    Exclamation Why does Ipod/Iphone work with Yahoo Mail and not the Droid???

    Hi guys, I have had this phone for about a month and I love the phone but my only gripe would be that I can't get it to sync with my yahoo mail!!! I can hook up my mail to my ipod touch and works well with my brothers Iphone but y can't it work with my droid?? I don't have the yahoo plus account if that helps at all.

    There has been a fix for Yahoo email if I recall. If not there are manual directions as how to activate your Yahoo mail account on your Droid.

    please use the search

    I found this on the Verizon web site and it works for me most of the time. Unfortunetly I have to reset the phone about once a day after I get a connection error.

    Go to manual setup > IMAP account and change to these settings....


    Imap server - imap.mail.yahoo.com

    (SMTP server will be on the next page)

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

    MAKE SURE YOU HAVE WIFI DISABLED

    It's been working on mine ever since I got the phone (day after release). But, I have noticed that I don't get update notifications if I have the "Awake Stay" app running. This is the app that negates the slide lock. It sounds like you're not setting up your account correctly:
    Incoming
    Username- everything before @yahoo.com (don't put the @yahoo.com part in)
    Password-
    IMAP server-imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port- 143
    Security- None

    Outgoing
    SMTP server- smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Port- 587
    Security- None
    Require sign in- Checked
    Username- everything before @yahoo.com (don't put the @yahoo.com part in)
    Password-

    thats it!

    tried it and still doesn't let me get out of the imap incoming setup, it still says username password incorrect but i am plugging in the correct username and password.

    This is happening to me too. I've had Yahoo sync'd since I got the phone on Dec 7. Yesterday I changed my password, around 11am, and set it up on the droid and everything was still working (had an email pop up at 530pm). I've gone through and reset everything but it still says my username and password are invalid.

    The only thing left for me to try is uninstalling/reinstalling the account.
