    Arrow Yahoo - Unable to send mail

    Anyone experiencing problems with sending Yahoo email this afternoon on their HTC Incredible?

    For about the past 3 hours, all outgoing messages have been queued in my Outbox. In addition, I keep getting Notifications of "Unable to Send Mail".

    Are these settings still valid:

    Outgoing Server Settings (11-13 should already be pre-configured from prior screen)

    11. Login Required checkbox checked
    12. username= name@yahoo.com
    13. password = yourpassword
    14. SMTP server = smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    15. security type = None
    16. server port = 587
    17. Click next.

    Are you on wifi???

    Yahoo has trouble on Wifi.. unless you use K9...

    Also.. there is a "official yahoo mail app" which I presume would be invulnerable to this wifi limitation.

    No, not on Wifi; and the weird thing is it was working just fine up until a couple of hours ago.

    Although not using Wifi, the following solved the problem:

    When you add a new account, select IMAP under the protocol menu>enter your email>enter your user name which is your email>enter your password>for IMAP server enter: android.imap.mail.yahoo.com>security type is SSL>server port is 993

    then hit next

    for SMTP server enter android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com>security type will be SSL> server port will be 465
