I'm having an issue with the stock email app where I can only seem to get my emails while on wifi. Anytime I leave my house or work where I am connected to wifi, I get a message that says "Can't Sign In". If it makes any difference, I am using my Yahoo email account. I know one solution is to use the official Yahoo app, but I want to do what I can to stick with the stock email app

I saw a tip somewhere on XDA that said to change the Incoming and Outgoing server settings and this worked for a bit but the settings seem to change itself. The tip was to delete the word android from both server names, changing the Incoming server from "android.imap.mail.yahoo.com" to "imap.mail.yahoo.com" and changing the Outgoing server from "android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com" to "smtp.mail.yahoo.com"

In the meantime I started using the official Yahoo Mail app, but I'd like to use the stock email app if anyone could help me? Thanks

It could help you: http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=..._US&id=SLN4075

EDIT
I've just tried with a Yahoo address email and the stock Email app. Everything is automatically configured. I can show you my settings if needed.

Make sure you didn't prevent background data for the app
