    Default YahooMail Delivery / Received

    My concerns with my newly purchased HTC ReZound is to get the mail, YahooMail
    that is, to push through completely, catching all emails, quickly. I've
    already waited for hours for this to happen... and I cannot believe that such
    a high-tech phone is having such a problem. However, this problem did not
    present itself upon my Driod Bionic. But it was present upon the Razor --
    which is how I ended up here in less than 30 days.

    If you can help GGGGRRRRRRREAT! If you can forward me onto a site that can
    assist.

    For some reason my Rezound won't even connect to Yahoo server now kinda weird I think the last update screwed with yahoo. Sadly it won't allow me to reset it unless I do a full factory reset to the phone which isn't gonna happen. So I will wait for a fix.

    jPhillips63, I'm only into it just about 24 hours. A master reset for me is an option at this point... still working out my research options.

    heck, my contacts uploaded to the phone three time!!! THREE!!! Once again, I say "ggggggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"

    To resolve that you are given an option to link same contacts once you agree to the linking the same contacts will be linked as one. I learned that the hard way on another phone.

    If you are using the stock mail app you might want to try k9 to make sure it's not your settings. K9 is pretty reliable.

    Yahoo! has a mail app in the market that is faster than using the stock email app on the phone.

    I used to use the Yahoo Mail app. It worked well, but it drained the battery too much IMO. I'm now using K9. It has worked well, though recently I had to recreate my Yahoo email account within K9 (because of something my own fault, not Yahoo or K9's fault), and now I'm not able to send email. Anyone know the correct send mail server settings to you for Yahoo within K9?

    Funny.....I got the same problem. I don't send mail from Yahoo, just receive it. So I'd be interested in a solution too. BTW, I use Kaiten which is based on K9.

    I had a similar problem but with stock gmail app. I wasn't getting the notifications that I was receiving mail. So, this is what solved my problem and I hope it could work for you.

    go to settings > applications > manage applications > scroll to your yahoo app and press clear data.

    Good luck.
    There is no end for that which is continually beginnded.

    Would you mind sharing the mistake you made, because no matter how hard i try, i cannot get k9 to push my Yahoo email at all. No matter what the settings, I have to "poll" every "x" # of minutes or nothing happens unless I manually refresh. When I use the HTC mail app, any thing i move to any folder other than trash on the server keeps re-syncing to the inbox on my Rezound. If i delete it on my Rezound, it goes to the trash on my server. Then the cycle repeats never ending. Its sooooo frustrating!

    Is your power profile on "performance mode" and/or are you running juice defender or the like? I've never had a problem with k-9 polling email.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    Yes my power profile is on high performance, but I dont have a problem with "polling", yet polling is a battery drain if I set it to every 1 or 5 minutes. The problem is receiving true "push" like I do with the default HTC mail account. If I set k9 to poll every 2 hours, any email that comes in between that 2 hour window is missed until k9 is scheduled to "poll" and check for messages. I need "push" like Gmail, where as soon as a message is received on the server, it is immediately sent to the phone, and k9 does not do this with Yahoo. I thought it was a Yahoo issue because Enhanced Email has a similar issue, but Maildroid does Yahoo push just fine.( I just hate the ads, and I refuse to justify paying nearly $20 for a mail app to get true push for one account. The HTC mail app on my Evo 3d worked flawlessly, unfortunately the phone was tethered to a very poor Network.

    I had issues with Yahoo! mail on the Rezound (the stock HTC client is different from that on the Incredible), and it was a little irritating the way it put IM messages up top.

    In the end I resorted to just getting all my Yahoo! mail pushed to my Gmail account instead where they show up reliably and I can respond via Gmail too.

    Possibly not the ideal solution for you, but it might mean you receive your emails in a timely manner at least?
