My Yahoo will not stay synced , this is my second rhyme for this reason, it worked with the new phone for about 3 weeks now I have to delete my account and - it several times a day just to be able to read my emails. This is ridiculous I got a smart phone mainly for e-mail, now I am thinking what was the point?? Can anyone help, the Verizon Store just keeps wanting to give me a new phone, but obviously that did not help either.

Have you verified your sync settings and make sure that you configured the account to auto update on a regular schedule?

Yes I have done this before, it doesn't seem to help, sometimes it will work if I refresh sometimes that doesn't work, but I don't know that much about peak times and what does "push mail" mean?  I have peak times set at 8 am to 11 pm and update mail every 5 min on peak and 10 min off peak.  Should I change these? btw thanks for all your help.

  • I have my peak times set at 8am - 8pm
  • Push email is usually used for email servers that support real time email delivery.
  • Check Settings / Account & Sync / Account Name /Check Sync Mail and Update when opened (Also set Update Schedule)

I have checked all these settings and they all seem to be set correctly.

Well it appears you have covered all the common areas that cause your issue and if you haven't found a solution then I am wondering if its the connection altogether..

Maybe you should try the Yahoo app on the market and see if it helps or maybe K9 email client would work better for you.
