    I cannot get Yahoo Mail to work in iPhone 5. Still works fine on my 4, but it either won't accept my password (which I'm entering correctly) or it says Yahoo Server Unavailable. Been this way for several hours. I've heard of others having the same issue. Anyone have the same issue and were able to fix it?

    I got my yahoo account to work by removing it from the list of email accounts, closing the mail application, and then adding my Yahoo email account back in.

    Hopefully that process works for some others

    I have two Yahoo accounts, both were fine. But my daughter inherited my 4S and she couldn't sign in this afternoon. We forgot abut it and she just tried again and it was fine.

    I had that problem a while back, after an App update it worked fine, not sure what caused it... You could try a complete restore, but I'm sure it is just app related...
