I did this one and it works great. FORGET the POP3, Here are the instructions to forcing IMAP to work.
Motorola Droid - Setting Up Yahoo Mail IMAP | Mobile Technology Deals and Help
I tried all the imap walkthroughs, and none of them worked. I saw a reference to changing your Yahoo! to Yahoo Asia, but it didn't explain how to do it. That is why I created the walk through for this. I have seen all the other posts for IMAP, and how a lot of people still can't get it to work. That walkthrough is mentioned in numerous other threads too.
I am confused on this as I have two yahoo accts that work fine. Why would they work for me and others and not you?
Because their can be multiple reasons. Primarily yahoo trying to avoid giving the free mobile email . Also some people have different versions of yahoo and some have granfathered seetings.
I have been using the yahoo asia pop connection successfully for over a month. Didn't post it here, though, because I didn't want to make it any easier for yahoo people to find it (and thus shut down). :-)
THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!! i finally got my yahoo working with this method
If this is all Yahoo blocking Google then this is supreme suckage. I have so much email on Yahoo it is more than just inconvenient to change everything over to Google GMail. BTW I have the Yahoo Plus $20.00/yr and it still screwed up.
Thanks for the workaround. I will send a google voice invite!
Any more success stories using this method? I want as much feedback as possible because if people are still having trouble I will begin trying to figure another workaround for people who couldn't get it to work this way.
