    Hi, Kim! Welcome to iPF!

    This can happen when Yahoo itself has problems (that's not the case at the moment), or if there's a fault in your settings, or if you changed your password for the account, but didn't do so on your iPad, ....

    In most cases deleting the account and reinstalling it will help.
