Has anyone experienced issues adding their Yahoo Mail Account to the Samsung Email App? I have a continuing issue where Samsung Email is unable to validate my Yahoo Mail however I get an email from Yahoo Stating that my account has been signed in through Samsung Email.

You're not alone. Same issues here. I've tried all sorts of things to access my Yahoo mail from Samsung's native e-mail app but no luck.
In the past, Yahoo mail had a setting where you could allow access to 'less secure deviced', which always did the trick. Now this setting has disappeared from Yahoo mail, so I'm clueless as to how to fix this.
No, I'm not installing the Yahoo mail app when I have a perfectly capable Samsung e-mail app. No need for 2 apps doing the same thing. As a workaround I now forward my Yahoo e-mail to a Gmail account. Not ideal but it does the trick for now.
I started having the same issue yesterday. I have tried literally everything. Resetting my phone, trying to change my Yahoo account security settings, deleting cache data. Nothing has worked. I tried logging in on the Samsung Email with a Google account and that works. I tried two Yahoo accounts and neither of those worked so I think the issue is the with the Samsung app itself.
I was having the same issue. I've found a temporary fix that will at least give you access to Yahoo emails.
In Email setop, choose Other, not Yahoo. Enter your email address, but then choose Manual Setup (You won't go to the automatic Yahoo sign-in screen. Choose Pop3 and enter your password. (also enter password for Outgoing server). You'll have access to you inbox, but not any subfolders you may have
Same issue. I'm fairly certain the issue is with Yahoo. I'll try the "other" work-around. I think Yahoo wants us to download their app. Nope! I agree, I don't need 2 apps doing the same thing.
I did find out on Android forums that it has something to do with the latest Chrome Update. Although it could be something happening to make email users change to the Gmail or Outlook or Yahoo mail. I like the Samsung Mail app. Used it for a long time.
