Unhappy Yahoo Mail

I am having an issue with Yahoo mail on my D2. It was working fine yesterday, but today I have been getting a connection error in my notification bar. Says that Yahoo can not connect. So it takes me to a setting page where I can only change my password. So I re-typed in my password, to make sure it was correct, and I get a msg back saying that it can't connect to the host. Then I tried removing the account completely, so I could start from scratch, and I am getting a msg saying "Your request was denied, please try again". I have tried multiple times, but same deal.

Does anyone know of a way to remove the account another way? Or what would be denying me from doing so?

I actually figured out it was because I was on WiFi, which is strange within itself that it would not work.

So I will check out this Yahoo app. Hope it does push.

Yahoo mail pushes for a while, then stops, then will push again. Very well designed.

I was trying to login from Yahoo app on my Droid 2 it said " Login failed-Your account is locked, Please sign into Yahoo via a web browser to unlock your account" but I can't find any where from Yahoo to unlock it after I log in to yahoo by using a web browser. Anyone can help? Thank you very much. Problem fixed!! Thank you, I just went to yahoo and change my password then log in again with a new password, it worked.
