    A few weeks ago the 4 Yahoo mail accounts I have connected through Synergy in my Touchpad stopped working one by one over the course of a week. They're not in heavy use, so I just let the warnings sit there, figuring it might be a certificate issue that might fix itself. Now I'm actually trying to make them work, and they just won't. Changed yahoo passwords, updated new passwords on the TP, and still get a "bad password" error. Anybody have currently working synergy with yahoo mail?

    I'll check my Touchpad, but I'm syncing a Yahoo account with my Pre3 still, and it's working fine.

    Yes, but...

    I'm having problems with the TP. I suspect 'corrupt database'. There is a fix for that, but I'd need to check

    Will have to keep on trying. Good to know it isn't universally dead.

    Mine had been working until last week were it crapped out on my pre3. I was unable to re-add it as a synergy account, so I just imap my yahoo email on the pre3. Now every day or two it tells me I have bad login credentials and I have to re enter the password. Then it works in imap to get my email. This is frustrating.

    I wonder if it's the lack of 2 factor authentication. Perhaps the server knocks back the login occasionally? I've had this in the past where there's a refusal to connect, but re-entering the PW seems to resolve it temporarily and eventually it settles down. I'm currently OK with palm.imap.yaho.com, but there's no purple 'Y' so I guess this is generic. It'll probably break tomorrow.... and it's not like Yahoo mail has a reputation any more!

    I'm entirely speculating here, but you could try logging in to Yahoo with a client like Thunderbird or Outlook or via the web from your computer. If there's some kind of alert coming from the TP, a login from the same / similar IP with PW entry & a modern client / browser might reassure an algorithim (that I've probably totally invented in my head!).

    My Yahoo mail account finally stopped working on my Touchpad and Pre3 after March 15. Removed and re-added as generic IMAP. Expect to get login errors every few days like creepingmee.
