    Must not have it set up with the correct smtp and pop servers. Just my guess.

    These should be the parameters:

    Type is IMAP

    Username: Enter email address
    Password: Enter password
    IMAP server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 143
    Security: none
    SMTP server: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 587
    Require sign in: Yes (checked)
    Username: Email address
    Password: Yahoo! Password
