Morning,

Spotted an issue in my Yahoo mail this morning. My 3 Yahoo email accounts seem to be storing SENT at about 10 to 150 at a time.

(Sender Name) Attachments Re: Save the Date!!! Tue, 2/9/10 4KB
(Sender Name) Attachments Re: Save the Date!!! Tue, 2/9/10 4KB
(Sender Name) Attachments Re: Save the Date!!! Tue, 2/9/10 4KB
(Sender Name) Attachments Re: Save the Date!!! Tue, 2/9/10 4KB
etc.

This pattern can go on for about 150 messages or so.. granted 4KB isnt that big, but some are bigger, most are @ 4kb and a handful are smaller.

1) Does anyone else see this? I have my sync set to an hour, if it helps.
2) Is it an issue with Yahoo or my Droid or both?

Feel free to ask other questions if you have them...

my yahoo sent every message hundreds of times.
I have no idea why. I got tired of screwing sound with yahoo and just switched to gmail. Sorry, I don't have an answer or a solution. But, I can tel you it's happened to me and it only happened with my yahoo account. So, I can conclude that the problem is yahoo - and not android or user error.

oh... you said to feel free to ask other questions.... do flowers feel love?

Ok thanks for the reply.... what's weirder still, I just deleted literally 1000 messages from my 3 Yahoo accts a few days ago, and not only are they back, the dates on the emails are OLDER than my delete dates..... WOW.

As for your other question, I'm going with NO, but they can BRING it..... :D

Replicated Sent Mail Problem

Initially, I noticed that the "sent" box would show 2 copies of each email. Then it grew faster and faster till some emails showed hundreds of copies.

Most of the "how-to's" on getting Yahoo mail set up on the Droid list the outgoing mail set-up as "smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com" using Port 587. Recently, I noticed one that listed Port 25. While that one wasn't specifically addressing the sent mail replication issue, I decided to try Port 25. It seems to have solved the problem. Since then, I've noticed that same suggestion (with apparent good results) a few other places.

P.S. I'm on Verizon. Some of these issues/solutions seem to be carrier specific.

Good luck.

Thanks for the info, and for the testing. I'll give port settings a try. I've basically given up on yahoo and moved everything over to gmail. But, it would still be nice to have yahoo set up correctly
