For some reason my phone's battery will drain constantly while trying to sync to Yahoo! Mail. I repeatingly get the error code: 8007274C. All credentials are correct and I experience no issues logging into my mail account via IE for WP. I've tried deleting the Yahoo! Mail account from settings and re-adding it and the phone will create a live tile with new messages updated, but will continue to sync even after fetching new emails until I get the same message. I just don't understand what's going on here and it's so frustrating. I got a new replacement Lumia 928 and never had this issue on my old one. I can sync to my mail account with my old iPhone flawlessly. Has anyone else had this issue and resolved it?

I had an issue similar to yours on my 810 and instead of choosing yahoo mail I chose "other account " and after I did that I stopped getting that error :) ..... but if that doesn't work ... try manually setting it upthey say your mistakes are your best teachers but how can it teach you something if you don't know what you did wrong :/ ? or maybe im thinking too much again

A few other options I've tried: plugging my phone into my PC and renaming the device, a hard reset, changing my username from my full address to just my username, setting up a second verification password, and finally using the IMAP settings Android uses. No luck whatsoever. Still pulls new emails and times out syncing with a connection error. I'm about to say I'm done with WP8. I can't use this phone to do the simplest and most essential of tasks: checking and replying to my important emails.

Its possible. Changed my password. Now my iPhone and all previous devices linked to mail can no longer connect. Added my Yahoo account with the new password on the Lumia and still getting the same connection error. I got this error out of the box. I doubt a restart will fix it, but I do believe I have tried everything else.

As much as I've tried to like WP8, the OS just hates me. My first phone had issues getting notifications and my tiles were all dead. Oddly enough the only tiles that updated were the me tile, app updates, and twitter. The phone ultimately froze into a blue screen after only owning it since May. The replacement is more of a hassle than before. I receive toast motivations and live tiles are actually working (for now), but email won't sync and (for whatever reason) twitter notifications and tile updates never show. WP8 is a buggy, unreliable mess. In theory live tiles are a great idea, but MSFT missed the mark on it big time.

Strangest thing happened to me. The last two days I've had my email pinned to my Start screen via IE - which sucks because I can't sent attachments. For the hell of it, I tried again and now it syncs fine. Must have been a server issue with Yahoo? Facebook chat now is broken for me though. Ugh.

I have similar problem since 1 week ago. I tried many different ways, removed account, add it back etc etc... And finally I found a solution that works... for now.
Somehow an email within the last few days caused this "Sync Issue". So I deleted my Yahoo Mail account from my Windows phone, used my PC to move all my emails to the Archive folder and only leave the ones from today. Then I added back my Yahoo Account at my windows phone. The sync works now without complaining anymore more nor asking for password anymore.
