    Default

    My only works through 3G and not on WIFI.

    I got it to work with the following manual settings:

    Incoming server settings
    IMAP Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    port: 143
    Security type: none

    Outgoing Server Settings
    SMTP Server: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 587
    Security type: none
    Require Sign In. Checked
    Username: <Your user name>
    Password: <your password>

    Are you using POP3 or IMAP settings? If you're using one then try the other. The right one may be IMAP, though.

    Default Successful Yahoo Email setup in Optimus V

    Mgnet, I was having the same issue as you. I tried the settings suggested by joop1987 (many others online suggested those as well) but they did NOT work for on my Optimus V default email app.

    This IS what was successful for me:

    Incoming Settings
    --------------------
    username: <username>@yahoo.com
    password: <your password>
    IMAP server: android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
    port:143
    security type: none
    IMAP Path Prefix: <leave blank>

    Outgoing settings
    -------------------
    SMTP server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 587
    Security Type: none
    Require Sign-in: checkbox checked
    username: <username>@yahoo.com
    password: <your password>

    Hope this works for you too.

    These settings worked for me, while the old ones did not.

    The yahoo app is really bad. I couldn't get my yahoo mail to work on the stock OV unless I had yahoos terrible app. When I upgraded ROMs I was able to use the Android email app without having to change any settings.

    The yahoo email app is actually bad *** for me. I have 3 different accounts and all my mail arrives quick style through 3G but I don't know about wi fi though. I'm using mrg's build.
