There was another thread about some Yahoo server issues. I also had problems with them and followed the instructions and it worked fine. Basically you delete the account and set up as new but so it as other not as a Yahoo account. I'llsee if I can find it.

Ok here it is http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1450932

On your iPhone 5, go to "Settings"
- iCloud
- Storage Backup
- Manage Storage
- Backup (delete all of your old iphone backups)

Now you should be able to add your Yahoo mail with no problems...this is what worked for me.

Good Luck!
