iPhone 4 Yahoo mail problem

On my 3G the mail would push just fine. I cannot get yahoo email to push at all on the 4. I have to manually search for it. What gives?

Same here. I've been using Gmail because Yahoo email won't "push" anymore, really hoping they'd fix it (either Yahoo or Apple).

I have the same issue with mine also. It used to work with my 3G also but not with my 4.

Make sure fetch isn't set to "manual" (use check every 15 minutes) even if you have push on, then reboot the phone.

Why should that matter? The issue is with push, and fetching is only when push is off or unavailable. Even if push is failing and fetch is making up for it by fetching data every 15, 30, or 60 minutes, the point is that push isn't working properly. I want my mail delivered instantly, via push.

Basially Yahoo email users on iPhone 4 (on my end) don't get notified right away if they had a new incoming email, unlike before. Now we have to manually check our inbox, by tapping the Mail app, for new incoming emails. Before this was done flawlessly, emails were just "pushed" instantly, not manually fetched even though the setting for Yahoo was on push.

It's a known bug within Yahoo that causes mail not to work when it's set to "manual." I wanted to confirm that it's not the source of the problem.

Also, go to Settings > Mail > Fetch New Data > Advanced and ensure it's set to Push.

This problem existed ever since the original iPhone 2G was introduced. Steve Jobs mentioned in his keynote that Yahoo mail has push mail integrated but never worked in reality. I have yet to receive a push from my yahoo mail ever.

You can try third party apps that provide push notifications for yahoo mail. But the only one I know of is IM+. Even the most versatile mail pusher app like Mail Notifier doesn't provide Yahoo mail push. There ought to be a technical reason for the exclusion.

I see, I changed it to 15. Hours later I checked my desktop and noticed 3 emails. No notification on my iphone. They appeared after manually checking the app.

I received push mail on my 3G. I rarely had a problem and the mail was as reliable as MobileMe. There is an issue with the 4 and yahoo for sure. I hope it gets fixed.

This problem has been around for a long time. I had this problem when I first got my 3G and then after a couple of months it started working again. Now for the last 2 months I have had this problem (with my 3G), and it is now continuing with my iPhone 4 ... I don't think it's an Apple problem, but rather Yahoos server issue.

strange because i have yahoo emails come through even though I have it set to manual with push off. If i want to check email, i'll check it. I don't want mine to push or fetch but it does it anyway!

Yeah, it is not a simple settings issue. I have tried it all.

I agree. I've had a Yahoo email account on three different iPhones since 2007, and it's never reliably pushed. Sometimes it pushes and sometimes it doesn't. At first, Yahoo was the only push email for the iPhone, so I wasn't sure if the problem was on Apple or Yahoo's end. Now that there's other push options that all seem to work well, it's obvious that the problem is with Yahoo's servers.

What does the mail.app symbol look like? How so I turn it off to ensure push works?

I think its an iOS issue cos since I upgraded to 4.0 and later my push has not been working properly on my 3G. It used to work just fine before upgrading to iOS4

I 'had' the same issue coming from iPhone 3G--'restoring' from its data. But I tried the following and I have had NO problem since (knock on wood):

In the settings, try "reset" (the first one, the one that doesn't erase anything).

The first "reset" under "General" in "Settings"?
