    I have a problem receiving new Yahoo mail. Basically at the moment, the Iphone seems to be stuck in late September and no emails since then are displaying.
    I have tried deleting the account and entering the details afresh but it just loaded up the emails from September again!
    And I definitely have emails from October, since I can see them fine in the web yahoo mail. Sending is fine from the iphone.
    I've contacted yahoo mobile email help but they're asleep or something, clearly. For about three days.:rolleyes:

    Any ideas?

    Any answers yet?

    Did you receive any response on how to fix this problem? I am in the same predicament. When I add a new yahoo account it works, but my regular yahoo account will not work.

    I didn't receive any response :( . But I did manage to solve it myself.

    Basically, it's to do with the country setting in yahoo mail. Set it to the US with the Account settings on the webmail interface. Then new mails do appear. Only thing is, you're gonna have to do something with the mails that have been downloaded over the past few days/weeks - put them in another folder. Otherwise they end up at the top all the time.

    Let me know if that doesn't make sense - reading it back it doesn't make a hell of a lot!
