Why can't I log to my Yahoo! mailbox from home anymore?

I used to have My Yahoo! as my home page. When I had mail I would just click the new mail icon from my home page and check my mail. Well, one random day the link stopped working. No matter how I tried to get to mail.yahoo.com I couldn't do it. I can go everywhere else, i.e. yahoo.com, launch.yahoo.com, hot jobs, ect. I can log on to my mailbox from work just not at home, not even on my boyfriends computer. What could be the cause of this???


No, it's my basic home wireless router. It doesn't block anything.

Update 2:

Thanks but I already checked the blocked sites....there are none.

    Your Internet connection must be through a router that has the ability of blocking sites. Check with whoever has control of the router.

    If you are using IE, try the following:

    click tools->Internet options-> click the security tab, and click on restricted sites. Then click on the sites button. If mail.yahoo.com is listed, you will not be able to access it.

    Maybe you can also switch to firefox.
