    I can receive emails from all my accounts on the Apple email app, and can send from all accounts EXCEPT Yahoo. I’ve sorted through all the “fixes” – deleted the account and readded it, changed the password etc NOTHING WORKS FOR ME. I can send the email if I turn off wifi and turn on cellular data but that is unsat. So I gave up and installed the Yahoo email app and just use that instead.
