Why aren't my emails pushing to my iPhone? PLEASE I NEED HELP!!


Jul 20, 2008
Okay ive been trying so hard to fix this and no luck :(, first i tried to set up a gmail.com account on my iphone, it worked.... problem is i can only "fetch" email, okay plan 2. i created a yahoo.com account and on there site it says yahoo can push to an iphone, so i just forwarded my mail from my gmail account to my new yahoo account, and i sent out some test emails, i only recieved an instant email to my iphone one time out of 10 times, the other times i had to manually go into my "mail" on my iphone and it started fetching, everything is perfect i have my options on my iphone set to "push" not fetch and yahoo is known for push emails so what do i do? i really need help... i need to recieve my emails instantly like on my blackberry, thank you so much

Try deleting the Yahoo mail account from the phone and then add it again.

Also get up to date with your Yahoo mail client's settings and make sure everything is good there.
