@Jcr918 - What type of email are you trying to set up? If it's a Gmail account, sometimes disabling the two step verification process can help bypass the password issue.

Let us know if you are still having this issue so we may try and assist you further!

All kinds of problems with Yahoo these days... My Yahoo display etc.

Cant send email text, from Yahoo email, to my Verizon prepaid phone.

Yahoo must be having issues with survival in current IT world.

This has been frustrating me and lots of others too.  There's something buggy there.

I saw that someone tried turning off wifi and trying to created the account on LTE.

That worked for me but I have no idea why.  Once it worked, I can again go on wifi and get yahoo mail jsut fine.
