Yahoo mail login - security certificate has expired - NO ENTRY!!!

Hey all
Last night Yahoo's security certificate expired at 23:59 and ever since both seamonkey and firefox have been stone walling me and my partner from accessing our inboxes.
If you are a yahoo mail user and using a mozilla based browser this is what you will see - note that there is no usual "Take the risk and continue" type option, it completely blocks you:

So far yahoo do not seem interested in this problem at all. Last night firefox WOULD allow me in the first time but ever since it has refused.
Internet explorer appears to allow entry:

If any of you have an imap client (eg outlook) you may wish to configure this now or risk loosing access to your account until yahoo go back to work and fix itr (presumably monday)

No problems here, what URL are you using to access Yahoo email? And is this a generic Yahoo email or BT-originated?

Just pinged uk-mg42.mail.yahoo.com and got an IP of 217.12.13.41  (eu-ycpi-uno.aycpi.b.yahoodns.net)
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Well we use the old skool traditional direct link: http://mail.yahoo.com ; Wink
From there yahoo daisy chains itself through all sorts of other subdomains including login.yahoo.com

Working at this end now too - and for the missus.
I guess they'll just sweep that under the carpet too and pretend it never happened  Roll eyes
