Push email finally working on iPhone – Yahoo! Push Email fix brings push to many

iPhone Yahoo! push emailWhen Yahoo! rolled out its push-email service (the only push email service specifically tailored and developed for the iPhone) oh so long ago, we were all a bit disappointed in the push service’s performance. Or, actually, it’s the lack of performance that left us in want of some push email.

Well, it seems that Yahoo! has made some server-side changes to their iPhone push email system, and we’re hearing reports that many iPhone users are getting their precious email pushed to their iPhone. Go try it out, your mileage may vary.

If push emails aren’t working for you right away, try:

  • logging into your Yahoo! mobile email account and logging out
  • delete and recreate Yahoo! email account on iPhone
  • create a new Yahoo! email account
  • restore your iPhone (if you dare)

Let us know how you like push email on your iPhone!

    Well, thats good news, in the UK the o2 mail server is rubbish, it looses mail and never updates,oh and o2 dont support it so you cant even phone them!! I changed to imap google mail and instanly got all my mail and they even give you settings through the site.

  • Will Park

    Google IMAP is awesome!

    But, I think Yahoo! Push Email on the iPhone is an even better solution.
    :cool:

    Thank you very much for the information regarding imap/pop setting on apple iphone.

    * logging into your Yahoo! mobile email account and logging out

    * create a new Yahoo! email account
    * restore your iPhone (if you dare)

    OMG!
    i got a yahoo specifically for push…
    it doesn’t work..
    period.
    i turned off fetch for gmail, and i tried to connect manually to get the test that i sent myself… google got it first (i sent to both)
    hm, this is a giant flaw considering it’s for iphone…

      My Iphone was not getting Yahoo push email…I fixed it!!!!
      People kept telling me to re-set setting, re-boot phone, erase yahoo mail and re-install……..
      WHAT I DID—- Delete all your emails from the phone and re-install yahoo first, then install your other e-mails. I get me Yhoo mail ASAP now, working like it use to…. GOOD luck.

    YMail Push.. What a disappointment. I signed up for YMail specifically for the Push capability to my iPhone. Alas it hasn’t worked once and I’ve checked my settings over and over again.

  • Curt

    you realize that’s instructions for fetch (send/receive) email, not push, right?

    After setting up my new ymail account on my iPhone, Push didn’t work at all. However, after a hard reset of my phone…all is working perfect.

    For those who are having problems….try hard resetting your phone by holding the power button and home button at the same time for about 5 seconds. This will restart you iPhone and might help resolve your yahoo mail push problem. It sure worked for me!

  • Andrew V

    Im going with Chad F, hard reset worked for me too!

    • oliver 1

      IPone restart worked for me as well. Recommend to do this first.
