Yahoo Mail broken on 1088?
Up to 1088, Yahoo Mail was working flawlessly on my PB, complete with folder (IMAP) support, and the ability to keep messages indefinitely - unlike the native email app.
Since 1088, it no longer can do this and won't sync and populate folders and sub-folders properly - at least on my device.
Anyone else have this issue?
Only RIM can't do email!

It all seems to be working fine here... Maybe delete/re-add the account?

From the wording of the OP's post, it seems like he is saying that he is using a sideloaded Yahoo mail app rather than Messages (he does state "unlike the native email app"), and it is this app that isn't working. How he blames RIM for a sideloaded app not working correctly is beyond me.

OK Michel, fess up, what app are you using to access your Yahoo mail? Maybe the developer can answer your questions about why it doesn't work any longer under 1088.
But as diegonei pointed out, you can have IMAP folders in the native app. Too bad it's limited to the last 30 days of messages. Note though that your messages are not lost after 30 days: you can still get at them on the Yahoo website via the PB or using an email program like outlook on your laptop or desktop puter.Patrick from Calgary

Knowledge is, indeed, power.
Ok guys. I dont use the native email precisely because it doesnt keep the emails in the subfolders indefinitely. The sideloaded Android app did this flawlessly - until 1088. Thats what I'm crying about.
A tablet that cant do email properly is a joke in my view.
I'll keep the PB till it dies, but I wont be crying at the funeral. And I'll never get another one.

And in the next post, you make two statements that I find hard to swallow. If the tablet doesn't work for you, by all means, sell it and get something that does! I fail to understand people that hold to thinks that are not working for them.
Stop suffering and posting rants. Put the PlayBook up on eBay, do some hands-on testing on the nearby tech shops, find the thing that suits you. Bang. Problem solved.
That's what I'd do, anyway...

If you do a search you will find many who agree with me that the native email is c****. Too bad, as the hardware is nice. So I keep the tablet and hope BB10 will make it functional, but have no real hopes that RIM will get that right in my lifetime. Meanwhile, I've got lots of computers around, and a nice Android tablet - all of which let me get to email properly. The original post was directed at folks that do use a side-loaded Android app to get their email, etc, and I was hoping for a response from them.

I too hope you find a solution. I suggest deleting the app using some software that will make sure all its info is gone, 3fingering and installing it back.
