My understanding is Google will not support Yahoo mail... kinda make sense.
It now accepts the 'incoming' server, but not the outgoing server...
Any ideas on alternate smtp server names or alternate ports?
On a GoDaddy account they suggested four different ports and it didn't work until I tried the third port.
Sk - plenty of folks have been able to set it up.
If Google won't let me read yahoo mail on my phone, that would be the end of the Droid for me.... then off to a blackberry or iPhone.
I have used this e-mail account longer than google has been around and am NOT dumping it for google.
WOW! I am glad that I came upon this thread, and if this is true, that is just one more reason to return my Droid. I have, like those before me here in this thread, been working, tirelessly, to get my Yahoo mail on my Droid, and I have gotten nowhere.
Granted, I love the Verizon network (not their rate plan!). I'm a former AllTel customer, and I hate to say this, but I just very well may go back to where I came from, and that is AT & T (was a customer for over eight years).
As a Mac user, that makes sense all by itself. The iPod/iPhone just work flawlessly with my Mac, and I don't have to worry about potentially unstable applications...
i had this same issue and after a little research found a very odd solution....
change where u are to asia this unlocks everything that you need to enter you have to to it all manually but it work i dunno why
I am not having any problems with Yahoo on my Motorola Droid. You might want to delete your account settings and then set it up like in this video.

My Yahoo! email works fine on 3G. Switiching to WiFi gives me a "Connection Error" and later "Username Password not Correct." On switching back to 3G, Yahoo! mail works fine. Tried this on 2 phones. Any suggested solution?
