No matter how or what I do to configue Yahoo mail in ipad mail setup I get this error saying "apple.imap.mail.yahoo.com" is not responding. Check your network connection and that you entered the correct information in the "incoming mail server" field. Yet I download the yahoo mail app and yahoo mail works fine. Just does not work with and of the settings in the NEW IPAD mail,contacts,calendars setup. I have found this seems to be an issue posted in many forums. Any Ideas..?
So for those who are trying to figure this out....I have tried many many of the suggestions I have found on the forums and no luck what so ever...I reloaded the ipad to origanal and did not load anything on it, Just factory settings, and still, no yahoo. Now knowing that this is not some stupid mistake on my part I called Apple Tech support and they could not get it working either and have elevated the case to engineering. I am a bit computer savey and was able to work with Apple to determine that this is most likely (in my case) a bug with the new 5.1.1 ios I installed a day ago. Once I have a better answer I will post it....Oh,,by the way..even if the Yahoo mail will not set up in the mail settings, the yahoo mail app free download works from the app store.. go figure....Good Luck..
This is not solved yet but soon..
