This is a very common problem. Upgrading you iphone firmware if it's not current may solve this problem. Or try changing your address for the account from email@example.com" to your yahoo id without the "@yahoo.com"
Otherwise the built-in yahoo option for iphone can be buggy:
Delete the Yahoo account on your iphone
Create anew account via Other option
Fill in the usual user id and password fields
Under IMAP tab set Host Name under Incoming Mail Server to imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com
Under Outgoing Mail Server, in Host Name field set it to cwmx.com
If you have a very large yahoo inbox, you may have to do the following:
1. Go to your yahoo account in a regular browser on your computer. Makesure you're using the new version of Yahoo mail (the one that looks andfeels like outlook).
2. Create a new folder. I called mine "archive - inbox".
3. Select ALL emails in your inbox so that your inbox folder will becompletely empty once you move them (there's a box you can check whichwill select everything). I had over 5,000 emails in my inbox, so thiswould have taken ages using the Classic version of Yahoo mail.
4. Move all emails to your newly created archive folder. Go back intothe archive folder and select any unread/new emails and move them backto your inbox.
5. Go into Yahoo on your iphone and refresh the mail. This will clearout the old emails and download the most recent emails from your inbox.

First, you need to know your IMAP incoming and outgoing mail servers. These servers can be provided by your email service provider. Once you have these info, you may follow the steps below:
1.Go to 'Settings' on the main menu on your iPhone. 2. Click on Mail, Contacts, Calendar... 3. Select Add Account and tap 'Other' 4. Add mail account and then fill out the lines with your name, e-mail address and password then tap 'Save'. 5. Select IMAP and then use the information below:
* Incoming Mail Server * - Host Name: type the IMAP incoming server - User Name: type your complete email address - Password: your e-mail password
* Outgoing Mail Server * - Host Name: type the IMAP outgoing server - User Name: type your complete email address - Password: your e-mail password
There is not an SMTP outgoing server called 'apple.smtp.mail.yahoo.com'. Try removing 'apple' from the beginning of the SMTP outgoing server name in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Yahoo Email Address > Click on email address. If that does help, re-add your Yahoo email to your iPhone and test the account again.
Follow the below mentioned steps :1.
Locate information concerning your particular email service's incoming POP3/IMAP and outgoing SMTP server addresses. Refer to the resources section below for a list of server settings that pertains to many common e-mail providers.nformation mentioned below :
Yahoo Mail offers standard POP3 access for receiving emails incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite email client software. To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings:
Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
POP Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings
Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)
IMPORTANT : Yahoo mail on outlook or cell phone is a paid service by yahoo.
Turn on your mobile phone and wait for the standby screen to appear. go to "Menu" button on your screen and select "Messages" from the menu, press "Select" to continue.
Go to the "Settings" menu and press "Select," choose the "Email" option. Select the "Email setup wizard," press the "Select" button and hit "Yes" to continue.
Choose an email account type you wish to configure, press "Next," choose the "Account" option, press "Name" and use your keypad to label your new email account.
Press the "Next" button to continue with the email setup. Enter your email address and password, press "OK" to continue.
Enter the incoming POP3/IMAP information pertaining to your particular email service and press "OK" to continue. Select the "Outgoing Server (SMTP" menu item) and enter in the appropriate SMTP address for your email provider and press "OK" to continue.
Hit the "Select" and wait for the "You have configured this email account successfully" dialog to appear.
But if you want to get around the Nokia Messaging then here is what to do:
Go to Mail on your phone - Options - Settings - scroll down to email - Options - New Mailbox
Click - start and then NO to allow connections (that stops Nokia Messaging swinging into control)
Now enter your hotmail address except do not put @hotmail.com at the end. Put @abc.com
e..g. if you email is *****@yahoo.com then enter mailto:*****@abc.com
This is very important because if fools the phone into thinking this is a non hotmail email account. If you do not use this by pass, then when the operating system detects you are doing a hotmail, it simply tell you that it has made you a nice new bookmark for the hotmail web page.
Now enter your password - press OK
Now enter your correct hotmail address - e.g. *****@yahoo.com - press OK (this time you can use the yahoo)
Now you will get an error message saying unable to define settings and it will allow you to manually set the POP3 or IMAP. yahoo is of course POP3 so choose that.
OK - to the wizard intro
Incoming mail server - pop3.live.com
Security - SSL/TLS - very important
Outgoing mail server - smtp.live.com
Security - Start TLS ----> THIS IS THE NEW SETTING THAT HAS RECENTLY CHANGED. BEFORE SSL/TLS WAS FINE BUT NOW THE MICROSOFT SERVER IS REJECTING SSL/TLS EMAIL WITH AN ERROR 530 MESSAGE/START WITH TLS.
SO PLEASE ENSURE THIS OUTMAIL SECURITY IS CORRECT - START TLS.
If you yahoo was working fine but suddenly it stopped working for outbound emails, then this is the setting you now need change.
Port Number - 25 (which is the default)
Some users have reported that it only works if you use Port 587 for outbound. This depends on whether or not not ISP is port blocking or not. I suggest you try 25 and if you still cannot send emails via hotmail, then change to 587.
The wizard should now complete the setup and in the list you should now see the new email but now it needs editing further so click options - settings (on the new email you have just added).
- Connection settings
- Incoming e-mail
- change the user name to the hotmail one i.e. change *****@abc.com to *****@yahoo.com
leave password correct
leave incoming mail server pop3.live.com
access point - whatever is your default - I set to always ask
mailbox name - change this to *****@yahoo.com i.e. your yahoo address
leave mailbox type as pop3
leave security ports SSL/TLS - this is still okay for incoming mail
leave port - default
leave APOP as OFF
now back to OUTGOING MAIL SERVER
change my email address to your correct hotmail one i.e. ****@yahoo.com
change user name to your correct hotmail one i.e. *****@yahoo.com
leave password - it should be same as for incoming mail
Log into Sky webmail, click mail settings, forwarding and pop/imap enable IMAP.
iPhone: Configure your mail client:
1. Tap Settings. 2. Tap Mail. 3. Tap Add Account. 4. Tap Other. (Note: Don't tap Sky Email; if you do, you'll set up POP rather than IMAP. We are aware of this issue and are currently working to make setting up Sky Email more intuitive for the iPhone). 5. Make sure that: - The IMAP tab is highlighted - Host Name is imap.tools.sky.com - Username is your full Sky Email address, including '@sky.com' - For Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP), Host Name is smtp.tools.sky.com
6. Tap Save.
And you've finished. You can verify your Advanced settings by tapping Settings, then [your Sky Email IMAP Account] followed by Advanced.
Incoming Settings: - Use SSL: ON - Authentication: password - Server Port: 993 for IMAP.
Outgoing Settings: - Use SSL: ON - Authentication: Password - Server Port: 465

well to the first person unfortunatly the bellsouth email system is not yet designed to work with the 3g network so you would have to turn that off to use bellsouth.
Also for all of you need to remember that both Yahoo and AOL email work with the IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol.
It is a method of accessing electronic mail or bulletin board messages
that are kept on a (possibly shared) mail server. In other words, it
permits a "client" email program to access remote message stores as if
they were local. For example, email stored on an IMAP server can be
manipulated from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the
office, and a notebook computer while traveling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.
where as the bellsouth system is a POP system. what the means is that when you check your email client on either the computer or the phone it is actually pulling the mail from the bellsouth server to the respective devices and deleting the email unless you have both set to leave a copy on the bellsouth server.
and again the sending and recieving issues with bell south is due to the 3g network
So I had the same problem using a Network Solutions mail account and got it working. Here is what I did:
Name: Whatever you want Address: firstname.lastname@example.org (user specific) Must include the @domain Description: same as above INCOMING MAIL SERVER User Name: email@example.com (user specific) Must include the @domain password: password OUTGOING MAIL SERVER Host name: smtp.domain.com Username:no entry password:no entry
At message that SSL failed select YES to continue without using SSL should get message twice (incoming & outgoing server tests)
Made no changes to Authentication (default-password) or Server port (default-25)
Came up and began to load mail instantly.Sent test mail and all is good.
