    Recently had to change my email password on my desktop, I changed the password to match on my iPad as well. For awhile I had no problems, then all of the sudden it is constantly telling me I either have a wrong username or password. I am at a total loss of what to do to fix this.
    Of course I have my warranty on the iPad but my technical phone service is expired and I don't have the money to pay for the help.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd say delete your email address on your iPad and set it up again . It might help .

    As Yptcn-this does work. I have read other members finding resolution doing when they had similar problems with their Email. See this thread. http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-faq/57195-not-recognizing-password.html This should give you better understanding. The posts from Twerppoet is very helpful.

    Good luck-if it doesn't work, let us know. :)

    I tried that and I am sad to say it didn't work, I keep getting the same message

    I have noticed that the incoming mail server is different from my main/original email account the original mail server is

    pop.att.yahoo.com

    My email account that I am having problems with shows mail server

    imap.mail.yahoo.com

    I have even tried deleting that and typing in the pop.att.yahoo.com and it still didn't work.

    Hmm...Try this: Go to iPad settings/Safari/Clear History AND Passwords/Cookies. Try that.

    I tried and still the same thing....
    The box that pops up says

    The user name or password for imap.mail.yahoo.com is incorrect..



    That imap stuff was automatic, I didn't type that in there,

    Have you tried the immediate solutions of quitting your email app? To do this, press the home button twice until you get the multi-task bar. Press the email app until it jiggles and press the negative sign button. Re-open the email and see if it helps.

    Also,if that doesn't work--try to restart your ipad. To do this, press the power button until you get the slide lock to power off. Turn back on and retry.

    I shut it down and back on. For some reason after doing that my att account was gone, I added it back on and it works....
    Thank you for your help, greatly appreciated.
