    I recently had to change my yahoo password and ever since I've been receiving these annoying pop up messages saying "Yahoo mail failure to sign-in".
    I've read a few forums online and seen quite a few people frustrated with this same issue but so far any fixs that I've tried don't work.

    I've shut down and re-signed in, changed the in and outgoing server to android.imap etc but that wouldn't work either.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks Loz

    The failure to sign in would be caused by an incorrect password. Other mail settings are not the issue.

    I am getting the same error. I changed from password security to one that dings my phone for approval when I log on to a new machine.

    The problem is that in order to set up Yahoo Mail on my phone, it requires a password which I no longer have.

    So I get the dings on my phone for approval, but I can't check mail on my phone because I don't have a password.

    Not sure what to do.

    You need to retrieve your Yahoo password. Try this Forgot my yahoo id and password [Solved]

    FYI: Yahoo Accounts have been compromised due to hackers.. If you're unable to login, and you've tried resting your password.. then your account could have fallen victim to this 500 Million user accounts hacked attacks.

    If you are not using the Yahoo app to view your Yahoo email, you may need a "special app" password to get access. See the Yahoo email web site for details.
