After installing Windows 8 and clicking on the e-mail app, all my yahoo mail was imported. If I ask now to synchronise, I get a message: (name) is not available. What can I do?

I had the same thing with an IMAP account. Installing the system updates and restarting seemed to solve it. – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Nov 8 '12 at 18:28

I have the same problem, but try to download a .csv file (in Yahoo settings) with all email contacts and update it manually.

Try re-configuring your account, as I have experienced the same with my GMail account before.
