    Update: this behavior continues in kitkat on Note 3. However, manually setting up the account rather than having the system do it automatically has also done the trick for me, so thanks everyone! It's interesting, because I just used the defaults that were populated by the system during the manual setup, but that seems to have taken care of the problem.

    you setup your yahoo mail via the mobile device using the Yahoo mail app? Or on the desktop.

    I've had a Galaxy since the S3 and have never been able to sync Yahoo as it should be. GMail syncs fine, and when I set up GMail to get my Yahoo mail, that works fine. But it will not sync to the Yahoo mail on my PC. I've tried the stock email program, K9 Mail, and even the Yahoo Mail app. None have worked properly. Even my partner's AOL account will sync with his desktop, for heaven's sake, after all the bad things I have had to say about AOL mail over the years. I have tried all the suggestions in this thread...manual, defaults, etc. I can get my Yahoo mail and read it. I can even send from it on my phone. But there appears to be absolutely no way to get Yahoo mail to sync...if someone has discovered one, please correct me on this.

    If anyone is still having this issue, I went into my settings in the Yahoo mail app and cleared my cache. Issue solved!

    I removed the Yahoo account yesterday and have tried reloading it several times with no success. I keep receiving either a user name/password error or the pop 3 account error.

    Phone goes into VZ in the am to have them manually try and reset the account up.

    Have I missed anything?

    Welcome to Android Central! Did you recently change your Yahoo password? Do you have 2-step authentication turned on for your Yahoo account? If so, turn it off temporarily, then see if you can add your account back to the phone's Email app.

    Ok I figured it out because I was having the same problem some of you guys are having.

    First log in to your email account on your PC. In the top right click the gear icon
    Next, at the bottom there is an "account info" link...click it. It will load in a new page.
    On this new page there are 4 options on the left. Click "account security"
    At the bottom there is an option that says "Manage app passwords"
    This will load a drop down menu box. Where it says "Select your app" click it and select Android mail and click "generate" on the right.

    This generates a password. This is the password you use to log into your yahoo mail app, do NOT use your regular password. So now just access your yahoo mail app on your phone, enter your user name and the password you just generated and boom goes the dynamite.

    I tried this and it works for me. Best of luck future internet searchers!

    The mystery now is why my email just decided to randomly stop syncing in the first place...this device is 6 months old and I had been logging into my email for 6 months with no issues what so ever. I also didn't change my password or make any other changes to my email account (before this happened anyway).

    This is a Yahoo issue.
    Go to your Yahoo account and click the wheel icon and choose account security and allow Apps to access Yahoo Mail and sync your GalaxyS2
    Samsung Customer Support was not able to figure this out and I wasted 30 minutes with their Tech Support.
    Thank you for your post as this was able to help me.

    I have sync enabled on my yahoo email account, but it doesn't seem to sync (deleting from my phone doesn't delete them when I access my acct through my computer, and vice versa). Anyone else notice this? Gmail seems to sync just fine, it's only my yahoo email. I'm wonder if I switched to a 3rd party email app, that would fix this?

    I"ve tried pretty close to every popular email app there is, and it still doesn't work. I just gave up trying. All my other mail syncs just fine.

    There is an email from Yahoo that says users won't be able to login from less secure & older apps. My older phone on the older/generic/stock email app did not login even, was receiving the same info about login error either on server or email. Then I used the suggestion from this thread to add acct on gmail app (login as other acct, shows up as Yahoo anyway) on gmail app and this process worked. I was able to display all personal folders and gmail is processing it. Although using two inboxes and two sets of folders on the same app is a bit confusing, and reading Yahoo mail on gmail formats using the gmail bubbles for the first letter of the sender is visually confusing as well. Better this than nothing or less secure third party app. Given recent Yahoo security breaches better use it on the more advanced and up to date app from gmail. Sadly Yahoo mail app said it is not compatible with my older phone. Great support thread and I also created acct to use the page. Bit annoying but whatever works.
    I can use the old Yahoo on the old phone and with new security features from gmail app. gmail just had a pop-up stating that auto sync was off and I was able to turn it on. Hopefully it will sync now. Whatever works.
