After updating to 1.3.1, I keep getting prompted to re-enter my Yahoo password even though it's correct. This happens every 8 hours or so. When I click on the alert it takes me to the Contacts app and wants me to enter the Yahoo password. Very weird. Anyone else seeing this?

Same here, keeps asking for password though I put it in correctly. Also it does not seem to have synced my Yahoo Calendar at all. Any one else?

I have 2 yahoo accounts. One works fine with emails and calendar linked while the other only links emails. It constantly asks for login and says incorrect password. I have deleted the account and added it again with the same results.
Any ideas of how to get the second calendar account to become enabled?

I'm so-so-so sure that this is a Yahoo issue and not a Palm issue/ I say this becuase I've had the same problem with Digsby (a messaging client) it constantly asks me to re-enter my password, I've noticed that once it starts that, it won't accept the pass. SO, I then 'ave to open up a browser, log in (or logout then log in) to Yahoo. After I've done that, it;ll accept my pass and log in to Y!IM. Same exact thing is happening with the fone. I'm going to try to log in to Yahoo via fone next time it happens. It's crazy annoying, I even removed that Yahoo calendar sync because of it.

I point the blame at Yahoo's security "features".

I have the same issue and have been noticing a huge battery drain after the update. Others have indicated it's the battery meter recalibrating, but I don't think so, since the Pre is warm to the touch - which happens when I run battery intensive apps like Sprint Navigation for a while. Anyone else seeing this too?

I had the same issue. I have 4 other Yahoo! Mail accounts, but for some reason Only one had "it's Credentials Rejected"

Solution? It was a lesser used account, which i had set to check every 6 hrs, as opposed to every hr like the others. *Could that have been it?* Who knows? I deleted it, and all was fine.

It's not just yahoo. Gmail is doing the same thing for some people, including me.

I was having the same problem with Yahoo asking me to re-enter my password and Yahoo IM was not showing up either. I backed up all my data and did a full erase and it worked like a charm. Yahoo IM now shows up and Yahoo does not continuously ask for my password.
