Re: Mac Mail Not Syncing with Yahoo Mail

I realized that the problem must be with my Mac Mail. So what I did is just remove my Yahoo account from Mac Mail and "reloaded" it. Now it is syncing. Not sure why it stopped working in the first place. Thanks for all you help.

Greetings @fulofgrace

 

I believe you are looking at this in the wrong way.  Your device should be syncing with your Yahoo account, once that happens you should see the same changes across your other devices.

 

Have you contacted Apple support for help setting up Yahoo mail in Mac Mail, on your iPad, and iPhone?  What version of Mac Mail are you using?  What email app are you using on your iPad and iPhone?  What iPad and iPhone are you using?

Please note that the classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available after January 30, 2019. At that time, you'll be upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or basic Mail, depending on your browser's compatibility.

If you are not using the Yahoo app then make sure the email program is using IMAP and not POP3.

In 25 days (January 31, 2019) the Classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available. At that time you'll be upgraded to the newest version of Yahoo Mail or Basic Mail depending on your browser's compatibility.

I will look at Apple Forum as well. 

Mac Mail Vdersion 12.2

I use the mail app on my Ipad and Iphone

Iphone 7 plus and Ipad Air 

 

What throws me off is that it is not syncing on my web mail either.

What I would do is to remove your Yahoo account from the default mail account on your mobile devices.  Download the BlueMail app or the Yahoo Mail app and set up your Yahoo account.  You could stop by your local Apple store or contact Apple support to make sure your phone is set to correctly snyc with your Yahoo account.  If you need to manually set up your Yahoo account use these IMAP settings.
