    I received my new iPad this afternoon and went through the motions of setting it up. When trying to add an email account, I keep getting the same popup message: "Verification Required -- Log into your Yahoo! Account at www.yahoo.com". I did not have this problem setting up email on my iPhone 4, and Google wasn't able to return any relevant results. Has anybody else been experiencing problems setting up their email accounts? What did you do to resolve the issue?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I had the same happen to all my email accounts.You'll just have to re-type all the passwords for each account.

    Please disregard the above message -- I figured it out a few minutes after posting. It seems I actually had to log in to my Yahoo email through Safari on the iPad, after which I was able to go back to "Add Account" under "Settings" and set up my Yahoo email.

    P.S. -- Thank you, Sphinx23, for your reply

    Wrong. Delete your account under settings. Then go to Safari and clear history and cookies then try again. Worked for me.
