Error message when trying to access Yahoo mail

    I have two Yahoo mail accounts. One opens without any problems. For the
    last 2 or 3 days, every attempt to open the second mail account causes an
    error message which says cannot find server. However, I can access Yahoo
    Groups from the same computer and using the same login information. Does
    anyone have any suggestions about what could cause the problem and how I can
    work around it? I also cannot figure out any way to send a direct message
    to Yahoo about the problem. I have numerous messages in that account that I
    need, and I am expecting several more.

    Thanks,
    MaryL

    not sure if this will work but, you can try accessing yahoo mail from
    another countrys website for example "au.yahoo.com"
