    Hi guys, I'm recently converted to the world of android and loving my phone.
    I do have a issue with the default mail app though.
    When I tried to set up my yahoo mail account it keeps telling me the name / password incorrect.
    It's a yahoo.co.uk address.
    When I change the address to yahoo.com it works and sets up the account and I can receive my email with out a problem.
    But this means that any emails I write, be it fresh or replies, get sent from a yahoo.com address which doesn't exist, this mean people can't reply to me without changing the email address each time. It not a massive issue but frustrating and annoying when you in the middle of a covnversation and have to retype address each time

    I know you can get a yahoo mail app but would like to keep all my mail in one place

    Anybody have any ideas?

    I'm not in the U.K., so I haven't seen anything similar. But Yahoo has an app (at least in the U.S. version of the app store). Might be worth trying that.

    Yes.... Yahoo email works fine with the GS3. I setup my yahoo on the stock email app, loaded but for some reason wouldn't sync very well. I found the Yahoo app in the Play store and ever since setting that up it has worked great! It synched; loaded all my previous folders, contacts, saved sent messages...all works 100% and no issues with deleting emails from the phone but still showing on server when checking from pc.

    I've used both the Yahoo app and the standard mail app without any issues. For what I use Yahoomail for, the stock email app works fine.

    I got the yahoo app besides using the stock email, it seems to be pushing emails as soon as they come. I would download the app and see what your results are! cheers!

    Why don't you send yourself an e-mail to another e-mail address and check where it comes from then try to reply to yourself?
