    I have noticed since Thursday of last week that using the stock android mail program to get emails from yahoo it is not downloading the newest emails unless I have the setting to download today's emails only. I have re-setup the account using the automatic set up and also tried the manual set up using imap and pop and the same thing happens. I have had no problems with this at all since having my hero since the beginning of the year.

    Yahoo published an updated app by accident which doesn't work. It must be uninstalled and the old version 1.04 reinstalled

    I stopped using the stock email and use the Yahoo app. MUCH better! And you can access all your folders and contacts. Soo much better. ;)

    I started having a problem around the same time with the stock Hero mail app and yahoo but only with outgoing mail - the yahoo server was apparently not responding. I had used their auto setup for android back whenever they introduced that. What seems to have fixed the problem for now at least is that I went into the setup and removed the "android" prefix from the outgoing SMTP server address So instead of "android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com" it is just "smtp.mail.yahoo.com" and now it works.

    I didn't touch the IMAP address because I haven't had problems but you might try removing the "android" portion from that.
