All of a sudden last week I started getting an error message in trying to retrieve email on my iPhone 4 from my Yahoo account. I've made no changes to the settings and have no problems accessing the account on my laptop. Moreover, I have no issues retrieving email from any of my other email accounts. Any suggestions?

Delete the Yahoo account from the mail app and then add it back in and reboot the phone.

Ha! I should have known! "Delete, reinstall and reboot. Always reboot." It's the basic IT prescription that almost always works, as it did in this case, too! Thanks for remaining me. I'm good now.

I've deleted and put back in my Yahoo account multiple times on my iPhone 5 and yet I still have to manually check for mail a lot of the times. But in the morning I wake up to mail.
