I keep getting this window on my iPhone 5 saying to enter my password for the yahoo email account. When I enter it . It goes to verifying and then comes back with Yahoo server not available .Try later. The password is correct. I am sure of it. I have deleted the account and opened a new Yahoo account. Same thing happens. Powered off and came back still same.
