Default Couldn't sign in - Yahoo! email on email app when not connected to Wifi

Odd issue, but I keep getting constant Couldn't sign in errors for my Yahoo! email accounts only when connected to mobile data, never on Wifi. Anyone ever seen this?

Try changing your APN settings, there's a thread somewhere showing what to change. Worked for my issues similar to yours.

I am having the exact same issue, it started happening to me about maybe a month or so ago. I did change my APN settings to a different one (internet2.voicestream.com) but did not add an alternate as described in the response. Did you try this and if so, did it work for you?

My solution was to install the Yahoo email app but if I don't need it, I'd like to get rid of it.

I have the same issues on my Nexus 4 using the stock email app. I went into the incoming and outgoing settings and removed the word 'android' from the IMAP mail servers. This worked for me and I am able to get the emails without the error. you can try that.
