    Default Yahoo Business Email

    There have been lots of posts about setting up regular Yahoo email on the Droid but I haven't seen too many for Yahoo Business Email. My company uses Yahoo for hosting and email solutions. (They're pretty good). I had a hard time getting my mail to work but after going through this forum (and some iPhone forums which were actually more helpful than I thought they'd be), I got it to work with folder access as well.

    Go to manual setup > IMAP account and use these settings:

    Email Address: Your email
    Username: Your email
    Password: Your password

    Imap server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 143
    Security type: none

    Check login required
    SMTP Server- smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com
    Port: 25
    Security type: none

    You don't get push but its worked for me consistently and you do get to access folders. (Still doesn't work over wifi)

    Default Re: Yahoo Business Email

    I've been having issues with my Yahoo! Biz email and I just spent a good amount of time on the phone with their help desk. The IMAP info has changed. The correct info is:

    Imap server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 993
    Security type: Yes SSL

    Check login required
    SMTP Server- smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com
    Port: 465
    Security type: Yes SSL and Use Authentication

    Furthermore, if you prefer to use POP

    Incoming mail server (POP3): pop.bizmail.yahoo.com
    Use SSL, port: 995

    Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com
    Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication

    Are you able to see all your folders on the android platform when you set that up?

    I managed to set it up but i can not archive anything because my folders are not there on the android phone.
    I used to have an Iphone and they all showed up. Tried to contact Yahoo biz but was on hold for quite a few minutes so i gave up.
    Any help will be appreciated.
