Question: Yahoo! Not working on iOS mail

For the last few months I have been having problems with my yahoo not loading or updating in the iOS mail app. Gmail works just fine. I have looked up different resolutions and nothing is working. I’ve even deleted the account to re-add the account. Now the account won’t re-add to iOS mail. Anyone know a way to fix this?!?!?

Hi there Gijo530.

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities. It sounds like you're unable to add Yahoo back to your iPhone. I rely on email too, and it's my pleasure to help you out tonight.

Can you log into your Yahoo mail on the site? Verify there first.

Then restart your iPhone.

Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Then try adding your Yahoo mail account back to your iPhone.

Set up an email account on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Please let me know if you're able to set up Yahoo mail on your iPhone.

Take care.

This solves the problem for the moment but does not solve it forever. The next time you check, it is still not updated. Any other ideas?

What I have noticed is there is Incoming Mail Server listed when I look at the advanced settings. Could this be the problem?
