    Did you make sure that "email notifications" is checked under the account settings? Also make sure that "sync" is turned on as well as making sure that "email check frequency" isn't set to "never."

    You have to keep wifi turned off if you want to use Yahoo email. Not just while you set it up. Always!

    ...and if you continue to read the Yahoo threads you'll see that it just doesn't work at all for some people. It was off and on for me and I've just given up at this point.

    Also, make sure you're excluding your yahoo email from your kill lists in your Task Manager. You probably have, but I didn't do this at first and had trouble, now I get my email and notifications almost instantly.
