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?

Yes. iOS 6. I don't use push.

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

I did what you said and now the inbox is empty. See attached.
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.

My problem is back again now.
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
