i did Restore as new iPhone - no backup. my suggestion to you would be doing the same and NOT using a backup, yet
once you are done restoring add your Yahoo account very first thing and see what happens. obviously if it does not work then you can use your latest backup and move on OR if it does correct the issue then you will know

Yahoo has admitted that it's a Yahoo problem, and it's not just iPhones that are affected. If you set up or have an existing Gmail account you can forward your Yahoo mail to Gmail, you don't have to have the Yahoo premium email service. That's exactly what I did; I now get two of each email that is sent to my still-existing Yahoo account, but it's worth it to get my email pushed. This is the second time this year that I've had prolonged problems with Yahoo mail not being pushed, and I've given up.
EDIT TO ADD: It's pretty much established fact that the problem is with Yahoo and not with iPhones or any other cell phone. I sure wouldn't want to go through the hassle of restoring my iPhone and reloading everything back - lots of people have done that and it hasn't fixed anything. But that's just my opinion, YMMV.

And now, to add insult to injury, my Yahoo account which I no longer use has been hacked, and has sent spam to all of my contacts three times! That account is now deleted completely - I am convinced that Yahoo has no interest in resolving any problems. Such a shame to have to walk completely away from a service I've used since the mid 1990's. It would seem that their corporate and financial problems are insurmountable.

If yahoo is down, then you should have a warning about it all over the internet, it is something used by millions of users every time so there must be a lot of hype about it, it seems to be a local problem with the settings of your iphone!

Yahoo mail itself is not "down" nor has it been. For the last six weeks ago it has not pushed emails to any number of different devices across all providers, including my iPhone and iPad. There are threads about it on any number of message boards, including Apple's boards. Yahoo also has a thread which I linked to a page or so back, where they admit it's their problem and the engineers there were supposedly working on it. It's six pages of people complaining about the "push" function not working since late May. It does work for some lucky users and doesn't work for many, myself included.
Again, Yahoo has admitted it is a problem on THEIR end - this is not just a handful of people too stupid to fix their own settings on their own phones, whining about Yahoo. If this had not been the second time this year that Yahoo has not worked on my devices for a prolonged period I would not be publicly complaining. Seeing others posting about the same problem, along with my personal experience of two outages in less than six months, both of which went on for more than a month, led to to post these comments.

Re: Yahoo mail or an outage?
Bumping this back up - I just happen to log into my Yahoo account on the web and saw I had 15 new emails that I never got on my phone. Restarted my phone, no help. I deleted the yahoo account and added it back and nothing. Anybody else having issues? When I go into my inbox, it just says "Checking for email" and stays like that.

Re: Yahoo mail or an outage?
Unfortunately I am now having this issue. Mail worked fine last night before I went to bed but as of this morning I have not been able to get Yahoo mail thru the iPhone or iPad mail clients. I can get mail thru the Yahoo app. I have read this forum and others and tried many of the suggestions but so far no luck. For the others that have posted with this problem did it finally correct itself and if not can anyone give me some guidance. I hate it when things don't work right. Kicks my OCD into overdrive.
