Yahoo has had email issues today – we saw this in our outgoing email queues, but it could have affected an MUA’s ability to do POP3 and SMTP.

Ok, folks. I have checked this situation using strictly IPv4 and this error is still taking place. So, by deduction I do not see this as an IPv6 issue.

I have a Galaxy Nexus, have been running IPv6 with not extra issues other than those noted in this forum (i.e. long GPS lock, current DNS server issue not being full IPv6) and ran into a strange problem with my Yahoo! Mail using the Email app. When I am at home, i use my home WiFi exclusively for all Internet access. My WiFi at the house is all IPv4 as my ISP (Verizon FiOS) and the router only supports IPv4. My personal routers do support IPv6, but they don't do much in that mode, obvoiusly. I have them set to "Auto Config" and they set up the IPv6 address based on the MAC address, and set the protocol to "4to6" tunneling. Again, I think all this does is sit there waiting for IPv6 from FiOS. A variable, nonetheless.
When on WiFi, I get a message after my phone attempts to sync with Yahoo! that the passowrd is incorrect. I get an opportunity to supply the password, and it continues to fail even though I can verify through other means the password is fine. When I disconnected from WiFi and got on the road this morning, I noticed that the password problem was "fixed" and the sync worked just fine.
First, I have no idea if this is related to IPv6, but it seems to be coincidental that this came up after I had this set with no issues and in the last dayit has come up.
I have all of my software up to date - apps and stock OS.
If there is something I need to try, or data needed, let me know.
