    Default Can't add email accounts?

    I have one gmail account and one corporate email. I need to add another account, but every time I try to I get a wait screen while the phone accesses my account details. It never goes beyond this screen. Twice when trying this I got a text message from VZWPIN with a bunch of meaningless numbers. I had the account on my phone before but had to do a factory reset to get the latest update due to a corrupt operating system. Any ideas?

    I think there are at least a couple ways of adding an account... I'd go through Settings > Accounts > Add account > choose the type and go from there... or are you using the method through the Email app???

    Do you want to use the yahoo mail app or would you like to add it through accounts? I used the app from a little while I like the push notifications but you cannot sync folders with the app. To add a yahoo account go to accounts then add account. Enter you email and pass word and make sure the automatically configure account box is unchecked then hit next. Go under the incoming server tab select imap mail server at the top. Then under server enter moto-android.imap.mail.yahoo.com. and reenter your email and password. Tap advanced settings use port 993 check use secure connection and verify certificate under the use secure connection tab select auto. Then go to your out going server setting under smpt server enter moto-android.smpt.mail.yahoo.com and renter email address and password again. Tap advanced settings use port 465. Check the use secure connection box. In the use secure password field select auto and in the authentication field select auto and check the verify certificate box. These are the settings I used to manually set up my email. I hope it works for you

    Thought I had replied to this. I was trying to add it through accounts. I waited about 15 minutes and it finally went through. No idea why it takes so long.
