    Problems with Yahoo mail

    I keep getting a username and password problem when setting up my yahoo e-mail.

    I have typed it in a dozen times... I can't be wrong every time. I retyped it in on my desktop and get into the account.

    What the heck is going on here? Any ideas?

    I have read the instructions on several sites, watched the video on you tube. Typically a Username/password is a pilot error problem, but I don't know what I am doing wrong.

    If you don't have the right server settings it might kick back a bad username / password error. (This was happening on my exchange server) Other then that I don't know what else to try. What settings are you using?
    Resistance is futile.

    Ah... then I might NOT be going crazy...

    I have been using imap.mail.yahoo.com

    and

    port: 143

    path prefix: None

    That seems to be the recommended config that I have found in multiple places.

    Any other ideas are welcome.

    correct, does it go to the next screen after this asking for your outbound settings?

    Nope, at this point it says, 'username password problems...'

    I have typed it in with the keyboard, the virtual keyboard, and then typed it in again on my pc and it always works on the pc, never on the Droid.

    Try this:

    Imap server - imap.mail.yahoo.com

    SMTP Server- smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com

    Brandon - that is the incoming server I am using and I never get far enough to enter the SMTP server...

    Any other ideas?

    Pretty frustrating, seems like it should be a pretty simple thing.

    very strange. try this:
    Delete any settings you have created, turn off your wifi, turn off and remove the battery, then turn back on and try again.

    Brandon - thanks, I'll give it a try....

    I also wondered if my inbox was too full, so moved ALL e-mail into a folder that was NOT my inbox.

    Sometimes, there is no 'simple' answer, but pulling battery, erasing settings, etc... may hit on one of the many possible causes.

    Thanks - I'll let you know how it goes.

    Just picked up the Droid today - torn between impressed with some apps and some impressive potential and frustration with some nonintuitive interfaces and some hinky implementations.

    I want to love it...

    I declared victory too early...

    After pulling the battery, it let me add the incoming server, checked/accepted it, but did not like the smtp server name suggested above.

    Closer...
