Some users have mentioned that sbcglobal.net accounts work with imap. (My lovely wife is among them.) As far as I can tell, the sbcglobal accounts, though served by yahoo, have all the bells and whistles of a yahoo plus account. So it stands to reason they would have more features and capabilities than free yahoo accounts -- including imap access.
For what it's worth...
after i type in the incoming server settings, i get a message:
SETUP COULD NOT FINISH
username or password incorrect
i know they are right. i triple checked them. is there any other reason this could be happening?
Sometimes I randomly get email from my Bulk/Junk folder delivered to my Yahoo inbox on my Droid. How do I stop this annoying thing from happening?? I searched and couldn't find anything on it. Thanks.
it yahoo has really marked it as junk, it should not be possible for any POP3 service to pick up the message.

anyway, you can re-junk it in google. in the gmail app, just select report spam. the same can be done on gmail.com
thanks for the reply. I didn't think about it, but I think you're right about the timing thing. The SPAM messages are not actually in my online Inbox, so this leads me to believe the situation you described above must be happening. The good news is that only a very few (no more than 10 the most) from the hundreds of spam emails I get come thru and I can delete them manually. Something I'm willing to live with for now until we get a dedicated YAHOO and HOTMAIL app :)

Also, you can get imap to work. Follow the link...
This worked for me...quick and easy!
After looking it looks to be the same as the video clip above...
To set up Yahoo E-Mail on the Motorola Droid:

2a. Press menu then add account
3. Enter your Yahoo E-Mail address and password
4. Press “Manual Setup” in the lower left hand corner
4a. Press IMAP
5. For “Incoming Server Settings” set the IMAP server to “imap.mail.yahoo.com” and the Port to 143
6. For “Outgoing Server Settings” set the SMTP Server to “smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com” and the Port to 587
7. Check “Require sign-in” and press Next
8. Select how often your Droid will check for Email, and choose default options
9. Give the account a name and set your display name for outgoing messages
Now you get free Yahoo mail on your Droid
The POP3 and switching to Asia no longer works folks.
