    It appears that my yahoo email is not pushing. It’s been like that for some time, but I learned to live with it. My mail setting are…

    · Fetch New Data = Push

    · Yahoo set to Fetch (only options there are Fetch and Manual; I would of expected to see a Push option?)

    · Fetch = Every 15 Minutes

    Are my settings correct? Anything else I need to be looking at? I have an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.0.1. TIA!

    Sounds like it's not set to push. You can try removing and re-adding the account perhaps to see if the push option shows up.

    I deleted and re-added my yahoo account a while ago and don't recall seeing the push option, but will try again. Should I delete, reboot then re-add?

    Ok, that worked. The push option is now there. So in theory, yahoo email should now be pushed to me without having to go into the mail app?

    Bumping my old thread...

    I’ve been having problems with my yahoo push email again. I deleted the yahoo account, rebooted, then re-added it and still not seeing a push option for yahoo email. Any ideas what’s going on here?

    iPhone X and running iOS 11.2.5.

    I bailed on the stock app and now use this. Too many problems. Try this.

    I had the same issue and learned that Yahoo didn’t allow push anymore, only option is to fetch ever so often.

    The issue I’m having since three days ago is the email app not able to connect with one of my att.net (Powered by Yahoo) email.

    Yep, no more yahoo push :(

    I had the same issue late yesterday into this afternoon. It’s fine now.
