I have 2 yahoo accounts, I use the stock email app because I have comcast and work email that utilize that app as well. One of my yahoo accounts worked fine, no issues setting it up, the other I am getting an "authentication failed" message. Anyone else get that? Any thoughts as to how to resolve it?

You can go yahoo support center. or again send authentication mail.. And please tell me, did you set up recovery mail when you create account?

This is what I did when everything else failed.
Try to remove the sim in your current (faulty) phone and use a similar phone's SIM - if you have a friend whose emails are ALL correctly setup on his/her phone, ask to use his/her SIM. Make sure other phone (and SIM) have successfully setup all emails. Power down the 2 phones, use the good SIM to setup email on your (faulty) phone. Then change back the sim and you should be good.....
