    Are any Yahoo users getting a message sent to your Droid that you have already deleted earlier? If I delete a message on my Droid and I do not get to my computer to delete the message before the Droid syncs again, it will re-deliver the message. Does that make sense? I keep getting like 14 new messages. Driving me crazy. Is there a way around that?

    Thanks.

    Yep I get that too. A reboot normally stops it for a few days. Then its back. Yahoo is horrible on droid which is my everyday email app. Hope they get it fixed pretty quickly.

    I'm getting the same issue where it shows I sent the same email 10 times. And now when I went to send an email to a developer from the market it automatically sends it from my yahoo acct. Went into settings to change it and I did. Went back to settings and it checked itself like I never did it. Now my yahoo acct is my default acct to send email and there is nothing I can do about it. How do I erase this d-a-r-n thing?

    Edit: Disregard, I fixed it. Android needs to fix this ASAP!!!

    For those having difficulty setting up yahoo mail, have a look at this link (the same one provided by YoungChrisG earlier) and make sure you follow the instructions exactly. I just set mine up and had lots of the same difficulties people have posted here (unable to connect to server, etc) but I went through it step by step typing in exactly what was given on the page and it worked. Note in particular the last paragraph (which he doesn't have in the line by line instructions):

    You will then be taken to the SMPTP settings which only prompts (going form memory) you for address which is smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com. leave the port as is. Then select NEXT. Sign in. Name your account and that’s it.

    The default setup for the SMTP settings is mail.yahoo.com, you must type smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com.

    Hope this helps.

    It works for me. Set it up this morning, it has downloaded 3 new messages since I set it up, 2 from gmail and 1 from yahoo.

    Actually works for me now, the first few times I tried couldn't get it to work but now it does. You have to make sure you type everything in exactly like in the directions, because the pre-populated fields are normally wrong. I missed a couple of those and thus why it took me a while. . . oh well live and learn. This makes one more tiny reason to love the Droid even more!

    ummm... it will work for a while, but it will stop working soon. i don't know if it's yahoo side, but once it starts working it seems that yahoo finds a way to block access sooner or later. mine worked for about a day then no more. i say if yahoo is going to be a ***** about it, might as well change all my emails to gmail, which i did.

    One thing I noticed with mine, was when I was trying to access it via wi-fi rather than 3G.

    This may explain it. WIFI, wouldnt it appear as a browser same as a pc on the web and try to redirect to the standard site and not allow the uname/pw? But when running on 3G it recognizes the pipe as being from a mobile device.

    Whenever I have wifi enabled, I get the invalid username/password error. Then, I can disable wifi and run across the 3g and it works fine.

    Just a thought.

    Mine stopped working again last night just after I sent an email. Now I get wrong user name / password or connection error message. So to summarize:

    DID NOT WORK > WORKED > DOES NOT WORK AGAIN...

    Settings are the same. Also, always on 3G.

    Worked like a charm. Ben looking for this for a couple of days. I even checked the confirmation to register on this site just now on yahoo email via IMAP.

    ----

    - Go to mail icon
    - Add account
    - Enter email address in email address filed (name@yahoo.com)
    - Enter password at password field
    - Select MANUAL SETUP not next
    - Select IMAP
    * username= name@yahoo.com
    * password = yourpassword
    * IMAP server= imap.mail.yahoo.com
    * port = 143
    * security = none
    * optional = blank
    - Select NEXT

    Mine worked like a charm for a few days then got all wacky and quit working. I re-entered everything and it worked fine for a few days.

    I went into the yahoo via a PC and checked the outbox -- whoaaa!! it sent my messages (not exaggerating) 1,760 times!!! I checked a bit further. I have 2 different yahoo accounts and .... whaddaya know... it sent every single message originated from the Droid multiple times, ranging from 3-4 to several hundred. I don't know if the recipient received the message several hunfdred times or not.

    I saw some messges in the inbox that weren't in the inbox on the Droid. I "refreshed" the email in the Droid and they popped into the inbox. I hate having to check -- i just want it there. I don't want this working, then not, then sending multiple, then not receiving.

    End result.... someone else said it very eloquently... if yahoo's gonna be a ***** and not play well with my wonderful Droid.. screw 'em. I have a gmail account. I'll just send a message to everyone in my contact list saying, "yahoo sucks, I'm closing this account, please update my contact info - new email is XXX@gmail.com"

    Yahoo is a free service that charges money to advertisers. They make plenty of money to support free email service. There's not even a slim chance I'll ever pay for email - not when it's free from Gmail and works flawlessly on the Droid.

    Droid and the Android OS is the wave of the future. I see many more new Droid users vs Blackberry (the 2 heavywights) in the future. Blackberry has been unchallenged for years as the email master. OK, Blackberry wins on email when it comes to anything other than gmail. Fine, However, Droid kicks butt on EVERYTHING else. I'm dumping yahoo and Blackberry.

    I thought Blackberry was the end all, be all of smartphones. I was deluded by their superior email prowess. Now, I see that it blinded to all of Blackberry's shortcomings (browser, UI, apps, fun, screen, GPS, etc). I see that the issue with yahoo's failure is NOT Droid's fault. It is Yahoo's issue. I made the hardware switch first, then the software switch, now the email switch - I've rid myself of the Blackberry entanglement and delusion - I embrace the droid.

    Goodbye yahoo, hello gmail, welcome to smartphone excellence with Droid.

    I almost got a Droid in December, but the problem with free Yahoo mail scared me off. I've seen differing opinions whether the setup instructions as described here and elsewhere really make it work long term. I'm not real tech savvy and I don't want any hassles.
    What do you think?

    I've been following the discussions about the detailed instructions here and elsewhere, and I still see people reporting problems. I'm not real tech savvy and I don't want any hassles.
    Is it really reliable long term now to use free yahoo email on the motorola droid?
