Cannot get Yahoo email on Playbook

Was working a couple weeks ago and since then cannot connect.  Is there a fix on this shortly as my Playbook is useless now.

Re: Cannot get Yahoo email on Playbook

it appears that the server is down try setting up a different account with yahoo mail.. your address has rim in it that may be the root of your problem they may be in the process of changing the domain
