    Has anyone besides me had trouble with their Yahoo email in the last couple of days? I had it set up withe the directions that I got from this forum and it had been working fine for over a year now, and then on Thursday of this week, it quit working I get the "username or password incorrect" message. Last night, I finally got it working again, and then today it reverted right back.

    I had the same problem with mine, got sick of deleting the account and putting it back in.
    I just use K9 mail now, it's free and better IMO than the stock app.

    The stock email app and wifi cause yahoo mail issues. I suspect its a way to force people to use gmail. Try k9 mail as suggested

    Is the yahoo app not an option? I know the way we use imap settings from on here it doens't work on wifi but the app does the job that much better.

    The yahoo app worked really good for me but was a battery destroyer. There was no option for how frequently mail is checked so it was always checking mail. I haven't tried in a few months, maybe they upgraded?
