    Hi guys. New android user here after finally dumping my Blackberry (Yay!).

    So far I love the OS and my sprint Hero. The only fly in the ointment so far is that I cannot find any info on how to set up a Rocketmail account on my phone. Even the guy at sprint didnt know.

    Can someone please tell me how to do this? Rocketmail is really just a yahoo email but I need all the correct info to enter into my phone to get it to work. Is this even possible?

    Thanks, look forward to hearing from you.

    You have to pay for an upgrade to yahoo mail plus to be able to use it with third party software. Here are the settings if you pay for it:

    * Incoming Mail Server (POP3): plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
    Use SSL, port: 995
    * Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication

    Have you tried importing your rocketmail account into your gmail account and then just managing both through the same gmail area?

    If I have to pay then poopoo on rocketmail and all things yahoo. I mean, they are already bleeding off users left and right to google and they now want me to pay just to use a basic service everybody else gives for free. Oh well. Ask not for whom the bell tolls...

    @drm2blv- yes, I tried importing and i get a message saying that gmail cant identify the pop server.

    I have searched the web and find many people with this problem but no solution. Well, I take that back...there is something about switching to yahoo.co.uk setting to get it to work. But this is rapidly getting to the 'jumping thru hoops' stage.

    you know what, i kinda like gmail better anyway.

    Once you convert to gmail you will be sad you havent been using it the whole time. The email experience is awesome, the threaded messages and all are killer.

    Depending how many people you email on yahoo just give em the new email address or just put on an "out of office" reply with the new contact information in it.

    Nerd's fix is correct for his phone, not quite for MyTouch

    I had to use alternate SSL setting on outgoing page-(Accept all Certificates) and it came right up--Incoming page identical

    Thanks Nerd

    No need for Yahoo upgrade to use rocketmail

    NO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THAT... you have to set it up manually with an IMAP type... my only problem is it worka for standard yahoo but how do you so it with a rocketmail yahoo account
