I have my iCloud email, and gmail set up and there is never a glitch, why does my yahoo continue to pop up and ask me to reenter my password, i have erased and re entered the account twice now and it always happens, i even saved the password in the keychain, why does yahoo not work.  it never has this problem on my iPhone.


iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    Hello! To me it is exactly the same as you! I have also an account of icloud and Yahoo! and since the last review of Lion began to fail storing the password for Yahoo mailaccount. (The strange thing is that the iPod / iPhone / iPhone 5.1 is not happening ...)

    Hopefully Apple fixes this problem soon!

    I'm having the same problem. It's unbearable. How do I fix it? I've deleted it and added it twice and it does not work. All my other accounts are fine it's just Yahoo!
