    All of a sudden after three months my yahoo mail can't be accessed. I noticed that I can still receive email from my gmail account. I tried rebooting but it's still happening. I also tried opening safari and going into yahoo there, but I couldn't. The weird thing is I can get yahoo email fine on my MacBook. Anyone else having this issue?

    This is almost certainly not the answer but, anyway, let's give it a whirl.....

    The iPad, by default, auto-capitalises the first letter of the first word of what it perceives to be a new sentence. If your password is all lower-case, then it's possible the iPad is changing it to upper-case when you type it in.

    Perhaps earlier you had the auto-capitalise option turned off in 'Settings' and so it wasn't an issue then.

    OK - probably not the answer, but it gets the discussion under way....

    Yahoo is notoriously flaky. It's probably not you.

    Notice also that this thread is a year old. This is ongoing.

    Yep. We get many reports of Yahoo servers being glitchy and down. Today is just special enough that it got news coverage. ;)

    Hopefully their new CEO will get them straightened out.

    The iPad can only send to you what is available. Yahoo has been a constant source of misery to users for over a year now. If you need reliability, consider gmail. I've had it for years, with never a problem.

    Yahoo generally works well through it's webmail site. It's when you try to go through their other, mail client servers that things get unreliable.

    I"m guessing the iPad uses different servers too. It would almost have to. Yahoo only offered a paid POP service until recently, but the iPad has acted like it was using Exchange or IMAP from the beginning. Apple obviously swung some kind of deal for the iPad. You can't get Yahoo Mail on a standard computer email client without a paid account, but the iPad account is still free.
