    My experience has been much different as I upgraded to 2.0.1 last week and I've been getting my Ymails all day...Dunno what the difference is, but it's true.

    So for those of you running Yahoo mail on the droid (I am running Yahoo Mail Plus). Have actually checked your Trash folder on your droid on your yahoo mail account? I found out today that even thought I am on Yahoo Mail Plus, when I delete a message from my Yahoo mail on the droid, it just goes into the trash folder for yahoo mail plus and never empties! Anyone else seeing this?

    I have 2.0.1 and yahoo PULL mail works fine. The only push option is gmail, and gmail is a better mail option than yahoo. I use both, check that, I maintain a yahoo account and use the gmail account.

    I have the free Ymail and it does also does this, it really doesn't bother me. I had a possible keylogger on my home computer and a lot of my website logins are linked to Ymail. I've been changing passwords at work but can't access Ymail from work, so the droid's been great for verifying updates (until it stopped working sometime last night).

    Yahoo mail and WiFi do not seem to go together. Odd.

    However, if you do toggle the wifi, you need to kill the e-mail app and then turn off WiFi and then go back in to the app and Yahoo mail WILL work.

    Use these settings and you should be OK...


    * In the Incoming Mail (POP3 or IMAP) Server box, enter pop.att.yahoo.com.
    * In the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box, enter smtp.att.yahoo.com.

    * The Incoming mail (POP3) should be port 995 and SSL is checked.
    * The Outgoing mail (SMTP) should be port 465 and SSL is checked.


    If you toggle WiFi on or off, you need to kill the e-mail app and start it again.


    I've verified that this works on my Droid with the current update applied.

    The first post under your complaint is all you need to read. Dont be frustrated with the Droid. Thats yahoo's fault for making it a paid service. Purchase it and it'll work fine. Again, thats not on the droid. Blame yahoo.
