iPad standard email mystery problem

New problem. When I access email using the standard iPad app I get an error message saying my email address is incorrect (which it isn't).

So then I go to The Settings app and re-type in the email address. After the system verifies my entry the error message "Cannot Get Mail" "The user name or password for "apple.imap.mail.yahoo.com is incorrect".

My email address and password are both correct. The only odd thing I can think of is my email address is xxxxxxxxx@sbcglobal.net which is a legacy address still valid for AT&T which uses their own form of yahoo mail.

Btw, since this problem occurred I brought over my true AT&T Email to our iPad.

Comments, suggestions, questions welcome!

So it's a Yahoo account, with an external address? Have you check on Yahoo website if you account still works?

In the past, I had a MSN account with my work email address. It worked for years, until Microsoft dropped that kind of account.

My AT&T Internet email works perfectly. In fact I added it to my iPad directly from my Internet mail page.

The last few days I've had the same kind of trouble getting outgoing email via either hotmail or msn mail.

I just reset my iPad and for the moment, hotmail seems to now work again. However msn mail still refuses to go out.

Dr House, msn mail is still working FWIW. If you google it, you can still get a free msn email account.

what I meant was that I used my msn account using my email at work, not a hotmail account. So I could have a msn messenger linked to my work email ( like pballeux@somecompany.com)

I have the same problem, always with one specific email acct. It will work for a while and then I get the error message when I have made no changes at all. Very, very frustrating. I just turn the iPad off for a while and it usually corrects itself, but it can't be right. I'd love to know what's going on and how to prevent it.

Force close the app:
Double tap the Home button to show the multitask bar, then slide the picture above the app icon towards the top of the screen.

Resetting it could help as well:
Press and hold Home and Power button until the Apple logo appears, release both and let the iPad power up.
