Yahoo mail not syncing.It goes back to July 4th.

Okay,this issue only started two weeks ago..see what help you can give me. I noticed that my Yahoo mail started showing a sync date of 7/4/11 at 9:53 a.m. I thought it was a temp thing,but,it has continued,and I don't want to delete my Yahoo account,I'm at a loss as to what to do. Anyone else out there have the same issue? I have a 3gs,by the way.

Re: Yahoo mail not syncing.It goes back to July 4th.

So what exactly is the real issue?

Is it syncing but not updating the sync date/time?

Is it not syncing at all?

Any errors when it tries to sync?

 

Why would it matter if the account is deleted and readded?  This does not affect the account in any way or delete it from Yahoo, it simply removes the account from the device.

Did you get an email from Yahoo about upgrading your services?  If so, did this problem start before, when, or after the upgrade happened?  I go tthe email about my service being upgraded, but since I don't use that address on my iPhone, I don't know if it caused any problems or not.  I wouldn't be surprised to see it did...

Re: Yahoo mail not syncing.It goes back to July 4th.

I've experienced a similar problem.  I get new messages from yahoo mail downloaded to my iPhone but no communication seems to go back to yahoo about messages being read, deleted or placed into folders, resulting in a situation where you have to re-do anything you did on your phone in yahoo's Web-based email app.  I can't recall exactly when it started but I think it was about the time I upgraded to the new Yahoo mail interface - which I believe was in early July.

We are having issues at our company getting emails to go through to Yahoo addresses. I am wondering if Yahoo doesn't have a problem with their upgrade?
