The authentication should be the same regardless of where you're logging in. Are you using a complex password? It's probably just a simple matter of you're not entering the password correctly on the phone.

This problem seems to occur quite frequently with yahoo (mail and messenger) when on iOS devices (iPhones/iPads) and possibly it's common to other types too?

Presuming you have (or are) entering the password (correctly then it's likely an issue with yahoo user-name/password recognition - yet again.

The worst case solution is to re-install/reconfigure the app or mail account for your phone. I've done that several times with both iPhone and iPad in order to resolve the "error". And also found the "error message" simply resolved itself overnight - without need to re-instal yahoo mail account...

Many thanks for the long answer . I have replied to our colleague beachyhbt points.
This maybe something to do with my service provider vodafone.
I'm going to go back to the message I see when I try to log into Yahoo.
