    Why is my yahoo mail not receiving emails on any gadgets? I can send emails successfully but can’t accept it.

    It is happening with my Yahoo mail account only while my wife’s account is working completely fine.

    Do not forget to check the internet connection. Maybe your computer is not connected to the internet. That’s why your yahoo mail is not receiving emails.

    Recently, I was facing yahoo mail not receiving emails due to forwarding settings. I don’t know how, but I enabled the email forwarding on my yahoo account.

    That’s why the email was being forwarded to another yahoo address.

    You should also check the email forwarding settings on your yahoo account. You might have enabled the yahoo mail forwarding that’s why you can’t receive the emails on yahoo account.

    1. Sign in to the yahoo mail account.
    2. Go to the Settings and click on more settings.
    3. Now click on the mailbox.
    4. Click on your email address and scroll down, if you see any email address in the forwarding address. You need to remove it from there.

    Finally, your yahoo mail account will start working fine.
