    Problem: Yahoo Mail keeps asking to sign in

    This started happening out of the blue i would say a week or two ago. I get a prompt asking me to sign in even though i have my password saved. And even if i press ok i'll get the message again right back. But i dont always have the problem because a little later it'll check yahoo by itself and i'll get new email alert.

    So its on and off. I had it back on WinMo 6.0 and now 6.1. Has anyone else experienced this? I have never got this with my gmail account.

    I have the same problem. I believe it's because Yahoo's free email isn't POP3, so you can't use it without signing up for their business account for $10.00 a month.

    Really dumb I know. Maybe someone knows a workaround.

    I setup my mail through the Windows built in setup (not Yahoo Go or going to their site). I have it set to get my mail every 5 minutes and I get it, only thing is the random sign in screen.
