    before you pay for such services you should try to set up your Yahoo account via IMAP following the next steps:

    Make sure wifi is off

    - 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=
    * password = yourpassword
    * IMAP server= imap.mail.yahoo.com
    * port = 143
    * security = none
    * optional = blank
    - Select NEXT

    You will then be prompted to sign in do so.

    Will then be taken to the SMTP 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 thats it.

    Is it really reliable long term now to use free yahoo email on the motorola droid?

    If you follow the instructions you should be fine. At least it worked for me. I highlighted in red a couple of things that were important. First turn off wifi and second there was a typo so make sure you use SMTP instead of SMPTP

    Worked like a charm...Many thanks!!
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.

    Time to die.

    Worked initally... the default for IMAP on the Incredible is android.imap.yahoo.com

    I got it running inittially, but it has not been able to do so since.
    P.S. I had the same problem with my Palm Pre (When I had it). Maybe Yahoo needs the money????

    For those of you still having troubles, if you're not using Yahoo! as your primary mail service (if it's more of a back-up account, as is the case for me) and don't need push email or a cached inbox, I suggest trying the mobile Yahoo! Mail site. Pretty nice interface and while it's not ideal it gets the job done for my purposes. I do hope they fix this though because I'd love to have the Mail app working.

    Although it was written for the Incredible, with HTC mail, the FAQ I posted here might help some of you. I noticed there are several setting missing above that are included in the FAQ.

    The IMAP settings work on my phone to see emails for the Free Yahoo acct type that I have, but when I forward an email that either has embedded HTML pictures or even a simple attachment to anyone else's email address, everything gets stripped away! I can see the stuff on my handset but all that comes across to anyone else is a plain text email.

    Free Yahoo email was said to be supported when the last OTA update came out to go to s/w version "AP:ESE81/BP:C_01.3E.03P". So what did that really mean for all of us?

    A friend of mine had the same thing happening on her new Droid Increadible but her email menu settings are different than mine. She was able to tweak a file size setting to resolve it. Probably because of the Sense UI vs my stock Android 2.1??

    This is sooo frustrating. Even VZW can't figure it out. Help!

    Default One reason why it may not work

    I know this is an old thread but I was having issues setting up my yahoo email on my droid and finally decided to turn my phone off and then turn it back on and it set up without a hitch.

    Just saying this may help any future people searching the forum.

    I know this is an old thread but has anyone tried turning their phone off and then turn it back on and try setting up their yahoo mail? Because I was having the same issue with account name or password being wrong or not able to connect to server errors. Once I rebooted my phone, it setup without a hitch.

    Hopefully this will help any future users searching the forum with this issue.

    Everytime I try it says cannot connect to the mail server. verify your account information. Server is not responding. I am finding this extremely frusterating.

    My wife always had problems with her Yahoo account until I switched her to K9, FWIW.

    For those having trouble,

    Incoming - imap.mail.yahoo.com with port 993 and SSL all certificates

    outgoing - smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com and port 587 - no security.

    Of course you can also use Yahoo mail's android app

    This works great...if your WiFi is turned off. As soon as I did, it worked like a charm, thanks! So everyone, turn off your WiFi when setting up !

    Outgoing Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Incoming Port - 993 (requires SSL)
