    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

    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!
