    Guys, I cant get my emails via the mail app on my ipad. I can get them if i go on yahoo via safari so i know the email account is functioning.
    When I open the mail app it updates, then shows a 'load more messages' , i click on this and then it just shows the rotating symbol in the upper left of the screen ( same as when accessing wifi network ) it just then sits like this until i get fed up waiting ( 10 mins )
    One other piece of info ....when i get the 'load more messages' it also shows i have 6 messages so it must connect to get this info
    Any ideas ?

    Is this a new problem or has this worked OK before?

    Some Members have reported problems with the Yahoo email server (different machine from the webmail server) recently.

    Have you tried deleting and re-adding the Yahoo account on the iPad?

    Darn. You should try a reset, though I don't think it will help, it might.

    Also visit the account with a browser. If there are any large or unusual attachments, you might want to get rid of them, or move them out of the inbox. That is all I can think of.


    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    I am having same problem and it's driving me crazy. I have reset iPad, updated os, delete and re activated account several times, changes account password, moved all emails to an archive folder via laptop and browser. I can send emails from the account, but the iPad absolutely will not load new or current messages, it just randomly loads month old bull****. I have a few yahoo accounts, and this is the only one that has problems and of course it's the most important one I use.

    Sounds like you've done about everything I could suggest.

    When you say delete and reactivate the account, you mean on the iPad, right? If not, then do that.
