    Will you be notified "instantly" or does it take a few minutes? I'm upgrading from a BB curve where I would be notified right away so I'm just wondering if the droid is the same. Thanks!

    There are lots of threads on yahoo mail so a search would be a good idea. The quick answer is that a lot of people can't get yahoo to work at all, that yahoo plus (paid) does seem to work AFIK. Free yahoo does work for me and I get new mail notifications within a few minutes of receiving new mail.

    Yahoo! Mail is not "Pushed" but in fact "pulled" so you will not get "instant" notification of new e-mails the way you would on an Exchange Server or even Gmail.

    you can have your mail client check every 5 minutes (at least with IMAP, I do not have POP).

    This needs emphasis. Search the existing threads if you count on Yahoo mail.
