The yahoo mail bug from a few months ago seems to be back.
Not getting pushed at all now for a few days.
Anyone have any tricks or tips to get it working?
Thanks

Same thing here. I did a Google search and it seems to be a widespread problem. It isn't universal, as my husband isn't having any trouble with his iPhone and Yahoo account. After trying deleting my Yahoo account in Settings and reloading it several times, I finally just gave up and forwarded my Yahoo email to my .me account. That works, but now I'm getting two of every email.

Yesterday someone reported on the Apple forums that Yahoo is now saying it is a problem on their end that they are aware of and they have engineers working on it. It's still not fixed, so I wonder how hard they're working...

The problem isn't limited to Yahoo. I am having the same problem on my Yahoo/ATT account and my Comcast accounts. My iCloud emails are still being pushed through with notifications.

I've tried everything I can think of and nothing solves the problem.

None of my email accounts are pushing. It's very annoying! This needs resolved.

Apple or these mail hosts needs to issue a statement!!!

My Me account emails are fine, but my sister informed me that as of yesterday that her emails were definitely not pushing.

Funny, mine started doing it Saturday after I did a restore on my phone at the Apple store trying to get a battery issue sorted out. I thought it had something to do with that but I guess not. Oh yeah and just to confirm my yahoo account is definitely not pushing.

This is getting old with Yahoo. It may be more widespread this time but this seems to happen quite often.

My .me account is pushing almost immediately; I hear the tone on my Mac, followed within seconds with the tone on my iPhone. Yahoo is STILL not working. Because I forwarded my Yahoo to my .me account I am getting my emails pushed. I am also getting TWO of everything, which is annoying.

What I find particularly odd is that my husband's Yahoo email is still pushing to his iPhone without delay or problems. WTF?

same thing happen to me too. i was wondering why hasn't anyone emailed me at all for all the stuff i'm selling on craigslist:D so i signed in to check and indeed i do get emails and turns out yahoo hasn't been pushing emails to me.
i tried to do all the configurations and trouble shooting then i just gave up and set it to fetch every hour to get by for now.;)

in the meantime while i was trying to fix my yahoo, i also test my hotmail account and that push really fast, just as fast as an instant messaging. but then right the next day when i tested it again just for giggles it stop pushing too. then i also set my hotmail to push as well.:D oh well fetching will have to work for now.

Pushed Once in 4 days!

I've had it with Yahoo, Apple, Verizon...the whole bunch! Everyone blames the other guy. We paid for the phone, we continue to pay for the "service", and are ignored. I've deleted and added yahoo mail at least 20 times in the last 2 days. Anyone know Who can be contacted and how??
