Yahoo mail on my windows htc 7.5 phone suddenly stopped syncing Jan 2016. I can access yahoo mail on all other devices (laptop, desktop, etc.) Just not on Windows phone. I've tried deleting, then re-adding mail acct on phone, taking out battery awhile...Nothing works. Always "error" or "attention required" message on phone. Please help.

From my answer here, https://windowsphone.stackexchange.com/a/12512/19301

  1. Enable 2 step verification in yahoo account.
  2. Generate app specific password and in the list of apps select "Other" and clicked on generate.
  3. Enter the 12 digit code in place of password.

Now it will login successfully.
