    Since updating to 8.1, my Yahoo! Mail no longer synchronizes updates. No settings have been changed, and all login credentials are correct and were working as normal prior to 8.1.

    Mine's working fine since the update, which makes a change as it is prone to issues.

    I trying to see if it has something to do with being part of a Linked a Inbox. On my iPad, my Yahoo! Mail account is working normally, so it us not a Yahoo server issue.

    Yahoo always has issues especially with phones.

    What happens when you delete the account and add it again?

    I just unlinked the inboxes, no effect, then deleted and re-added the account. Under settings, email+accounts, it is grayed-out and "synching..." for about the last half-hour.

    Mine has been working smoothly since installing the update on Monday (knock on wood). It has acted up periodically since I got the phone, though, so who knows if it will keep working? Screws up on my PCs pretty regularly, too, usually reporting that my credentials are wrong when they're not.

    Mine is still not working and I'm on WP 8 since 8.1 is not out for the 1020 on ATT yet. I'm guessing it is not a 8.1 issue.

    I'm at 19 hours now with not sync. I tried deleting the account and redoing it but that did not work.

    Do you have another device you can use to access your account to see if it's only your phone or if it's an account problem?

    Nothing has resolved this for me. Yahoo mail tajes hours to synchronize on the a Windows Phine, and is working instantaneously on my iPad. It's becoming very frustrating.

    I'm getting the same scenario on my 1020, but not with Yahoo, its happening to my Outlook email. Mine hasn't synced since 8am today, and this has started to happen quite frequently.

    The error message I end up getting (80C805E2) says "last updated about a week ago." its being kind of hard on itself because it was clearly downloading email this morning at 7.

    Arghh...It's playing up again, now it keeps saying my password is incorrect (it isn't) and it won't sync, so I can't get my email at all. Really sick of this, wish I knew if it was a wp8.1 issue or a Yahoo issue. I suspect it's WP, as I have no issues using my yahoo account on the PC.

    I'm actually pretty sure it's a Yahoo issue, as I've been having this off and on for years on my PC. It hasn't happened at all since I got my Lumia in April. Go figure.

    I've been having problems with Yahoo and Ovi accounts on and off for months but today my Ovi account just flat out refuses to sync or accept my password on either my 1520 or on Windows 8.1.
    I've changed passwords and deleted both accounts but it still isn't working. Accessing my account through a browser works fine though.
    I've given up trying to fix it now and just hope that whatever is causing the problem is resolved soon.
