View Full Version : Problem With Yahoo Mail IMAP

18th August 2012, 06:00 PM
Hi, I have a Yahoo email that I use for my Apple ID. I access it via IMAP in Mail. Over the last few days if I log-out of the computer, then log back in, the Yahoo mail comes up with a bouncing log-in (that is where the log-in screen keeps bouncing in). The only way to fix it is to delete the account in Mail, log out via the web page access, then log back in via the web page, then reinstall Yahoo in Mail.

This is very annoying and time consuming! No problems with my two Gmail accounts and my two POP accounts on my ISP.

Early 2011 Macbook Pro running Mountain Lion.

Anyone else had similar problems?

Not at all. I stopped using mail for yahoo, but I'll set it up again and see what happens, just out of curiosity

[edit] Next day... yep, happening here too (though I dont need to delete the account, just supply the password), but it also happens with my hotmail account from time to time as well. It might just be a random issue with the website.
