Re: cannot login to mail. keeps asking to verify password.

I am seeing the same issue too. I login to my account and I briefly see my inbox before I get the Yahoo! screen asking me to verify my password. Re-enetring my password does not help as it seems to recognise it at this screen.

 

My wife's Ovi email has no such login problems.

Re: cannot login to mail. keeps asking to verify password.

In fact I just changed my password, by entering the "forgot password dialogue" from the verify password page. I then went to my mail and I got redirected back to the verify password page again. Entering my new password does not work.

It would appear that there is something wong with my account setup, not with my passwords, but what to do?

I can't sign in from my phone either (E7) using mail application both before and after chnaging my password, so its not browser or PC related.

I have logged in successfully whilst the transition to Yahoo was ongoing, but before the mail history was added.

I can login to OVI account services, but not mail

I can login in via www.ovi.com with my password and get access to my contacts, ovi store etc. However when I switch to mail, it asks me to login again and I get in to the same loop of seeing the email inbox and then immediately being asked to verify the password.

 

Arrggghhhh!

Re: I can login to OVI account services, but not mail

Just been on phone to ovi twice and they are useless.

 

They cant do anything and i have to wait until the 26th april when the conversion is finished to be able to accsess my account. They cant forward my emails to another account for me. i am so **bleep** off right now. they are useless.

 

They suggested removing your ovi account from ur phone and loading it back on. but thi did not work for me.
