I just got the iphone 5 and I'm trying to sync my yahoo email.  After typing in my password it says yahoo server is unavailable.  Anyone else have this problem?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

    I have this same problem with yahoo and gmail is saying server imap.gmail has incorrect username/password.  Everything is entered correctly on multiple iPhones and to no avail.  It will let me enter email addresses that i have on another iPhone of mine and those work fine.  Just adding a new email wont work through it.  It seems to me to be a Apple issue?!?!

    I have the same problem. I had been trying all day to set up my mailing account. It said yahoo service no available and try again later. That's suck. Anybody have any idea ?

    My iphone working is fine. Just can not sync Yahoo calender to my iCalender on my Macbook Pro. Is said

    " The Server responded with an error.

     

    The URL https://caldav.calendar.yahoo.com/principals/users/xxxxxxx@att.net///caldav.calendar.yahoo.com/principals/users/xxxxxxx@att.net/ encountered HTTP error 404. Make sure the URL is correct.

    I have the same problem on my iPhone5. It started (noticed) on Nove 18, becaue I don't have any yahoo mail coming in.I only saw the spinning wheel and indicating "downloading 1 of xx mail" After a couple of minutes, the spinning wheel wasgone, and no mail was downloaded. Other mails (gmail, and my work email) work fine. Anyone has fixed the problem and how? Thanks.

    YES.  Very frustrating. There is a posted work around where you set up your account by selecting Other under mail in settings and insert you email in and out info . This seems to work for awhile, but not always.

     

    I have not seen an official Apple reponse or fix.
