Yahoo email validation

I get emails from the donotreply@blackberry.com that tell me I need to validate my Yahoo email.  I've done the validation thing countless times and it NEVER accepts the password.  The only way I can get it to work is go to Yahoo and set a new password on my email account.  Then I need to get on my 8900 and "validate" with the password.

 

Why do I have to change my Yahoo password to get this to work?  I know my password is correct because I got to Yahoo on my laptop, login, and enter the correct password and the email comes up.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Yahoo email validation

Yes, I've checked those out.  I use the Yahoo email on my 8900 all the time.  But, it occasionally tells me to validate my password and I do.  But, it tells me the password is incorrect and I know it's correct.  The only way I've discovered to remedy is log into Yahoo email, change my password and then validate with new password on the Blackberry.  I shouldn't have to change my Yahoo password just because the Blackberry decides randomly that I need to change it.
