How to Fix Yahoo Mail not Working on iPhone with iOS 11.2/11.1/11

Solution 1. If you are unable to open Yahoo emails properly in iPhone Mail App, try downloading and installing Yahoo Mail App from Apple iTunes Store or App Store. Yahoo Mail App is working fine mostly for all iPhone models. While if you do not want to use Yahoo Mail App, you can wait till either Apple or Yahoo find a fix for this problem.

Step 1Sign in and go to your Account security page.

Step 2Click Generate app password or Manage app passwords.

Step 3Select your app from the drop-down menu and click Generate.

Solution 3. Try signing out of your mailbox > Restart your iPhone > Login to your Yahoo email account again.

Solution 5. There is a possibility that you don’t enable cellular data. So when your iPhone is out of WiFi, your Yahoo emails cannot be received. Go to Settings > Cellular > Toggle Mail App on.

Solution 6. Set  SMTP server. Go to Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Yahoo! > Account > Outgoing Mail server SMTP > Other SMTP Servers. In Other SMTP Servers Host name is smtp.mail.yahoo.comO > Enter full Username and Password > Set Port to 465, and SSL to Yes.
