    I don't know whether or not you have a paid account or what they call a plus account. They recently changed their pop and smtp access by adding "plus" in front of their incoming and outgoing servers. You can check the setting by logging into your yahoo account and searching under; options - mail options - pop and forwarding - setup, and then, view pop settings. It will give you something along the following -

    incoming server - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com, ssl authentication on, enter your password, port 995

    outgoing server - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com, ssl authentication on, enter your password, port 465

    Again this is for the paid service, I think it's like $14.95 per year.

    Now, I should mention that these are the exact same settings that I have in my Mail app (I'm on a Mac) and these settings automatically sync with my phone, so I've never had to make any changes to my phone settings.

    Hope that helps.

    can someone please help with the email problem with yahoo, i tried everything, well almost everything. I even went to there site ( yahoo ) and did this " At the beginning of BOTH the POP and SMTP server address settings, add the word "plus." (period included).

    That is,

    Incoming Mail Server (POP3):
    plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com

    Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):
    plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com

    Where do I do that?
    Generally, you can find these settings under the Tools or Preferences menus within your particular email program.

    Thanks. We understand that this has been frustrating, and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

    I had this problem on a jailbroke/unlocked 1.1.4 iPhone. Solution for me was to install the youtube activation fix from installer (you may need to add a source). I tried dozens of things but this worked for me. Installed the fix, restarted phone, and both mail and youtube worked.

    Yup... i've seen many people install the "youtube fix" and/or the "youtube activator" and it seems to correct the mail issue for some reason.

    I would like to see a setting that enables you to turn off the outgoing mail server for Yahoo Mail (currently not possible) so that mail can be sent from an inactive Gmail SMTP outgoing mail server. That way you can use the Yahoo Push Mail for all incoming mail, and all outgoing mail would be sent through your gmail account. Complicated, because Gmail doesn't have push, but it does have forwarding, whereas Yahoo Mail does have push, but it doesn't have forwarding. This way, I would only have to manage one account on my iPhone (Yahoo), not two. If you try and turn it OFF, it still says ON, so long as Yahoo mail is active.
