I'm getting the same error message, on both yahoo and gmail. Tried to repeat the setup, but the error message keeps coming back, seemingly at random. Sometimes email works for few hours, sometimes only for 10 minutes (after the repeated setup). Local Verizon store went through the same procedure, setting it all up for me, it worked at the store, and soon after I got the same message as you again. Tech support at VZ so far doesn't know where the problem is, one of them told me flat out to return the phone and get Samsung Galaxy instead. Anybody from BB has any idea?

Try the other solution on my other post "Problems with Yahoo emails". I got more help there from another member.
I deleted the accounts, rebooted the unit and re-established the accounts with corrected server addresses. I has been working on both Yahoo and Gmail since.

PS, the post is titled:
Problems with Yahoo Mail
on the search engine.
Search it and you will find my discussion there with resident expert. It's been working since Saturday, I didn't have to do it again.

In your Settings > Accounts, delete that yahoo account, reboot the device and then setup the Yahoo email account again.
Reboot by holding down both of the Up and Down volume keys on the side for about 20 seconds, ignoring the initial screenshot message... the screen will go black and reboot.

In addition, after the reboot, make sure you have correct server address for both incoming and outgoing emails. What comes as a default from the provider may not always be correct. Mine was not, and until I set it up manually, the problem kept coming back.
Correct server addresses for Yahoo and Gmail are in my other post, "Problems with Yahoo Email"
