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?

windows 10
Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 1 year ago

Thank you. First, can you log into your yahoo account? And if so, what browser, application etc. are you using to access it?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can log into my account.
Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 1 year ago

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:

because I also get my emails on my smart phone
Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 1 year ago

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)

it is a Apple 5s
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how am I assured that my problem was fixed and that in the next hour I will not get the message that my settings are out of date again. Was there some change to the settling on my computer or phone that I should be aware of/
Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 1 year ago

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

email.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
delete from server is not a option
Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 1 year ago

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,

etc.

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?

it is a 5s some of your directions aren't matching any settings I have
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
when I click on my Yahoo mail I have these choices notifications, background app r, cellular data.
Email technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 1 year ago

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.

I am still getting the message to change my password ***** the video didn't help with change the settings. I am frustrated and have run out of time and am not satisfied. Would prefer not to pay for not resolving my problem when it wasn't resolved.

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.
