    yahoo mail fix on 2.1. Really?

    We need a subthread on this, as the main 2.1 threads are unwieldy. How is yahoo mail working for those of you who have converted. Is it working with a simple signin as promised? Has it clogged up your sent file as before? Does it really still fail on wifi? Would love to get a wide cross section of opinion. Thanks...

    Got 2.1 this morning. Ran the Email app, put in my yahoo email address/password, fiddled with the options screen and bingo, everything worked. It puts a notification of new email in my bar and is pretty darn nice.

    Remember, it only works over 3G, not WiFi.

    I'd never even tried yahoo mail before today (just used the browser for it) and I must say I am quite happy with the results.

    I've been using the browser too. They like us accessing via ad supported web. I was wondering if wifi would work if you paid for yahoo plus....

    I've been using Yahoo Mail since the original Droid 2.0.0... I've never been able to figure out where people were having issues or how it wasn't supported. I have 6 accounts... I enter in my email address, then my password and click next. That's it, it has never not worked. I think it frustrates me as much as people saying it doesn't work because I just don't get how it doesn't work for other people.

    Yeah it's coded differently or something it's about 1000x better imo opinion.

    I had gotten mine to work, but the new way it's done it alot better. Unlike you i was never able to do that on my phone, i always had to manually put in the server settings to get the email to work at all.

    Yahoo works "out of the box" now without having to change any settings. The one annoyance is that it is still filling up my Sent mail folder with about 25 instances of each message I send.

    I'm also a little surprised that the Android mail client does not support IMAP Idle and push new messages to the device. I know Yahoo supports this as I used to have it setup on my Nokia.

    Mine has always worked as well. Supposedly something to do with the approximate timeframe you signed up for the yahoo account.

    Yes it will. Same goes for using the yahoo asia workaround (search the forum for it).

    Yeah i stopped sending messages on my yahoo account because of the sent messages thing. One day i logged in and went to look for a sent message to find that i had 34000 sent messages, 33947 of them were the same message, and it was sent from my droid. Those are actually very close numbers to the real number of messages, i'm not really exaggerating.
