Yahoo mail on playbook mail. Keeps asking for password

For about two weeks now, for no obvious reason, my imap yahoo mail on the playbook mail keeps asking for my password!

 

I tried deleting and re setting up yahoo mail, but it keeps happening, its driving me nuts. Only with yahoo, not gmail or hotmail.

 

Any ideas?

When you delete the problematic email account reboot your PlayBook. Make sure your cell phone is not connected and turn off Bluetooth when you do this. If you don't have a cell phone connected , disregard the last sentence.

After the reboot, reinstall the Yahoo mail account.

I just started to get the flashing screen, while trying to use the bridge, so a security wipe is essential now anyway. I wonder does this happen with iPADS, i think not!

Its the third or fourth time now I have had to do a total reboot from scratch in about 5 months!

What is the flashing screen you mention? It that the boot up screen you are talking about?

Re: Yahoo mail on playbook mail. Keeps asking for password

The flashing screen seems to be quite common, it happens while trying to connect to the phone via blackberry bridge. The only way to fix it is to do a security wipe and start from scratch.

 

Yesterday to try and solve the mail issue with yahoo (native mail client) and the flashing bridge connection problem, I did a backup via the desktop software.< secutity wipe<  < then a restore from the desktop software.

 

The results are the flashing screen issue is fixed, the imap-yahoo requesting my password is still not fixed? no idea what to do now, or why it is only with yahoo
