    Default How do I stop annoying notifications that it can't sign into Yahoo mail?

    Whenever I leave a wifi zone and the phone switches to mobile data I get annoying notification messages/bong from the stock email app that it "can't sign in to Yahoo mail". If I follow the notification it says the username/password is wrong which is obviously crap because it has no trouble getting mail over wifi. Grrr.

    Every version of that app since Gingerbread has given me some type of problem. Try the Yahoo mail app. I was using that for a while but am now testing the MyMail app so I can integrate all my non gmail addresses in one app.

    Welcome to the forums. You can disable notifications in each app. Here is how: [GUIDE] How to Disable Apps
    You should see a check box that says show notifications. Uncheck it.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    I see this problem when I'm tethering a Nexus device (N7 '12) to my N4's wi-fi hotspot over T-mobile. Perhaps your configuration is similar.

    From this condition, I surmise that there's some proxy somewhere on the way to android.imap.mail.yahoo.com that's interfering with it when tethering is done. ​

    Did I solve your problem? Hit the Thanks button. Was I just a nuisance? Sorry, can't bat .400 every day.

    What? Is there a thread describing this known issue with the stock email app? I am seeing the Can't Sign-in problem on LTE, and occasionally on Wifi.

    I've had a lot of the same problems with yahoo and I'm about done with them! I've had to change my password a few times and this last time they would not accept 5 of my passwords I use. I barely remember those 5, I'm not about to find another. With that said, I have been looking for new email accounts and haven't found any I like. Does anybody have any they would suggest? I started at Inbox account, but found out they don't have an app!?!

    Yeeha, apparently android.imap.mail.yahoo.com and android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com don't play well with others. Heck with them.

    Let me fix this for you:
