I cannot get the iPad to connect to my Pop account - pop.smallbiz.yahoo.com.

When I try, I get the error:
-----------------
Cannot Get Mail
The connection to the server
"pop.bizmail.yahoo.com" failed
-----------------

I have it setup correctly. If I use the same settings on a Windows machine using Outlook express, it works fine.

Here are my settings on the iPad:

(assuming name, address, username, and password are all correct)
Host Name: pop.bizmail.yahoo.com
Use SSL: ON
Authentication: Password
IMAP Path Prefix: /
Server Port: 995

    Note: Outgoing mail works fine. I can send from the iPad and get them on my Windows machine.

    Outgoing Mail Server settings:
    SMTP: smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com
    Use SSL: ON
    Authentication: Password
    Server Port 465

    Havign the same issue. my settings are identical on my iphone. but ipad, i can't sync with pop.bizmail.yahoo.com . I can with regular yahoo mail as well as gmail. but not bizmail. Bug?

    Ditto here- ipad email connectivity to pop.bizmail.yahoo.com accounts is a BUST.

    I also have confirmed settings with my mac tower and MS Entourage- works like a champ there.

    Steve Jobs- get the tech guys on it (and add Flash at the same time so I can do crosswords)

    I have exactly the same issue. I have it working fine on my MacBook pro, but no way on my iPad.

    Are you sure you set it up as a POP3 account? The fact that you are showing an IMAP path prefix sounds like you've set it up as an IMAP account, but if the server is called its pop.bizmail.yahoo its a POP3 account.

    If you set the account up by hand, the choice between POP3 and IMAP comes right at the start of the set-up process I think.

    Same problem here, following all the steps and using POP. No mail can be received from pop.bizmail.yahoo.com on iPad. Very frustrating.
