Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
In order to help you, I need to know what operating system you have on your device. Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8.1, 10, or do you have a Mac?
Thank you. First, can you log into your yahoo account? And if so, what browser, application etc. are you using to access it?
Okay, last thing before we troubleshoot. How do you know there are missing emails? or 'few emails'?
We are going to turn off any filters you have first. Please follow the guide below to check if they are in place:
Let me know the results please.

Great job. That is definitely troubleshooting at its best. Thank you for that.
Filters and settings are usually the culprit. So, we will start there. Your phone is taking all your emails before you computer can get them.
It is a setting on your phone most likely. Can you tell me what model your cell phone is? (this actually happens quite often. we can fix it)
Here is what we need to do.
Go to your iphone settings. select mai/contacts/calendars, click your email account,
advanced, then make sure delete from server is set to never.
Also make sure your delete messages is set to at least 7 days or so. Even never, but this will clog up your
If you computer is not getting the emails, but phone is, that means they are being 'set' to just the phone and deleted
from server before it can hit your computer.
Reasons it will continue to ask you for a password:
Logging in to several devices to access yahoo mail, someone is attempting to log in, not the latest version of the app installed on your phone,
You can always uninstall and reinstall yahoo on your phone to get it to stop.
What option do you see there? You said this is an iphone 5?
One moment, i will send you what i followed for your version.
This is a video to turn that feature 'off', but we do not want to delete it from the server. We actually want that delete from server
set to never.
Did you actually change your password? You would have received immediate feedback saying "Password ***** changed" or some such.
If you are unable to set a password ***** login, how did you manage to set up your smart phone to receive e-mail? That sounds highly suspect.
