    This past week, i've been having issues with yahoo mail. Previously i had no issues getting yahoo mail to work properly on my 620 in the U.S.

    Now, i keep getting the attention required notificaiton to re-enter my password which is the same and sometimes it has trouble syncing and getting stuck. Wonder anybody having the same issue on their phones?

    I go to login on my Pc, no issues, works fine.

    I recently had my email compromised which resulted in my email sending out spam to my contacts, i switched the PW and all that already, but keeps asking for password to be re-entered from time to time.

    If i delete from the phone and reinstall it would work for about 30 minutes and they ask for a PW again. I have to keep entering my PW which is annoying.

    Any help appreciated.

    I'm having the same issues. It always asks me to re-enter my password, I do that, it tries to sync, then it fails and I have to start over again. Ugh. Any ideas? It's worked fine for the past two years, but over the past week or so it's been messed up

    I've had my phone for under 2 weeks and have been prompted at least 3 separate times to reenter my Yahoo! password. It doesn't seem to have problems syncing, but the prompts are rather annoying.

    YES!!!!! only happens with Yahoo based accounts. My Bellsouth email address is through Yahoo, and it does the same thing. I set one of my Yahoo accounts up as other email(not using the Yahoo email setup button) and it worked for the 1st account, not the others. I wish that there was a Yahoo Mail app we could use!

    Yes, on my N920 that I've had for 2 months with no problems. Won't reliably sync; repeated requests to update password. Works in the browser but not in the email app. No problems with any other of my phones, tablets or PCs. Have deleted the account and added back, still doesn't work. Have tried to add the account back in using "other account" with no success. Problem started soon after I changed the password. I have been able to sync the account only a few times but it seems like a random occurence each time. One of those times was yesterday (after an hour worth of failed attempts) and so far I can still sync, the longest period of sync'ing in the last 7-8 days.

    Update: 6/21/2013. Still sync'ing correctly. Crossing my fingers that it continues. I am putting this down to either a yahoo-side issue or the approach of the spring solstice.

    Same here, my Yahoo works on computer and Android tablet but is flaky on WP8. It keeps asking for the password. It will occasionally sync, but right now it hasn't synced anything more recent than 10 hours ago.
    I tried deleting and recreating the account using Yahoo's instructions. I tried changing my password on the account. Nothing I've done has had an effect.

    I went to yahoo, upgraded to latest "Mail", said to require "SSL", and have had no issues for the last few hours. Time will tell if its a permanent fix

    Then it came back, so I looked around more. Yahoo said to remove the account from the device for 12 hours. I removed, and just rebooted my phone. Working so far..

    Occasionally it asks for my yahoo pwd too, but like one every other month.
    Brw is there a yahoo mail app??? Not official, for sure. I'd love an app to sync my contacts from my yahoo account to my wp8 device

    I got so sick of this I created an outlook.com address which works great and am migrating my email to it. I just use a browser shortcut to check yahoo once a day.

    Did the 12 hour cycle fix it?
