    My iPad with 5.1.1 suddenly stopped working. I wonder if Apple did something to cause the problem.

    What does this have to do with Yahoo! Mail? And what exactly stopped working?

    C DM: Thanks for responding. My query was badly stated. This is my situation.

    I have several devices (a PC, a mini iPad with a modern iOS, and this older iPad with iOS version 5.1.1) all sending and receiving Yahoo emails on a common account (common user id and password). In late October the older iPad stopped receiving and sending email messages --- while continuing to work fine in displaying URLs from the internet, downloading , etc.

    I was/am asking whether anyone can tell me whether Yahoo (not Apple, as I mistakenly posted) has made some change that now disallows use of Yahoo Mail by iPads with the dated iOS.

    If others with older iOS <can still> use Yahoo mail then I will look for other causes of my problem. ---wdc

    Have you tried removing the Yahoo! account and adding it again on that device to see if that might work?
