    what is the solution?

    or better yet who do we contact to fix it? yahoo? i called att dsl tech and soon as i mentioned iphone they wanted to transfer me to wireless and im like its not the iphone its the connection to yahoo mail servers

    honestly i havent found one. i think, that somehow, att dsl is yahoo, but not. yahoo mail will push to the iphone, att yahoo wont for some reason. if you hear of a fix be sure to post. my wife's acct is the exact same way.

    I have to fetch my Att Uverse yahoo email to get it reliably.

    I have the same problem with my att.net address, and have had it for some time, and it's not just on the iphone. I have problems getting mail on my pc as well through windows mail. I also have problems going through yahoos web based site to get mail.

    on the other hand, how do you get the mail to push rather than fetch. I'd perfer to get my e-mail (when it's working) right away, instead of every 15 minutes, recently changed to every 30 mins to save battery life

    wonderful...... i thought for a while that i wasn't going to get the push feature for my att email......

    now if att can get their server part together, everything will be wonderful
