    Default Yahoo account not working since last Thursday

    Does anybody else has a Yahoo email account on their native email client? If yes, does it still working? Mine stopped receiving email since Thursday. I can send email but in inbox says "No mail". I tried deleting the account, restarting the phone and re-adding the account and no use. All the settings are correct, no errors upon setup, but still can't retrieve email. I installed K9 and works on it. Only the native mail app gives me grief. Help?

    Awesome it's not just me! I have an Evo with a Sense 3.0 rom, and my Email hasn't been syncing with the Mail app since last week (probably Thursday). it kept on saying I didn't have any new messages. So I tried removing the account and adding it and now it says I have nothing at all in my inbox.

    Yahoo made a security change to their server. If you use the yahoo mail application in the market, that will resolve your issue.

    ya this would be a problem, but if you absolutely need to have your yahoo mail, may I suggest trying the Yahoo Mail app until it starts working again?
    If I've made a difference, please make sure to thank me.

    Hey guys I just went to mail options on my Yahoo! Account and under the POP n forwarding tab, it says I need to upgrade to Yahoo! Mail Plus in order to receive mail forwarded. So, there is ur answer.

    The app totally blows, is limited n drains ur battery. Do what I've been doing n check the mobile web mail site on ur phone. Sucks but oh well.

    Not trying to troll or anything, but just switch to Gmail. It provides more features than the paid Yahoo! Mail, but for free. I left Yahoo! roughly 4 years ago and haven't looked back.

    You don't have to have a premium account to get the mail on your phone. It's not a forwarded email, the app logs in your account and pulls the emails on the handset. Plus, it worked on every handset I owned (including this one) until last Thursday. More than that, this happens only with the native email app, I installed K9 app and Yahoo mail works as supposed to be. But I don't like K9 and I want to be able to use the native client. And yes, Yahoo's app sucks. Battery drainage and lack of customization. So I posted the thread to see if other users are experiencing this. Looks like a lot does. About switching to Gmail, that will be a lot of headache for me. Of course I have a Gmail account, but I've been using Yahoo since 1998 as my main email address. I can't even track down how many banks, accounts, people, etc. have my email address. To change it will be like 6 or more months process.

    You can always try using Maildroid. I've been using it for several months and it has ALWAYS handled Yahoo mail better than any other app including K9 and the HTC stock email. They had issues like many others this last week, but they've since killed the "yahoo bug" now and it is working great. I use the Maildroid Pro app, but the free version works just as well. My version has had NO issues this last week but my wife's Samsung Fascinate has been having issues with Yahoo since last week as well and is now fixed.

    The best thing, by far, about Maildroid is the developer's response. I have posted this many times in other threads but seriously, if you have an issue send him an email (maildroiddev at gmail) and he responds usually THAT DAY. That was huge to me. I found Maildroid to receive yahoo mails quicker and with less hassle than K9. K9 seems to pull Yahoo mail where as Maildroid is set up as an Idle Push so most emails come immediately (not quite as good as true push but better on battery than pull).

    Anyway, good luck. Hope this helps.

    I've been having the same problem and I'm a Yahoo Mail Plus costumer.

    When I setup the account manually I set it up as a POP and it worked just fine.

    When I added the account again as an IMAP dead.

    Wow... been having that issue with customers all day today. In every situation, I informed them about the Yahoo Mail app and they were satisfied and liked it better, but it has been all HTC devices, not the sensation.

    I will test out Yahoo on my Nexus S 4G and Atrix tonight as I always use the app myself.

    Try this....on your Sensation or Android device delete the funky Yahoo! account. Then go online and reset your mail password at Yahoo! and finally add back the Yahoo! account on your device with the new password. This worked for me with my old Evo when this happened and I just did this yesterday when the same account stopped working on my Sensation. I had instant success both times...just need a new a password.

    Any evidence to support the claim that the Yahoo mail app from the market is a battery drainer? I've been using it for months and haven't noticed any unusual wake locks nor have I ever seen the app on the battery usage list like games and the screen and what have you... Am I missing something? It also seems to support true push which should ideally be more efficient than any IMAP polling.

    As far as the app itself, yes it's very lacking in options... I hate that they made it so that deleting or moving a message while it's open automatically takes you to the next one (i prefer getting kicked back to inbox, as it used to work). Other than that I don't have a lot of complaints since I do zero message composing from that app, I just use my Yahoo address for bills and like shopping newsletters, forum thread subscriptions, etc. I use Gmail for personal stuff, any actual conversation, photos, etc.

    Yahoo's app does beat Gmail when it comes to attachments imo, it lets you download any kind of file and usually does it quicker. /shrug Gmail forces a preview of some files, ignores others, etc. At least you can get around Gmail's sending restrictions by attaching stuff from within a file explorer like EStrong.

    Edit: I assumed it supported some sort of push method (since FB notification emails were instant) but I see there's quite a lot of complaints about it's battery use (and yet it still has a 4 star rating...), is there any way I can see this drain for myself besides uninstalling and hoping I notice the difference? They couldn't possibly have it polling every few minutes by default as people claim could they, that just seems insane... I think I originally downloaded it to get access to my mail folders & search functionality, neither of which the stock mail app was doing... Is this something K9 can do?

    I had the same issue with my Yahoo! account on my Blackberry (still waiting for the move to Android). The issue ended up being related to Yahoo! Mail upgrading. On my laptop, I was prompted to set-up a new password. Then I had to just go into my account settings on my phone and update the password there. Once I did that - et voila - my POP mail was back in business. Figured I would share because it doesn't seem to be a phone specific, nor an OS specific issue.

    I tried that, no result. Like I said, it works with other email clients, just not with stock android client. I think it's time for me to contact HTC. Thanks for reply guys.

    I'm having the same problem with my Evo 3D. When I set up my Yahoo! account in the HTC mail app, it connected fine but didn't show any messages. I can send fine and browse my folders but can't see any messages in any of them. I'm using maildroid now, but would prefer to use the stock HTC mail app if this issue gets sorted out.

    For what it's worth, I added my wife's Yahoo! account which is much newer (and has far fewer messages) and it worked fine.

    I have been down since Thursday on my EVO 3D. Here is my response from yahoo:

    Hello Chris,

    Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Mobile.

    I understand that you have recently stopped receiving mail in the
    default mail application on your Android device, though the messages
    still arrive in your Yahoo! account. I have given the information you
    provided to our Mobile Product Team. Investigating and resolving this
    issue may take some time.

    Your ticket number for this issue is xxxxx. Please refer to this
    number in any future correspondence regarding this issue.

    You don't need a plus account because we are going to fix this.

    It appears that both the Yahoo! Mail application and the Yahoo! Mobile
    Mail page are unaffected by this issue. As a work around I recommend you
    visit:



    You can either access your email directly from here, or download the
    application via the link presented on this page while we work to resolve
    this issue for you. You can also download the application via the
    Android Market.

    I have been using the K-9 app to get my yahoo mail. Its way better that the battery sucking yahoo mail app.
