Default Yahoo email on Android not working?

Anyone else having issues receiving email on their phone? I was getting email fine up until this week and now it won't receive. I have tried everything except the app.

No, my emails and my wife's are coming through fine. My wife and I use K9 for our yahoo e-mail.

I've had this happen before. Remove the account, then reinstall using the IMAP or manual setting rather than the 'ready to go' yahoo version. You'll never know the difference and this will never happen again.

Current problem with getting yahoo email on android phones? - Yahoo! Answers
Same thing here - I was trying out the stock email with IMAP settings, along with the Yahoo mail client which I have been running since it became available on the INC1.

And I rebooted the phone, deleted and readded the account, and it still won't work. I am using IMAP settings rather than the built in Yahoo config that's included in the stock email - didn't want those rogue text messages coming in.

I would guess that it was around a week ago when it suddenly stopped working. Forcing it to sync and it does not update the inbox with what's actually in there - I was still seeing old stuff.

Edit - during all this, Yahoo's mail client was working perfectly.

This is how I had it setup and it quit working. Tried deleting the account a couple of times and manually configuring it again. No dice.

I installed K9 mail and it worked first try. This appears to be an issue with the native HTC mail receiving yahoo email. The initial setup works, but it will not download messages. The sending part works fine. If you do a forum search the problem is all over other sub forums as well. Its not just the Incredible 2.

I just confirmed this problem with Verizon data support and they said it is a wide spread issue with Yahoo and not just Incredible 2 related. Apparently this is causing issues across various Android phones as well as some authentication issues with iPhones.

Support mentioned they are getting hammered with calls about this right now. Had no estimate of when it would be fixed.

Yahoo was popping up messages on the main e-mail website about a new Yahoo E-Mail. I wonder if this has anything to do with this issue. Anyone know if this is affecting BlackBerry users?

That's pretty shabby. This "outage" has been going on for a week probably, maybe more.

Sounds like maybe they are having issues rolling out the new Yahoo email POS. The thing that gets me is K9-mail works fine. Thats either random or there is something different about the HTC mail. They both use IMAP.

So this may be a Verizon problem - I wonder if ATT users have this problem.

I wonder if it's related to that text messaging alert disaster that some peabrain dreamed up to simulate push email.

It looks like a general yahoo issue affecting multiple handsets. For more info, check here.
