    I am having trouble adding my personal email account. I go through all the steps, but then I get the "Warning: cannot connect to the mail server to verify your account information. Your server is not responding".

    The "manual" and I use that term loosely, states that if you get that error, you need to verify all the ettings wih your mail provider, including settings for the incoming server and to access their outgoing server from other networks. Not being a computer geek, I have nooo idea what that means or how to do it. I have tried changing all the possible options and I keep getting the same error. Can anybody help me.

    It's a google phone. Whenever possible you should run the mail through gmail or you more then likely will have issues.

    I have a sbcglobal.net email which a yahoo based email address. I have put in my email address and password in the Other(POP3/IMAP) option. Is that what you mean by the native email app?

    You will also need to put in your pop3 and smtp server addresses. If you don't know them, go into your computer and look at the account settings for your sbcglobal.net email account.

    Note that you will probably not be able to do more than receive email from this account. To send email usually requires that you be connected to their network.

    My hotmail works just fine with the Incredible, it's actually set up as my main email account.

    This is what I am having trouble finding. I don't mean to sound stupid, but where do I find the smtp server address? I have gone through my account settings (at least the ones I can find) and I am not finding it.

    In your Email account it may say incoming mail server (POP3) and outgoing mail server (smtp).

    One of the following should work for you.

    smtp.sbcglobal.net or smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com

    FYI - I had an issue (have an issue) with Yahoo accounts working when my Wifi is turned on (won't connect). I have to turn it off in order to get Yahoo to connect.

    I don't know if you solved your problem, but here is what I found to add my sbcglobal email to my HTC Incredible...

    Incoming mail server settings

    • POP server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
    • Use SSL
    • Port: 995
    Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings

    • SMTP server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    • Use SSL
    • Port: 465
    See if that helps. Verizon was no help in getting my new phone set up with our sbcglobal email.

    Hope it helps.

    Well, I just added the Yahoo Mail app on my Droid. Problem is, there is no option for me to log out of my Yahoo mail account so I can log into another Yahoo Mail account.

    Anyone know what I need to do?

    I would suggest to stop using yahoo at all but it may be a limitation to their app which wouldnt offer any solutions.
