this error. You can try to fix this error either by trying a different service provider or by fixing the current connection.
