    Angry Yahoo mail email help please!!!!

    ok guys, so i just got my droid a few days ago and i come from a blackberry. i love the phone and it is something i want to stick with. i am very familiar with technology and i have followed the directions on how to set up an email account over and over. i have honestly tried this for two days in a room. in multiple locations with the wifi always off!!! i cannot get this darn thing to accept my information. i have followed the video tutorials, the directions on this forum, crackberry, and androidcentral as well!! nothing is working. i have read and seen in some places that you need yahoo mail plus and others that you do not need it. i finally tried a separate email account which is live/hotmail and that worked instantly!! my email is really important to me so i would greatly appreciate all of the help i can get. or some kind of solution to this problem. i have also heard that on the dec 11th upgrade will fix this issue. is this something i need to wait for or can i do it before than. please help a member out and help me find a solution to this problem that is making me pull my hair out!!!

    there have been a number of people very recently stating that yahoo will not accept their info. i will state however you DO NOT need yahoo mail plus to get this to work. I have my main email from yahoo set up on the droid and it works 100%. I just tried to add a secondary account i have on yahoo, and it worked fine also. Can you please tell me the EXACT settings you are trying to use.
    Resistance is futile.

    some people have mentioned a battery pull and it worked, that is a rarer case. The other thing is trying to download "touchdown" for a 5-day free trial.. mainly just to try to set up your yahoo account on there and seeing if it works.
