    I have tried everything for the past two hours trying to get my yahoo email working on my new iphone and nothing has worked.

    Just what am I doing wrong here?

    I just tried this and it worked for me:
    Close the mail app on the iphone and go to a computer, sign in to your yahoo mail account and do the verification that it pops up. If there is no such thing that pops up then go back to your iphone and do the following:

    1.) Delete the yahoo mail account on your iphone.
    2.) Add mail account using "other" instead of "Yahoo!" and setup as IMAP account.
    3.) Use the following information:
    - username MUST include @yahoo.com at the end
    - incoming server = imap.mail.yahoo.com
    - outgoing server = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    - always retype your password

    Have had this problem. I have been getting repeated pop ups from Yahoo asking for a Password.

    Delete Yahoo profile from iPhone 5s, Tried to re setup Yahoo in iPhone. Get error "Server Unavailable"

    Also tried setting up using IMAP, get error (user name or password error). Setup Imap as shown on Yahoo site with Authentication and correct ports.

    Im seriously struggling with the same issue.
    I have tried all avenues, removed the email account and currently using the Yahoo mail app... but I really want to have my account on my iphone Mail, Calendars and not having to go into a seperate app.

    I used to have it working on my phone and then one day it wasnt syncing and I thought i would be clever to delete the account and reload it ... only now constantly I get the Server Unavailable error

    I don't use my Yahoo account that often, even on the computer, and haven't tried to log on with it from my iPhone yet. The link above is a good one to bookmark for me just in case I need to check in with Yahoo.

    Yahoo is slipping away. I don't think they are long for this world.
