    Yes, I've done a search, about 4 hours worth but still need help or confirmation.

    Hello,

    As you can see, I am new here...very new...but I am not new to the Android OS.

    I have an Iconia tablet which is great for when I travel, it is like a laptop minus the
    bulk and weight.

    I have been an Apple iPhone user since the days of the 3G and still have my iPhone 4
    and 4S. I'll preface my query by stating that neither of my iPhones are exhibiting the
    symptom my new Motorola Droid Razr M is. I am not able to get Yahoo! email on the
    phone either using the native email app or with K9. I've tried both the POP and IMAP
    settings:

    Incoming
    Username- everything before @yahoo.com & I've tried with the @yahoo.com part
    Password- verified via web login
    IMAP server-imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port- 143/110/995
    Security- None/SSL/TLS


    Incoming
    Username- everything before @yahoo.com & I've tried with the @yahoo.com part
    Password- verified via web login
    POP3 server-pop.att.yahoo.com
    Port- 110/995/465/143
    Security- None/SSL/TLS

    I am not listing the outgoing server details because in neither the native email app
    or in K9 am I amble to progress past the incoming server details.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am not strained with the choice of keeping
    this phone or returning it to Costco.

    David


    Corrected typo!

    Ok, here is what I have both in my enhanced email app on my tablet and my aqua mail on my Razr M (so should be the same in stock and k9)

    Choose Imap instead of pop3 as the type of email.
    Incoming:
    Server- android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port - 993
    Security type - SSL

    Outgoing:
    Server - android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Port - 465
    Security type - SSL

    Thank you for the reply...I tried the settings you suggested but alas, I still receive
    the following error message: "Couldn't finish username or password incorrect".

    Do you add/change the Authentication Method or IMAP path prefix?

    Those are the only other fields in the present screen that I can edit.

    Those are definitely the settings I have. Did you set up using manual set up or automatic. Try the opposite of what you used setting up.

    Also, make sure you delete the Yahoo account from the app and add the Yahoo from scratch.

    Was there a reason you did a manual setup, just tried the automatic and it worked fine. Stupid question, do you have an @ymail.com or @yahoo.com address?

    I have tried both auto (using the Yahoo! icon within the settings>add account) and manual. Manual is the only way I can edit the settings as auto never get's me to
    a point where I can do this. I have never downloaded or tried the Yahoo! app. I have three Yahoo! accounts and 4 non Yahoo! accounts so having them integrated
    into a single app for checking is crucial.

    I have not tried the Yahoo! app. The remainder of your comment is not constructive for my issue as it implies I should accept mediocrity. For all of it's Nazi Tunes shortcomings
    I was able to set up email on the iPhone in minutes. Not this 6 hours and counting I'm experiencing now.

    Automatic did not work for my Yahoo! based accounts. In fact, it did not work for my Hotmail or AOL based accounts either. My Yahoo! accounts use the @yahoo.com
    address.

    Zenica, make sure you have backup assistant plus set to not sync. I am wondering if that is interfering. Last year, when I got my Razr Maxx I had the same problem and when I called Verizon for help, it ended up being back up assistant plus (even though I have never used that Verizon service).

    I checked the Sync settings and if I was in the correct location, then I can not disable the Sync, only change the time at which it will occur.
    Like the Apple iCloud, I won't ever use this feature.

    On a side note, when sending a picture in an email, having opened the email client by way of the picture send option, is it normal that only
    the FROM field has the indicator in the bottom right allowing me to select which account? The TO field has no such indicator allowing me to
    access the contact list forcing me to manually type the email address.

    I agree about never using the feature. It is invasive that it is thrown at us. I am wondering if it needs to be disabled in setup because I don't have the option to sync. I will explore further and see what I discover.

    The selecting from which account is only so you can choose which email address you would like to use. In the TO field, if you start to type the recipient's contact name, it should give you a drop down of possible contacts.
