Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this, but my Yahoo mail has been working flawlessly since I got my iphone, until yesterday when it seems to hang up on 'checking mail' forever and will not download any new messages. Even weirder, it will download new 'bulk mail' if I prompt it to...has anyone else experience this issue?:(

same iPhone problem

cannot get mail - yes, I am experiencing the same problem with my yahoo-mail -- I've raised the issue with Apple and currently have a replacementphone. am not sure if this is a server issue or a software issue. what is your status? does the problem reappear? I rely entirely on my iPhone for work so this is a bit of a bummer. grateful for any updated feedback from others.

I noticed right after update #1 that yahoo 'push' worked much better and I would receive email within seconds. Since then it's become slower up until yesterday I noticed it went 4 hours with no new mail. This morning I saw that it still had not updated and received mail. I did a manual check/update and it grabbed new mail. Still wasn't working today so I did a reset on the phone and yahoo is back to receiving email almost instantly.

Confused...should I have 'manual' selected for the how often does yahoo check for mail? Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of 'push' email if i was forcing the phone to check every 15 mins? Do I need the yahoo imap prefix in settings and don't I lose folders by doing this?

Same issue here - Yahoo Push doesn't work at all; have to manually check it. Pop works occasionally...but not too reliably

Strange, I have a different sort of Yahoo email issue.

Receiving works fine.
But I cannot send anything from the iPhone. It' pretends it works, there's a progress bar that goes accross the bottom, but no networrk activity takes place, no copy gets stored in Sent Items, and no actual email gets sent.
Bummer.

(Sending works just fine from my gmail account I have configured on the phone, btw.)

Similar Problem

Both my home and Yahoo! accts worked perfectly before the update. Ever since the update, my Yahoo! will only recieve when prompted - it won't check automatically. And sometimes it just doesn't send email i send. It sucks.

Also for my personal POP email with my own domain, it recieves fine but every once in a while it gets hung up on sending and freezes. I shut down, restart, and then it tries to send again. soemtime sit ends up crapping out and other times it sends to identical emails.

Worked better before the update

Mine did not work at first either. Someone told me to turn off WiFi and re-setup my Yahoo Email Account on the iPhone and then Power Reset the iPhone and then connect VIA EDGE. He said you need to connect VIA EDGE the first time. That did the trick for me.

Now from time to time it stops working. I just see it trying to retrieve the mail and just hangs forever. One time a Power Reset of the iPhone got me going again. But most of the time I have to clear my INBOX on Yahoo Web Site to get it going again. Since I have "My Folders" setup, if mail goes into those VIA a Yahoo Server Filter, those do not get Pushed to my Phone. Only the INBOX. For those folders I have to just select them. Since I currently just send a COPY of my mail to Yahoo this so far is not a big problem for me but definitely needs to be fixed.

When I have this intermittant problem I have to login to Yahoo Web Site and clear the email from my INBOX and it starts working again (for a few days). This is a real problem but for now I use it as a COPY of my mail so I am getting by. Hoping for a FIX in 1.1.

Yahoo mail problems

I have not been able to log into my Yahoo mail account over the past few days. I have tried Firefox, Safari, Camino, ... all have the same problem.

I'm running Mac OSx 10.4.10 on PowerPC G5.

I have no problems at all logging in from my PC laptop.

Is anybody experiencing the same? Any recommendations?

Hi,

I have the same computer as you do and I have not had any problems that you are experiencing. I also use Firefox. Make sure Firefox has been updated if you are trying to use the new Yahoo mail Beta. Maybe try rebooting your computer if that hasn't been done already.
