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. 1 on gmail and 1 on comcast. Plus it was good until yesterday.
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.

I had the same issue with yahoo small business mail. I thought if I apdate the phone to os 10.1 it will fix my issue. No luck after all. So final I find the solution to the problem.
See it below.
On your Z10
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
Description "whatever you want"
Display name "whatever you want"
Username "your business email address example email@example.com
Email Address "your business email address example firstname.lastname@example.org
Password "your password"
Server Address "pop.bizmail.yahoo.com
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 email@example.com
SMTP Password "your password"
SMTP Server Address "smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com
SMTP Encryption SSL
Sync Interval "it is up to you"
Initial retrieval amount "30 days"
Will work without any problem. Worked for me and my two other partners.

I was struggling like you, tried all of the suggestions. POP worked but all that did was get me email INCLUDING spam (POP isn't good at folder redirection so it delivers everything). That wasn't going to work for me.
So after reading a bit, I logged into my Yahoo account from my PC. I looked at my profile and I saw the the phone number associated with my account - while correct - was never "verified". So it sat in an unverified state.
I used the tool to verify my phone by having it send me a text message with a code number (you can choose to have the computer robot voice call you if you want instead).
Once I "verified" my phone number, on my Z10 i went under Accounts, New, Advanced, Yahoo, and simply added my username and password where needed.
IT FINALLY WORKED.
I don't know if "verifying" is new. All of my issues came about after I updated to a new operating system version.
So the above is what worked for me and I have a feeliing if you log into you Yahoo account from you PC, then you may see the same, or some other piece of information that might be "off". For example, if your birthdate isn't filled in (Yahoo likes to verify that you are over 13 years old).
Give it a try and see what you can find.
