About a week ago, my Yahoo! email randomly stopped being sent to my phone. I can email out through the account, but push never works and manually checking email throught that account only works every once in a while (gmail works fine.) Anybody have similar issues or suggestions?

Same issues here. Couldn't figure out how to resolve it and just made a new Gmail account to use.

Well, I deleted the account, re-added it, then synched each folder individually by tapping on it from the phone (not sure why I had to do this) then I deleted all the messages from the my inbox online. Push now seems to work again.

So is it still working? i have had several issue where it quits working. i will delete the account from my iPhone and it seems to work fine for maybe a day, then just quits. Just about ready to give up, and go back to use my .Mac account. Having it check every 15 or 30 minutes I get my mail faster then the 'push' email from Yahoo!

Yahoo Mail as setup via my iPhone has yet to work for me consistently. I can sometimes send mail but can NEVER receive it. It just does the Connecting.....Checking Mail..... forever. I even tested it last night by turning off the screen lock and seeing how long it would go. It knows no end.

I have had a few other serious issues with my iPhone and will be exchanging it this weekend so I guess it could just be me. Mine bricked on me the second day I had it and it was worthless until I got it to iTunes, downloaded a 91MB firmware file, installed that, fully restored it and started over.

...trying to enjoy it...

Since I have removed all other email accounts on my iPhone and just use Yahoo, push seems to work much, much better. I only wish I could change the reply-to address that is uses as I hate having a @yahoo.com account.

Not sure why Apple doesn't do push with their .Mac accounts, although maybe this will be coming soon.

I don't think adding or deleting accounts is the solution. I have done this over and over and I have a Yahoo account that just will NOT receive email.

What is weird is that I created a brand new Yahoo Mail account, added that one (on top of 3 Gmail accounts, a Yahoo account and my .mac account) and that NEW Yahoo Mail account can send and receive.

I did some tests today and it seems, for me, that my .mac account is the fastest at sending and receiving.

I tried using Yahoo Help but it is WORTHLESS and I was eventually forwarded to some ATT site that has NOTHING to do with my issue.

I really may be done with Yahoo, especially with that BS advertising they put as your signature..

FINALLY!

Solved it.

So here it is.. and how adding and deleting the accounts on your iPhone may actually be the culprit.

I went digging through ALL of my settings in my Yahoo Mail account and in my...
Account Information,
Partner Links (bottom right of screen),
Manage Account Links,

This takes you to Account Sign-In settings and mine showed TWO currently activated. I removed both of them and then sent myself an email from my .mac account to the Yahoo Mail account that WAS NOT receiving email.....AND I JUST GOT IT!

You should only have one "Activated".

Stoked to have solved this.

If you are having trouble I recommend checking out this section of your Yahoo Mail account online.

I just sent an email from Gmail to the "problem" Yahoo account and an email from the "problem" Yahoo account to my .mac address and BOTH of them worked.

Back in businesss even though I still trust Gmail more... too bad it is not push..

Ok, now something weird. I went into the "new" Yahoo account and this "Activated" thing was still there.

I went back into the "old" Yahoo account that was not working but now is and ALL of the options I outlined above are not in that screen. The link at the bottom right in that account is now gone..

Whatever Yahoo, just keep sending and receiving!
