    The Incredible is ten times the unit the Storm is in every way but email. I still think BB beats Android on email. I DO NOT like gmail and want to use my Yahoo mail...been with that account for over 12 years and EVERYTHING is tied to it.

    I have been trying both Maildroid and Seven Beta to usemy Yahoo mail but neither works as well as oem BB set up. With the BB mail I can choose to delete mail off of the phone, or the server or both. Cannot do that as far as I can see with Incredible.

    Neither Seven nor Maildroid has been reliable for PUSH for me either. Sometimes a message willgo right thru, other times it takes minutes or hours!

    My wife and I work different shifts and email is how we talk to each other. I need email that is right there, right now. ANd I either need to be able to delete off phone and save on server or have access via the phone to my various yahoo folders.

    Any tips to help keep me using the Incredible?

    I have been using my msn account for about 11 years and I just have it forwarded to my gmail, push works well enough for me.. or you could try doing what just about everyone else does and text..

    I use K-9 for my email. I have a comcast account that I have had for over 10 years. It isn't push, but it checks every one minute, so it is almost immediate for my purposes. And if you ever used the integrated mailboxes on BB it also do this function pretty well.

    Couldn't you and your wife just text each other?

    I would just forward the Yahoo! to a gmail, if you had to have mail right there, right now.

    for a more instant and simpler solution why not either text like suggested or even instant messenger.

    Just FWI, you can't forward Yahoo email unless you pay for the premium yahoo email, so that rules out forwarding to Gmail.

    You don't have to pay if you go to My Account>Set language, site, and time zone>YahooAsia and then go to your Forwarding settings and set it up to forward to a gmail account, that is exactly what I do b/c all of my accounts are linked to yahoo also. It works like a charm (apparently you don't have to pay for Yahoo Mail Plus in Asia)

    Why anyone would choose to stay on yahoo these days is beyond me. You can transfer your contacts and everything else... its easy to switch.

    There's no good reason to stay.

    This guy is the kind of person who keeps their AOL account 15 years later. The Incredible is not the phone for him because he refuses to use anything but yahoo email to chat with his wife.

    End of story.

    Google and Yahoo don't mix well. Go back to your berry if yahoo mail is so important to you.
    Come on now, be nice :-)

    I think K-9 is the closest you will get to BB. Like the other person said, you can get your phone to sync each minute. Also has popup which is nice.

    I agree, that was a big change for me too. Kind of get used to it after a while.

    There is a setting within K-9 that you can switch back and forth, but you can't do it for each specific email like with BB.

    I'd say sell the Incredible if you demand the best Yahoo! email experience and that need is priority. BlackBerry is imo Alpha Dog in the email department.

    I came from a BB Storm and the email delivery was (and is) fantastic. I use Gmail as my main email service, so I'm good.

    This.

    I use gmail,so that point is not an issue. I'd rather not carry a phone then go back to BlackBerry.

    I agree. And the AOL thing was hyperbole.

    It can be frustrating finding all the little things that Android won't do that blackberry does. If yahoo email on the go is the biggest reason for you to have a smart phone, then I think you'll be happier back with RIM.

    That's not exactly true, because I didn't have 2way sync with my gmail when I had the storm.

    Android + gmail is better than bb + gmail

    Alternatively you can do the Yahoo Asia setting, and then input the port settings for the yahoo account into the HTC mail client on the Inc, just like you would do in Thunderbird or another mail client on your computer. Mail comes directly there. Pretty handy.

    BB email wasn't better for me. It always took about 15 minutes to receive a message.

    K-9 is the answer for me. Checks every minute when I need it to, but I can switch it to every 5, 10, etc.

    ...Unless I'm missing something, on 3 Incredible's I have set up, I've had the option to delete the emails from the server or just the phone. Now I don't know if Yahoo is what's causing the grief or if it's just a matter of you looking in the wrong place for this setting.

    Now, unfortunately, out of those three phones, none are mine. Mine's sitting in a factory somewhere waiting to be ready for shipment. However, I can check the path to the option for you tomorrow...

    BTW, 2 of the phones were using K9 mail, and one using the HTC mail app.
