I have been testing my iphone's Yahoo Push email today several times, mostly getting emails pushed in less than 10min other times can take up to an hour. Does anyone out there know what is the real problem is here? Yahoo directs support to Apple, I am waiting on Apple's response. What are others experiencing?

    I gave up on Yahoo Push since several of my outgoing emails vanished. I switched to using POP access (I have a Yahoo Plus account).

    Can you give it a week and respond again? If it really seems to be working again I'll switch back.

    I am having the same problem. I have just realized all the mail i have sent from my iphone since Thursday never arrived. For the last 4 days I cannot send mail using Yahoo Mail imap account. However I can reply to mails and those seem to go through. This is of course very annoying.

    I think it's a real bummer that this doesn't work properly - it can't be counted on. If it was "Google Push" it would be working! Yahoo needs to get their act together if they intend to maintain their #2 position.

    Not just Yahoo.... Apple & Yahoo need to get their acts together if you ask me. Push has -never- worked consistently for me, and I too have experienced lost outbound mail sent from the Yahoo! account. Not the BlackBerry Pearl replacement I'd hoped for from a Push email and email reliability standpoint.

    Fortunately checking my .Mac mail every 5 minutes works reliably and is almost as good as push.

    Still, the silence from both Apple and Yahoo on this issues is deafening!

    Since the minimum time you can set the iPhone to check is 15 minutes I assume you mean you are manually checking every 5 minutes??

    Michael,

    Yes. 15 minutes is what I meant.

    Which I guess means an average wait time of 7.5 minutes before I receive an email unless I check manually.
