My iphone is not connecting to Yahoo Business mail incoming server. I have checked the address, the host name (, 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 "" 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.

    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.
