About six years ago, I made a yahoo email account, and I was using it on my Windows 7 computer.
Nowadays, I have to travel a lot, so I want to configure it on my phone as well. But the problem is yahoo mail is not working on my iPhone.
Each time I try to set up my yahoo account, it displays an error that says Yahoo can’t connect to the server.
So my question is, why does my iPhone won’t connect to the yahoo mail server?December 9, 2019 at 4:22 pm #6150Varun TiwariParticipant

Talking about the most fundamental issue behind yahoo mail not working on iPhone is a configuration issue.
If you don’t correctly put your account information, iPhone won’t be able to communicate with the yahoo mail server.
So you should check the yahoo email address and login password. After that, you should try to connect with your yahoo account.
