    Yahoo mail app on phone, it all of a sudden stopped syncing. It refreshes but it is not getting the emails. It is showing emails up until yesterday. Any idea how to fix this? I have rebooted phone, force stopped app...nothing.

    Thanks!

    It did that with me and I downloaded the Yahoo Mail app off the market but I made my notification light blink and it was pissing me off. Following that link will get the stock email app set up properly.

    Try this link. There is a post a few posts down stating how to get Yahoo working properly. See if this helps and report back, please.

    Maybe. When I first got my phone in November of last year, the stock email app worked fine for me. Until several months ago. Then I had to go play with the settings and used that post I directed you to to fix everything. I only found it a few weeks ago. I wasn't able to use my email app for a few months.

    Hmm don't know, recieved one email 11:30 last night and that was it, I of course has several more but they didn't come in on my phone. I can't figure it out. The setting on that link you gave me won't work at all, I get an error using the ports it supplies. The only ports where I don't get an error are 143 for incoming and 587 for outgoing.

    Still searching for an answer.......

    Hmm... well, I'm sorry, but I'm stumped. I'm sorry that I couldn't help you more. I hope you can get it figured out soon.
