Thread: Yahoo Push Email

  1. #1
    Default Yahoo Push Email
    Hey guys,

    I got my iPhone about 3 weeks ago and in all that time, Yahoo Mail has never pushed an email to my phone ... EVER ... I've tried everything from the posts on this site including:

    1. Moving all my mail to a temporary folder, delete the account on the iPhone, re-register account on iPhone and then moving all mail back over

    2. Deleted and recreated the account numerous times

    3. Tried all the official suggestions from Yahoo

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hey all,

    I haven't been able to get this Yahoo push mail running either. I've tried several of the posted fixes short of upgrading to 1.1.4 (I'm on 1.1.3, unlocked, jailbroken, and on with T-Mobile in Germany).

    I'm about to give up on the whole thing since for me it's really not important that I get my email immediately.

    However, an observation...

    As we all know, the phone is pretty noisy around unshielded devices. While syncing I'd usually notice one disturbance and that was it.

    Since I setup the Yahoo email account with push ON (under settings), I was getting disturbances every 5 seconds (email waiting). I never recieved the push email in waiting. Once I turned push OFF, the disturbances stopped.

    I suspect that maybe the phone gets its notification via EDGE that there is an email waiting, then tells the phone to go online and retrieve it. Since I don't have a data plan with T-mobile here, I was hoping everything'd work over my WLAN.

    No luck. Hope that helps. Sorry if stating the obvious...
