    I am unable to sync my Yahoo mail account with my HTC Radar phone running Win7.5... it's been fine for over a year, but this morning I can't sync at all.

    I deleted the account from the phone and then set it up again.

    The phone keeps asking for the account password, then tells me it's syncing, but nothing ever updates.

    Does anyone have any ideas?!

    Oh wow... I'm not the only one having issues with this. I have a Lumia 810. Won't take my password at all... I am rather perplexed. Maybe this is a change on Yahoo's side?

    Yep, I am too.. my Nokia 920 hasn't synced since last night. I've checked that the password is correct by logging in using the web browser on the phone.. but the email just dies, nothing in/out

    This is happening to me too! It's frustrating as all hell. I have no issued syncing via my old iPhone, the Windows 8 mail app or the official W8 Yahoo app. I can even sign in with IE for WP8. :(

    This is a killer for me. I figured maybe I could resetup.. I'm using a Nokia 920, so I'm on WP8, but I can't figure out (or get it) to delete the account so I can re-add it. I don't even see an option now to delete the account

    Go to settings > accounts, and hold your finger on the Yahoo account to delete.

    I finally found a solution that works... for now.

    Somehow an email within the last few days caused this "Sync Issue". So I deleted my Yahoo Mail account from my Windows phone, used my PC to move all my emails to the Archive folder and only leave the ones from today. Then I added back my Yahoo Account at my windows phone. The sync works now without complaining anymore more nor asking for password anymore.

    Geoff, you don't. The emails are only there on your phone temporarily like a hotel on vacation. Where they really live is on the email providers server in a cold room somewhere.THIS is the onliest (it IS a word) reason you are able to access your emails from almost anywhere. So in a nutshell, you can't, but you don't have to.
