    Default Yahoo mail not syncing

    My yahoo email has not been syncing on my Thunderbolt the past two days. I am not using the application but rather the mail app that came with the phone. Has anyone else been having this problem and if so is there a way to fix this?

    Thanks in advance and this is my first post so the "rude ones" please don't be mean.

    I heard from some friends that use iPhones that Yahoo made changes and you now have to pay for Mail Plus at $20/yr. So, I don't think it is your phone.

    Mine hadn't worked for about a week now. I had to download the actual yahoo app. Whenever I try to redo my mail setup I keep getting invalid user/pw.

    Yahoo has been updating their security servers recently and this has been causing this issue on a number of users devices, I believe they are updating servers by regions and this causes groups of users but not all that may be using those servers for email access, usually its been down a few days and then comes back like normal.

    Same thing here, also Yahoo Mail in of itself seems to delay email. I have received email that was sent four to eight hours earlier. I am going to stop using this service, it has been going downhill for awhile now.

    Have you thought that the Yahoo app goes through a dedicated server where the Android email client transmit the email through a 3rd party client that causes some of the issue with Android not Yahoo email directly.. Check the service application for Android and you will see what I mean...

    That's why I ditched yahoo mail. I cannot see myself paying for a service that almost every other provides for free. Just my opinion
    Its highly likely that this message was sent via my Acer A500 tablet

    Wife has been having this problem with yahoo mail on her droid charge. I deleted the the yahoo account and re added it. That seemed to fix it for the time being.

    Well before I found this thread, I called Verizon on Sat and they new nothing as usual, then I uninstalled and reinstalled my yahoo account, I unrooted and went to MR1 then MR2 then Duh I came here to see if anyone else was having the problem. Won't make that mistake again.

    So I like others went to the market place and download the yahoo mail app, its works great and it gives me notices I have mail.

    Actually it seems much easier to use with all the folders right there verses the account setup version. So I just may stick with this unless someone has some better suggestions?

    Same thing happened to me I downloaded the app and it works PERFECT. I actually like the app better than the stock one.

    I've mentioned this in other threads but the app Maildroid has worked great for me with Yahoo and the developer just fixed that Yahoo issue so everything is working like clockwork. I do like the look of the Yahoo app, but Maildroid allows you to combine all other accounts in one box if you want and handles specifically Yahoo Mail better than any other app that I've tried (including K9). Its Idle Push too so the emails come almost immediately to your phone. And unlike many apps, when you have an issue, you simply contact the developer and he usually responds within hours! That is unheard of support for apps with >250,000 downloads.

    Just a thought. Good luck!

    I do notice several people with issues with Yahoo had the wrong server settings. It is supposed to be this:

    Incoming Server: android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 993
    Use SSL

    Outgoing Server: android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 465
    Use SSL
    Require Log In

    If that fails, try the Y! Mail app.

    My recommendation? Google is a better mail provider in every single way. Why use Yahoo!? Set up your Gmail to retrieve email from your Yahoo! account while transitioning.

    appreciate the settings.
    I gave it a go and it did not resolve the yahoo mail issue.
