    I've had my T-Mobile Galaxy S4 for a few weeks now. The email app has worked flawlessly until this morning.

    I now get the "Sign in Failed" error whenever trying to check email.

    I've restarted the phone. Deleted and re-installed the yahoo account. All the settings appear to be correct.

    Any help in resolving this would be greatly appreciated!

    With this exact same problem only with my Yahoo mail, I wrote this on the "Support WiFi Issue" thread:

    "My phone, even when sleeping, would keep trying and failing to connect with each mailbox. This problem was solved using the Yahoo Mail App. to handle my Yahoo mailboxes."

    I think you'll notice that this downloading and using this free App.works. I tried everything prior to this. Be sure to delete your Yahoo mailboxes on the "Email" setting of "Accounts".

    Thanks. I've been using the Yahoo App since this morning, but was hoping there might be a fix for the Android App. you lose a great many functionalities (e.g., air view) when you use the Yahoo app versus the Android one.
