My iphone is not connecting to Yahoo Business mail incoming server. I have checked the address, the host name (pop.bizmail.yahoo.com), the user name, and the password and they are all correct. I have tried using server port 995 and 110 and neither one worked. The exact message that I received after trying to check my mail is: Cannot Get Mail- The connection to the server "pop.bizmail.yahoo.com" failed. I have been able to connect just fine in the past and nothing has changed since the last time I was able to check my mail. I am also still able to check that same e-mail account from my computer.

If anyone has any ideas on what the problem may be please help because this one has me puzzled.

G5, iPhone OS 2.x

    Try force-quitting Mail. To force-quit an app, press and hold the sleep/wake button until you see the power-off slider, then release the sleep/wake button and immediately press and hold the home button for ~6 seconds, until you're returned to the home screen.

    I tried it, but it didn't do anything. It just stayed in the mail after the sliding screen went away. I have noticed something else to add to the problem; the mail app on my computer isn't getting the e-mails either and again it is the same issue as the iPhone so I am convinced that it is something with Yahoo, but I can't figure out what.

    I should probably go into a little more detail, what I have is a regular yahoo account with e-mail. To go with this e-mail I have a business e-mail for my website I am hosting through Yahoo. I need to receive the e-mails from that business e-mail address. I am able to log-on to yahoo.com, sign in and get the e-mails from both of the accounts, it would just be a very nice convenience to go to my mail to check it and be able to use my iPhone when I don't have access to my computer.

    I'm hoping somebody out there has an idea of how to fix this because I'm sure that I'm not the first one to go through this.

    I had to delete the account of off the iPhone and set it back up again and it worked fine. I'm not really sure what caused the e-mails to stop coming in, but all I care about is that it works now.

    i've reset the yahoo email account and turned the phone off (hard reset) and still no luck. It sometimes even deletes my password in the account. gmail and exchange server work fine, just not the yahoo. any more suggestions to try?
