    It has to be some wrong information you're inserting, because it looks very easy to set-up here.

    I was able to receive yahoo mail on my iPhone in the mail app all morning. Now, it won't download this one account to the phone. I can access it fine in safari. I tried a hard reset. Still nothing. I deleted my password and reentered it. It verified ok but still nothing. I'm at a loss. Please help.

    I used to have this issue once a month now every two weeks I delete the account off and reinstall it. I still can't get push to work but that has been happening for a year now.

    Ios6?

    I think there lies your problem. One of the many reasons I haven't gone to ios6 yet.

    When you deleted it off did you do a hard reset before adding it back on?

    Shotgunning but worth a try. Can't get worse right? If able to access like you said through safari or desktop change your password also.

    Yahoo servers I'm sure. Lame.
    Same reason push will randomly start working and two days later not.

    Go into your spam, take 1 message and put it into your inbox! That's what I just did and it made all my emails show up! I did this the other night too, same result gotta be a bug
