    Default Yahoo Mail Update

    What's up with Yahoo Mail requiring you update the program OUTSIDE of the Android Market?
    Has anyone else run into this?

    Yes. The Yahoo! Mail app is forcing me to upgrade to v1.2 through a download outside the market. The app will not work without upgrading and the upgrade is not appearing in the market. I downloaded and installed the upgrade through the web browser, and received persistent FC errors when attempting to access the general settings. I uninstalled until they get their act together.

    It's forcing me to update as well. Can't use the app to read the mail until you install the apk. I think I'll wait to see how this goes before I install. What gives yahoo...

    I just installed (Epic 4G) about 30 minutes ago after doing a little research on what the heck I was potentially downloading... it seems all is well and it's a legitimate update from Yahoo, though the method of delivery (not through the market?) is a little questionable... it has a **sort of** new look u/i with some slight new features and the ability to add multiple yahoo accounts. I'm still looking for a full change-log somewhere but the changes appear to be minor at best

    Simple solution....K-9 Mail. I gave up on the Yahoo app a long time ago, never worked reliably and was too cluttered.

    After this fiasco, I decided to try K-9. I'm glad I did. The consolidation of accounts and user-friendly interface (and customization) in K-9 make me happy that Yahoo! screwed up.
