    HTC One M8. Tried several apps for mail including the default one. Keep getting authentication errors. Logged in via browser ok, but not the apps.

    Figured it out. Seems the 2 level authentication on yahoo security settings was turned on. Turning it off allowed it to connect. I guess using the browser and authenticating isn't good enough for the different levels of auth.

    Might need to try a soft reset, settings/emails+accounts is what I use to and it works fine. Never had any problems.
