Yahoo Mail not Pushing Anymore?
Even though I have my Yahoo and Outlook e-mails set to push, it seems only the Outlook account actually is doing it and the Yahoo one just sits dormant, especially when on a charger I've noticed, until I open the account then it will retrieve the e-mail, often times finally showing me stuff that was hours old that I was not alerted to earlier.
Is this happening to anyone else. Any suggestions? I have Fetch set to an HOUR, I could try moving that up to 15 minutes but I also don't want to kill my battery either.
I thought this happened before and it was on Yahoo's end and nothing I did fixed it until it magically started working again...

Yeah- thats what I have too- I have at&t which uses yahoo- there are a few days when it pushes without a problem but that does not happen often- Its on their end not yours. I know when I am waiting for a specific email I make sure to use my gmail or .me address that works flawlessly-

I think it has something to do with the way the phone sleeps. Often when my phone is sleeping it won't push, but when I wake it up I get all my emails. But maybe not, because other times it works flawlessly. Could just be one of those crazy things. I don't really care that much about email, so I never really looked into it.

Yahoo had a service disruption 3 hours ago, about half of their users were experiencing downtime, including my paid account.
It's not a perfect resource since it's crowd-sourced, this site reported the same:

Neither yahoo gmail or iCloud will push for me at all. Have mine set to fetch hourly. Push hasn't worked for me since the update to ios5, and hasn't worked on 2 different devices (had to swap my iPhone for a separate issue). Strangely enough push worked fine on my iPad first gen on ios 5 before I sold it

Yeah it is. And it's not new. When I first got my phone it was the same thing. At first it was pushing then it would stop. I wound up just giving up. I keep it on push cause it works great with gmail and .me mail. Crazy thing was that after I installed 5.0 it was working great for a few days then crapped out again. Now I just open the mail app and it checks. I don't love it but I deal with it.

I'm thinking it's not with yahoo. I have tried .me mail, which is my main email, doesn't push. Yahoo doesn't push. Gmail doesn't push. Never had an issue before ios5. Was using yahoo mail and I would get the email instantly. For some people it's working fine and for some it's not. I've swapped my phone recently and it didn't work on either of them do it's not a hardware thing. It works fine for some people so it can't be a yahoo or gmail or iCloud server issue. I wouldn't think anyways I'm not an IT guy so I don't know for sure. I really think its software related. Much like the battery life thing, some people are getting horrible battery life, and others are getting great. If you browse the forum a bit there's quite a few threads on this subject

Friends, yahoo mail being kludged up and not playing nice is NOT a problem with iPhone. I have had problems with Yahoo mail on every phone device that I have ever had and this is the 4S is my first iPhone. It works, then it doesn't, and then it does again. Face it, with Yahoo, you get what you pay for.

Two weeks ago I received my iphone 4s and set up my yahoo mail on it. Yahoo worked well for 1 week and then all of a sudden stopped being pushed. I had no notifications in the lock screen and no email badges on the home screen. If I manually fetched the email it would come right through. By deleting the yahoo account and re-installing it I got it working; for an hour or so with the Verizon tech on the phone. It is like they never heard of the problem before. Then they transferred me to the Apple help desk senior tech. She basically did the same procedures that the Verizon tech did and got Yahoo working again; it lasted about an hour. It was like she never heard of the problem. I took the phone to the Verizon store the next day. The counter tech got the email working on the first try. Again it was like she never heard of this problem. I then turned the phone in for a refund since she said there was nothing wrong with the phone (but I was within the 14 day refund less the $35 fee period). I have since re-ordered the phone to give it one more try. This time with a newly opened gmail account. Hopefully gmail will work properly....

And also, why doesn't anything else push...even gmail, which from what I read is known to be the most reliable on the iPhone. And also, why is it that yahoo mail will push fine on the iPhone on my other line, which is on 4.3.5, and worked fine, without ever 1 single problem, and just suddenly stop working once I updated to ios 5?
