    Hello I am new droid user and new to this forum.
    My first problem is - I cannot get my yahoo email to work on the phone. I also have a ymail email address and it will not work either. I get the message "cannot connect to the mail server to verify your account information. Your server is not responding."
    So I went into the verizon store and the guy said the Eris doesnt allow free email accounts???? I can't believe this is true, I only have free yahoo and ymail accounts. Is it possible to get these loaded on my Eris?

    My next question - I ended up creating a gmail account. If I can't load my yahoo accounts onto the phone, can I load 3 different gmail accounts onto the phone. Can someone explain this, if possible.

    Thanks in advance for you help and suggestions!!

    I'm having the same problem right now as well. I use to be able to connect to my yahoo mail just fine with the native email app. I had it set up on Imap. I go to check my mail today about a few minutes ago and I keep getting a "Incorrect username or password." I delete the account and try to reset it but I'm still running into the same issue and I can't connect to the yahoo mail server as well.

    My understanding is that support for multiple Gmail accounts will be available with 2.0.

    Yahoo Mail

    I still have Yahoo mail pushing to both my Moto Droid and my daughter's Droid Eris. I used the same settings for both - the ones that are posted in several places. Here are those settings again:

    Incoming Server Settings:
    UserName - your yahoo email account address
    Password - your yahoo account password
    IMAP server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port - 143
    Security type - none
    IMAP path prefix - (none)

    Outgoing Server Settings:
    SMTP server - smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Potr - 587
    Security type - none
    Require Sign in - "checked"

    If nothing else, you should be able to go to mail.yahoo.com to log and read your mail. At that point it's just another web site.

    Do you have WiFi turned on? IMAP for Yahoo does not work with WiFi on. It's a limitation of Yahoo. If you have Yahoo Plus you get POP3 access which will allow you to get Yahoo mail with or without WiFi on.

    There is some fix coming in 2.0.1 that is suppose to improve the Yahoo connectivity but we don't know the details.

    If it's not supported, then why have I been able to get my ymail account to work on my Droid since day 1? I don't have the OTA update either.

    Here's the link I found on these boards which helped me to set up my ymail account 1-2-3.

    I'm trying to add my hotmail acct, so I pressed add acct and selected corporate b/c that was the only option, and it said it can't connect to the server. Did I do something wrong?

    THANKS TatDroid! Got my Eris Friday night and couldn't get into my att.net e-mail. VZ rep told me last night I had to buy POP + because Google and Yahoo were not agreeing on terms. Your directions (and the video posted elsewhere on this forum) worked GREAT! Now to set up the other 3 ERIS' in the family.
