Yahoo mail suddenly stopped working
I've gone thru the FAQS and rechecked that all of my settings were correct. I keep getting an error message that states Authenication Failed, please verify username/password.
If anyone knows a quick fix I would be extremely grateful.

It seems some peoples are working fine. The girl that sits next to me has an INC as well and all is working just fine on hers. I of course compared everything and all accounts are set up the same. Something has to be up. I have been singing this phones praises for almost a year. Hell three people in my office bought an INC because of all my kudos about this phone. If no one has a fix it looks like I need to call big red.

Mine is not working as well.
I accidentally erased all my E-mail accounts on my DINC yesterday when I trying to free up phone memory. (another issue) I was able to reset TWO of my E-mail accounts (WIndows Live and my Exchange Server), but no luck with my Yahoo and Centurylink... Still says failed, authentication etc..
I can log into these Accounts via the computer, but my phone will not allow it.

Found the fix! It worked for me!
I had the identical problem with the Yahoo mail Login Failed error starting 2 days ago after working for a year. Found this answer in an HTC forum, and it worked for me.
Use server settings as outlined above, but set Security type to SSL
Port will auto enter the correct port
