    New iPad mini arrived and is almost perfect.

    Only issue is I can't set up my yahoo emails....I continue to get a message saying servers not available. (Going on two days)


    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    I got a Mini yesterday and also have not been able to set up my Yahoo mail. I was thinking it was a Yahoo issue. I guess? Sorry I'm not any help.

    Had the same issue a few weeks ago. Yahoo thought my account was hacked so they locked the account. I got the same errors till I logged into my account on my PC and changed the password.

    Don't bother set up with Yahoo email with any iOS devices. There are so many issues with Yahoo email like asking for password too many times. :apple:

    Never had an issue with my iPad 3. So far I have been able to get one account running after changing password as suggested by iVegas. No luck with any additional account.

    I've never had any major issues with Yahoo, either. It's worked pretty well since the first iPhone for me.

    Any chance you have two factor authentication enabled? You have to generate an application specific password for iOS Mail.

    Thanks. Appreciate it.

    I'm sure that means something to someone. Will check it out. I will ask some of the IT people around work.
