Seriously thinking of going back to my BlackBerry Storm...
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 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.

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.

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.

...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.
