    I've moved on...


    I've been migrating my e-mail to iCloud for over a month now.  Just set yahoo to forward to iCloud and all of these problems go away.


    Putting this issue and the constant bad news from Yahoo in the press together, you really start to get the feeling that Yahoo is not long for this world.

    Good for you!


    I have been thinking about migrating. I have used Yahoo! for more than 15 years!

    I reported that my yahoo push email hasn't been working a few weeks ago.  Today it started working again.  I received all the apple email followups pertaining to this thread so far, and a couple other emails this morning.  I even received three apple messages while typing this message.  I checked the time stamp and all looks good.  I hope it stays fixed because it's annoying as **** when it's not.


    A couple weeks ago, I tried the add/delete account thing but it didn't work.  I didn't expect it to work anyways.  The dude at the AT&T store claimed to not hear of this issue, which doesn't surprise me.  They're just interested in selling stuff.  I'm using the AT&T iPhone 4s running 5.0.1.  I didn't think going to 5.1.1 would make a difference if it was a yahoo issue.


    I'll post a followup later if push fails by the end of the day.

    Today i have recevied my new iPhone (apple care)

    I have start with a new iPhone not a backup

  • LauraMackie Level 1 (15 points)

    It really is such a joke.  Mine doesn't work more than it works, and I sent yahoo an email abot this months ago receiving that canned response that their engineers are working on it.  Yeah right!   I've given up on the issue.  Gmail doesn't push either though so it makes me wonder if it really is an apple issue.

  • Overt1 Level 1 (0 points)

    My gmail is working fine.  It's just Yahoo is kinda wonky cause it needs a workaround with the dummy account to make it work.  That said, my Yahoo mail is still pushing normally with the dummy account.   For those whose Yahoo still doesn't work with a dummy account, try adding another one.  I'm not sure if that'll work at all, but I'm just tossing ideas out there.

    Gmail is not designed to push out of the box like yahoo is. It worked fine for years. iCloud push works perfect also. Read the 20+ and you'll find it's obviously a yahoo issue.

    I have this problem with my Iphone 4, but never with my Ipad 2. I have found that if I turn off the phone completely (not just turning the screen off) and restart my phone, emails will be push to my Iphone typically for 4-5 days. Thereafter the emails will not be pushed again unless I repeat the process. Not sure why I only have this problem with my Iphone and not Ipad. The settings are the same.

    i picked up the issue after upgrading to IOS 5.1.1 and yahoo's email issues on 6/19.  I manage an IT dept so I'm not some country bumpkin (no offense inteneded) Telling me to check my settings and reboot isn't really going to solve anything when i've checked them a dozen times  Apple's support response is weak at best and Yahoo's well there is a reason Google is kicking their butt.


    I also have Gmail, Hotmail, Windows Live and MS exchange accounts goign to my phone and they are working without issue.


    Pretty much tried same as everyone else. i've nuked and restored phone, email accounts blah blah blah...... getting various errors including


    can't connect to server

    wrong password not responding and

    wrong password logging into apple.imap etc


    every once in a while things sync up (like about 10 hours ago)


    I have a sneaking suspicision that the trust relationship between and the actual yahoo mail servers is borked. Would explain some of the errors. I've seen similar type stuff with Exhange between 2 domains.


    Perhaps if anyone could get through to Apple and/or Yahoo's support engineers they could have them look at it.


    other than that I'm open to any other suggestions people have. Yes my phone is a dinosaur Iphone3G - but it worked fine till i updated the IOS and yahoo mail went down last week for a while 

  • LauraMackie Level 1 (15 points)

    I am so sick of this issue.  I've been having the issues you describe since yesterday, plus it takes forever to send an email.  I don't understand why something that's used as much as yahoo mail, ipads and iphones, is STILL not working smoothly after one year!  And it doesn't matter what email provider because I've got gmail also and the phone reacts the same way with gmail.  This makes me suspect that its totally an apple issue.


    I've been having problems with the mail app not pushing, wrong passwords, emails not sending on and off since I joined the droves in purchasing my ipad and iphone.  I'm so tired of it, in fact, that my next purchase just may be android.

  • Alexpdx Level 1 (0 points)

    I was having the same issue a few weeks ago on both my ipad and iphone 3. However, last week it started pushing again for me.


    Not sure why some people are having issues and some are not.

  • LauraMackie Level 1 (15 points)

    Mine goes back and forth but the problems outweigh the good times, that's for sure.  I just don't get why this can't be resolved!  I'm going to ditch the iphone in a few years and go with an android.  It's just not worth this aggrevation.

  • LauraMackie Level 1 (15 points)

    Oh ok...I just read back on this thread and found that gmail is not supposed to push like yahoo. yahoo's issue it is!  I wish we could storm yahoo's building and have an "Occupy Yahoo" gathering!

  • Romad63 Level 1 (0 points)

    good luck with that Laura....i'm still trying to find a way to get through to yahoo's tech support. Even if we did it will be Yahoo blames Apple, Apple blames Yahoo....nothing ets done and WE suffer. Only think i know for sure is i've had my iphone since 09 and no issues till i upgraded to 5.1.1.  since then my yahoo sync is gone, GPS has become a joke (showed me in South Africa when i live in upstate NY). I've also noticed its much slower and battery life isn't the same. 5.1.1 is buggy i don't care what anyone says......though apple will never admit it.

  • LauraMackie Level 1 (15 points)

    I just filled out the customer care form yet again and submitted it to Yahoo.
