    Same problem here! So I deleted the account in hopes that re-adding it would fix the problem. It didn't. When I logged into my Yahoo webmail, the OS asked if I wanted to add it to my list of accounts, so I said yes... And it's still not appearing in my Mail.

    All of my mail accounts from POP to IMAP are having similar issues with connecting and retaining passwords.  To get them to work, i need to reset my router while the Mail app is open.

    If you had read the Terms of Use you agreed to when you came here you would know that this is a user-to-user support site, there is no one here from the Apple support team. Call AppleCare if you want to talk to someone from the support team.

     

    But since you are having a problem with a Yahoo email account you would be far better served contacting Yahoo. Both my Apple ID and Gmail accounts were and are working fine since updgrading so this would not appear to be an Apple issue. Yahoo has made some security changes lately that cause problems when make changes to a computer or mobil device.

    I am having the same problem. I tried deleting key chain passwords.  It works for a while until I hide Mail app. Then it happens again.  It would ask for my password.  When I check key chain, it shows that my password is entered but it seems that mail is not using it well.

    I just found a solution.  Try this:

     

    1)  Delete the Yahoo account from Mail

    2)  Open System Preferences, then choose "Mail, Contacts and Calendars"

    3)  Select your Yahoo account on the left and click the minus button on the bottom to delete the account

    4)  Press the plus button and re-add your Yahoo account, making sure you check the Mail box

    5)  Go to Mail and your account should have been successfully added
