I've been having this email issue with Yahoo for over a month now. Had no issues with Yahoo email or any other account for months, and then suddenly, yahoo dropped out. (I'm running a FrankenPre2 on Sprint, have Yahoo, Gmail and a business account, and a TouchPad linked to the same accounts).
I've tried every trick listed in this forum except doctoring. My Touchpad still gets Yahoo mail just fine, so I haven't thought that the effort of doctoring my FrankenPre2 is worth just getting Yahoo mail back on it. Enough people were convinced that this was a Yahoo side problem.
I've been going back and forth with Yahoo on this issue for the past month. I'm a Yahoo Plus subscriber and I threatened to cancel my subscription if this issue wasn't resolved. This morning I got the following email from Yahoo support:

I have not redone my Yahoo account to test it. Going to give it some time to make sure the "fix" is definitely in before I try it. Don't know if this has fixed anything for anyone yet or not...
