Okay, I just figured out a workaround. I tried rebooting the phone, and even clearing the cache as a last resort. This past week, I went from my Yahoo email syncing with my Email app, to not being able to connect at all.
I can login fine from a computer. What could be causing this and what can I do to fix? You might want to reset the Inbox Checking Frequency option to something other than 15 minutes. Yahoo only gives smpt accounts to it's premium users. The next thing you see is your e-mail account inbox.

Seems like it is a yahoo or droid problem? Apparently Yahoo wants you to use the app. Yahoo does not provide such a widget to my knowledge. Under manage other accounts to sign in I had something about yahoo mail for android listed. My contacts all appear in the app, and the information seems to be read-only. I did download the Yahoo app and I like it, but it apparently sucks my battery like a wino sucks night train - that's my theory anyway, and I would like to test it out!

I removed it and presto. To remove an account and add again: Go to Settings, then select the account you want to delete.
