    Not sure if anyone else has had this problem. Most of the time the push email I have set up with my yahoo account works no problem. But randomly it doesn't and the only way I have new email is to open up email so it checks and then downloads them. I make sure I don't close email when I close apps. I usually do a reset and it fixes it until the next time. Any ideas? Thanks

    Yahoo doesn't push ... hence why you need to refresh for it to load new emails. It updates every so often ... my advice would be switch to gmail because you can actually set it up to push.

    There have been plenty of times that the yahoo account does in fact push the email. I've tested it with other accounts and sent it to my yahoo and it comes in within about 5 seconds

    I think I read in a old thread that Yahoo Push is unreliable.

    I have yahoo and it is supposed to push and it is very unreliable. Sometimes it comes immediately (within a second or two) and other times it could go hours without telling me I have new emails. Wish yahoo would fix this and would like to use gmail more to set it up as an exchange account but most of my contacts have my yahoo account already.

    Yahoo push sucks. This is why I moved to Gmail. Nothing is wrong with your iPhone.

    I have the same problem. I thought it was something with the phone too. I came from bb and have been using bb for the past 3 years with the same email account and I would always get my emails within seconds of them being sent. So I wonder why it doesnt work well with the iPhone

    Andrew, the way blackberry and iPhone get your emails are different and that is why it is different between the two phones/OSes. nothing to do with yahoo itself.

    Set up yahoo account. Go to mail and go to fetch. In advanced it will show you which account uses push and which uses fetch only. Yahoo will show fetch. What does this mean? It means what cdowner said above.
