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 example@yahoo.com" to your yahoo id without the "@yahoo.com"

Otherwise the built-in yahoo option for iphone can be buggy:

  1. Delete the Yahoo account on your iphone
  2. Create anew account via Other option
  3. Fill in the usual user id and password fields
  4. Under IMAP tab set Host Name under Incoming Mail Server to imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com
  5. 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.

    You can also try the following solution if none of that works:



    1. Log into Yahoo! Mail on the web by visiting mail.yahoo.com.

    2. If you were able to sign into web mail, verify that the same username and password are being used on the iPhone.

    3. If iPhone is still unable to access Yahoo! Mail, change your Yahoo!
      password on the web (when logged into Yahoo! Mail, click Options and
      then click Account information). Be sure to use only letters and
      numbers in your new password.

    4. After this is complete, setup Yahoo! Mail on iPhone using the new password.

Using my yahoo.com as a third party so I can sign into my Mail (Apple) and read my Gmail! One is a POP3 and one is IMAP. Can you explain this to me so I can fix my account?


Hi,

POP3 creates local copies of emails and deletes the originals from the server, the emails are tied to that specific machine, and cannot be accessed via any webmail or any separate client on other computers.

IMAP stores emails on a remote mail server, you'll have a limited mailbox size depending on the settings provided by the email service.

Depending on your personal style of communicating and whom you prefer to get your email service from, you can pretty quickly narrow down how you should use your email.
  • If you use check your email from a lot of devices, phones, or computers, set up your email clients to use IMAP.
  • If you use mostly webmail and want your phone or iPad to sync with your webmail, use IMAP, as well.
  • If you're using one email client on one dedicated machine (say, in your office), you might be fine with POP3.
  • If you have a huge history of email, you may want to use POP3 to keep from running out of space on the remote email server.
Compared to POP3, IMAP allows users to log into many different email clients or webmail interfaces and view the same emails, because the emails are kept on remote email servers until the user deletes them. In a world where we now check our email on web interfaces, email clients, and on mobile phones, IMAP has become extremely popular.

You can either create POP3 or IMAP for both Gmail and Yahoo

Yahoo mail error


This is quite unusual and there is nothing you can do about this except to report this error to the Yahoo mail technical support team.

Go to the following page

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/forms_index.html

and from it select the form (click the page to get it), that is proper for your report.

Don't send any login information unless they ask for it (they will likely NOT ask for a password, but can ask you for your username).

This error information shows that their mail login processing scripts and possibly their database interface have been corrupted or coded incorrectly, and this is something that only they can fix, not you, the mailbox user. HTH

Hi, just to clarify you are trying to consolidate all of your email to the Mail.app program on your Mac, correct? It's not too tough and I'll let you know a secret. Yahoo normally doesnt allow you to do this without being part of their pay program but they launched "IMAP" support for all free clients. 
The first thing you need to do is open your Mail program (The one on your dock at the bottom of the screen). Then click Mail>Preferences> Then click the + sign in the bottom left hand corner.
Put in your name, your yahoo email account (Example AKeech@yahoo.ca) and password. Uncheck Automatically setup my account and click next.
Click the drop down box that says POP and choose IMAP. Replace the info under incoming mail server with imap.next.mail.yahoo.com. Click next.
Check the SSL box and click next again.
Under description put yahoo Replace the information in Outgoing email server with smtp.next.mail.yahoo.com. Put in your email address (remember the @yahoo) and password one more time and click continue. Click continue again, confirm your information and click create.
Your done and your email is good to go.
