    Whenever I try to add my yahoo account to the "add accounts" menu or whatever, I get an error message. Somebody got a fix?

    Wait what? I'm sorry, I may just be a little dumb or something. But after clicking on "corporate" in the add accounts section, none of that shows up. Where can I find/do all of that?

    You have to also select SSL for security, it will automatically select the correct ports.

    You do not have to select ssl for security. If you do it like Droid-Xer says in his last post it works. At least it did for me. It may have selected SSL automatically for me but I did not manually do it. I entered Smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com and it worked. Thanks D-Xer for the suggestion.
