How do I change my email password on my phone when I changed it on my PC?

I changed my Yahoo email password and since then I have not received an email on my phone.

If you are using the Yahoo mail app on your phone, I would suggest you uninstall and re-install. I have experienced sync issues with the Yahoo mail app whenever there's activity on the PC side.

There's no need to change your password on the phone's Yahoo mail app since it will be the same account you're using. Just make sure you do uninstall the old mail app version and do a fresh install from the Play Store.

I get to step 8, but I can't find the "more settings" tab. Any ideas?

I have a GS3 and can't get past step 8. I don't see a "more settings" tab. Do you have any suggestions?

Usually, the "more settings" option is found at the bottom of the chosen account's settings. If you are at the settings app>choose the account, that could be the reason why you can't see the more settings option. You have to be able to create an email using the generic email app. From there you can access the said settings. You will need to tap the email of choice, once done, you will need to scroll all the way down to see the more settings option.

Last week I changed my email account password, and since haven't been able to reconnect?

When I tried to change the email password on my S3, I kept getting prompted saying the phone was unable to connect to my server. Nonetheless, after going through many steps (which I copied from my server, Network Solutions, and then getting a note saying that the account was set up, I have been unable to retrieve any email messages.

You are going to need to remove the account from your device fully, once you have removed the account you can then re-enter your information so that you can connect back to your email with your new password.

What settings are required on our phones so that we can receive and store emails on our phones and PC simultaneously?

If our desktop PC is switched off, we receive emails fine on our phones and can view them. However, as soon as we turn our desktop email on, any emails on our phones disappear, and new emails received on the desktop do not appear on our phones at all.

Daniel. Are you a real person? If so, my question is below?

I changed my password on my Yahoo account (YMAIL). Every time I try to change it on my Samsung S4, it says authentication failed. I have tried: I tried deleting the account, but I cannot seem to be able to add it back In. I think it was caused by: The only other detail is that I set up a 2 step login on the PC.

I bought an Android phone thinking it would help after two bouts of treatments 7 years apart, not so at?

But to no avail, all I do now is search every notebook from each app, to remember emails/passwords which after clearing that up I forgot the Android phone was what started it all. Now I don't know why you have to allow syncing of devices if the apps can't remember your emails/passwords / dazed and confused in la.?? HELP

I reformatted my Xperia Z5 and, once it was over, I can't pass the first steps because it won't recognize my email address?

Once I reformatted (with the link PC-phone app), when I am trying to register it, it won't recognize my email address. It says it needs the one it is synchronized with. I've tried every possible option I can think of, and it says that is not the one it previously synchronized with. What do you think I should do?. I have tried: I have created new addresses in Google and tried them, I've input every old password I've had. The phone won't pass the configuration phase, so it can't be used for anything. It can receive calls, though.. I think it was caused by: I think, maybe, my changing passwords synchronized the phone with an old password that doesn't recognize Google now because it is already an old one, or something of the kind... Mu PC-phone app says I must be sure of my email address before I start the repair.
