Whenever your iPhone is not syncing the emails from a yahoo account, check the various reasons below-
- Server Configuration issue.
- No Internet Issue.
- Authentication mail problem.
- Mail Application Problem.
So here, we are giving you some tricks to fix the problems with it.
Server Configuration Issue-
The server configuration issue can be one of the most common reasons behind yahoo not receiving emails on the iPhone.
Whenever people add their yahoo account into the phone, but they don’t configure it correctly with the correct yahoo information.
Further, it blocks your iPhone to communicate with the yahoo mail server.
Here I am sharing the details about yahoo mail server information: you should confirm it.
Incoming server Problem –
Incoming server address- imap.yahoo.com
Port NO- 993
Username – Your yahoo mail address
Password- your yahoo mail password.
Authentication Type- SSL / TLS
Outgoing server Information –
Yahoo outgoing mail server address: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Yahoo’s outgoing mail server user name is your email address.
outgoing mail server port: 465 or 587
No Internet Problem –
Also, do not forget to check the internet connection on your iPhone.
Try to open the yahoo mail website using safari or any other browser (you are familiar with).
Also, try to switch the network, and then try to sync with the yahoo mail server.
Let’s say if you are using the iPhone with mobile data, disable it, and connect your iPhone directly to the WiFi.
Now try to access the internet.
Mail Application Problem –
When you have an old mail application, and you haven’t updated it for a while. It may lead you to the iPhone not syncing to the yahoo mail problem.
So you should check for the mail application update first.
Also, try to install another third-party email application into your phone like- outlook, lotus, email, etc. now configure your email on that application.
Let’s see it works this time or not.
