Hmm..  Yahoo just came out with their own email android app.  I loaded it and now it's gettting the yahoo mail just fine.   I liked having all my email accounts together but this is ok for now ..... at least I can get it.

I'm having the same problem.  All of a sudden (today) none of my incoming email will download (yahoo, Outlook, etc..)  I can send email but nothing will download.

There have been similar reports by users in the Droid X section of this community. Sounds like Yahoo has been making some server changes on their end which affects the end users.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Tested further...  it's only Yahoo mail that doesn't work.   Looks like other Android phones are having the same problem.

I think that the Yahoo application has been available for sometime. They may have updated it recently.

There are instructions on Yahoo's website:  http://mobile.yahoo.com/mail/android  

Click on the imap tab at the bottom.  It worked for me.  Good luck.

I had this issue, starting today. I went to the yahoo mail site, checked the mobile settings and they were not any different than the ones that were set up when this phone was set up. After reading these posts, I decided to try the official yahoo mail application and it seems to be working fine now, but I actually preferred what came on my thunderbolt. I guess Yahoo just wants you to use their official app.

While the app is nice, it doesn't give you enough settings and it drains the battery.
