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.

Try these settings. They come from this page

Incoming Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
Outgoing Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Incoming Port - 993 (requires SSL)
Outgoing Port - 465 (requires SSL/TLS)
Username: full email address (for example, bill@yahoo.com or bill@rocketmail.com)
Password: the password you login to Yahoo! with.
