Until this morning my business mail I have with yahoo was working fine. It stopped sending mails this morning saying the smtp server wasent available. I tried putting the password a few times and then changed the password and finally gave up.
Then I deleted the account all together and tried to set it up again. Now it wont setup at all. It says the imap server is currently not available. I tried pop as well and the same response.
I tired every different way possible, using the default account setup where it uses rim.imap.yahoo.com and the advanced setting where I input the incoming and outgoing servers manually. Nothing seems to be working.
I thought it might be a problem with the service provider, but then all my other emails work just fine. 2 on gmail and 1 on hotmail. Plus it was good until yesterday.
Thanks in advance

I fixed the incoming mail problem. Had to setup the incoming leaving the smtp username and password blank.
Now I get the mails, but the smtp server doesnt work. I hear that bb10 OS has this problem with smtp. I really didnt want to regret moving out of my old blackberry...but this seems to be getting me there.
Anybody know if there are any updates coming for the Q10?

1) delete the email account that is causing an issue
2) go to system settings/accounts/add account/email,Calendar and Contacts./advance/pop
And type the following info

Use SSL on " make sure it is on on your yahoo account login to your yahoo account from your desktop to check.
SMTP username "your business email address example firstname.lastname@example.org
SMTP Password "your password"
SMTP Server Address "smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com

Will work without any problem. Worked for me and my two other partners.

The POP setting are working.. But the imap are far better as it automatically marks messages you have read elsewhere as read already.. and BB10 still does not have a select all feature.. So the POP solution is a temporary one.. Still need the imap to work again..
