    From what I gather, Yahoo Mail is having a ton of issues leaving people unable to even open their mail account. Mine will open for a second and then go right to an error message. This has been going on since yesterday morning and still going on today.. Don’t bother calling Yahoo because they just disconnect you with no help.

    Try this link: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ya…

    I am really getting ticked off, personally. Let me know if you find a fix.

    Close the mail app on the iphone and go to a computer, sign in to your yahoo mail account and do the verification that it pops up. If there is no such thing that pops up then go back to your iphone and do the following:

    1.) Delete the yahoo mail account on your iphone.
    2.) Add mail account using “other” instead of “Yahoo!” and setup as IMAP account.
    3.) Use the following information:
    – username MUST include @yahoo.com at the end
    – incoming server = imap.mail.yahoo.com
    – outgoing server = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    – always retype your password

    Tell me if this solution works or doesn’t work. It worked on my girlfriend’s iphone4 after 16 hours of reading online and messing with it and a lot of restoring.

    Thank you, thank you!
    After 2 evenings of trying to get my Yahoo mail setup on my new iPad, this worked like a charm!
    So simple but no other website mentioned logging into mail from your computer to verify. As soon as I did that, everything worked perfectly!

    Thank-You! It worked like a charm. Been dealing with this email issue for a week and no one seems to know how to fix it. By the way I have an iPhone 4 that works off of the straight talk service just in case anyone would like to know :) Woot! Thanks James, finally someone with a working brain.

    I tried this on my son’s email (@ymail.com suffix) and it still doesn’t work. It works fine for my @yahoo.com address though. Any ideas?
