    My Yahoo account, which was being synced using the included email app, yesterday decided to stop syncing. Whenever I tried to force it to sync it would just get stuck trying to sync. I thought maybe it was a problem with my connection so I downloaded the yahoo mail app and was able to connect without nay issues.

    Is anyone having the same problem? Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    I did a soft reset, and would prefer not to have to do a factory reset.


    Thanks in advance.

    After I enter my account info and select next, the status bar moves a little and I get a message saying it failed

    Apparently Yahoo had some issues yesterday with their sync feature for Android phones, at least with some of their servers. They claim that it's working again.

    I switched to the Yahoo app a while ago because the default messaging app would stop receiving my emails every couple of days unless I power cycled my phone.

    Thanks for the info. I thought that happened. I have the same problem you have, but prefer the options the native app gives me vs the yahoo app.

    Does know of a good alternative email app that allows for several accounts to be synced together?

    When somebody asks about an Android email app, the first place to look is probably K-9 Mail.

    I actually just deleted my Yahoo Mail account off my phone thinking it was causing a purple blinking light and then tried to reinstall it and it is telling me also that it failed. I am going to just download it from the market and see if it works that way.
