i am trying to setup my wife's brand new iphone 5 yahoo email and i am having issues. It should be simple but it keeps giving me problems. When I choose the Yahoo! email it goes to the next step and preloads the server info. I then enter the password and touch NEXT. Then it tells me the Yahoo! server is unavailable. I checked on my laptop and on my other iphone 4s but the server is working fine. I even chatted with a Yahoo! rep and confirmed my pw is good and the server is working fine. I confirm the server is working because we can see her Yahoo! emails on our laptop with no problem. Also, the iphone 5 keeps asking for the Yahoo! pw every minute. *****!  Shouldn't have this problem. I didn't have this issue setting up her ipad 3 and my iphone 4s.  What am I doing wrong? or not doing right?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1
