Yahoo Email saying Wrong Password/Username
soldierswife24

This has happened a lot now and it's really getting annoying. My yahoo email is set up on my phone, and every day or so. It will say wrong password/username..I know I am not entering the wrong password/username, because I can log on to it on my computer. Any help would be great!

 

Thanks

That is werid. I've never had any phone ask me for my email password a second time after setting up..

 

Have you changed it on the computer recently? Try removing the mail and putting it fresh back on

Iv tried that too. I will delete my account and set it back up..with in a few days it will say "wrong password/username". It's really annoying. This happened again today. So I tried to set it back up, and now it wont even let me set it up.

really sounds like user error man..keep trying :smileytongue:

 

Do you have it set so you can see what letters you are putting into your password? Turn that on and make sure the keyboard isn't inputting something you aren't typing

Usually one of the answes already stated is correct, one other possibility is the server is temp. down for repairs, it has happen to me several times, I just waited a few hours and sure enough no more problem

Well it's none of these that have been stated. Iv made sure everything is correct when entering it, and the network isnt down becasue it stll won't work, but thanks for the advice. I will just take it up to the store and see if they know whats wrong.

it could be just a space before or after the password, I.ve seen that happen before.. be sure you delete everything in the password box and try again

I Have the exact same issue.. I can access my email from Verizon.net but not from outlook 2003 or my iphone.  It works for a couple days and then I start getting incorrect password errors.   Verizon cant figure it out after 5 online chats for over 5 hours.
