I can't access yahoo mail from my s3 android.


New Email
Hi, My name is Tim. I can't access my yahoo mail from my phone but, I can access it
on the browser. It just started last night. The error says: Sorry! We are unable to access yor mailbox currently. Please try again later. I have been trying since last night. I reloaded
the client on my samsung s3 android but it still gives me the same message. My Yahoo
account is ttaulbee@yahoo.com. Please let me know if you can help.
Thanks Tim

Please check server settings. This sounds to me like a case of fat fingering server address or settings.

Yahoo Mail offers standard POP3 access for receiving emails incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite email client software. To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings:
Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
POP Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings
Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)

I have created a test account and was able to sync to my phone without issue.

Try entering server address again.

I would also perform a hard reset on phone by pulling battery.

Let us know if that works.
