    problems with yahoo.

    I bought my droid on the 11th of this month. The verizon tech people couldn't set up my yahoo on my droid. I finally got it to connect with my yahoo account on the 18th. I set the frequency for 15 minutes and it worked for about a day, then no more messages unless I refreshed my inbox. Today I went to refresh my inbox and kept getting a connection error pop up. After getting that a couple of times it switched to an error saying my username or password was incorrect. I tried a soft reset and also tried removing the battery for some time and still error; username or password incorrect pops up, although I have verified that the info is correct.

    If you have yahoo mail plus then it should work really good. Now If you just used the imap trick that lets you receive mail without the subscription then its pretty normal. My yahoo mail usually works but sometimes the same thing happens, the connection errors and login/pass come up. I give it awhile and it just starts working again. What I do is forward sync all my yahoo mail to my gmail account, so I can access it there anytime the yahoo is down.

    don't use the email client. it's junk and consumes a ton of resources.

    if you don't have yahoo plus, there's a workaround to enable pop within your account. you have to change your location to Yahoo Asia in the settings before you can do so (do a search).

    once you've enabled pop on your account, you can have gmail automatically check your yahoo mail for you.

    gmail checks on intervals of about 30 min.

    log into gmail.com
    click on settings in the upper right
    open the accounts and import tab
    locate the "Check mail using POP3:" section
    click Add POP3 email account
    follow on-screen instructions.

    you can also send as your yahoo account holder if you set it up in the "send mail as" in the section above.
