    I got stock 2.1 automatically set up as follows after entering Yahoo ID and password:

    incoming:
    android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port 993
    SSL
    Optional - Imap path pref

    outgoing:
    SMTP Server
    android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    port 465

    Make sure notification is on. I set my frequency to 15 minutes (free Yahoo email can't be pushed). Cycle power. Doesn't play nice with WiFi, so disable.

    I have the same settings working on mine... but it often has either a connection problem or a password issue which last for a few hours. I tried changing the setting to various things I read on the web but all I can do is wait it out - eventually it corrects inself. Seems like some type of incompatibility... or Google trying to convince me to dump Yahoomail and move to Gmail

    Yes, the free yahoo mail works. I have four different account for personal and business and they all work and I get notified when new emails come in. The only issue I have had is making sure my Wi-Fi is not enabled if I want my Yahoo accounts to work.

    I go into each individual email account settings and make sure that edmail notifications are checked for each account that I want to be notified for. Then make sure that your email check frequency is not checked for 'never'. (I made that mistake)

    i don't have it set for 'never'. When I first got my phone that is what it was set at and I did not know why my email was not working. Now I have it set for 30 minutes and it works great.

    It's always worked pretty well for me set for 15 minutes. maybe the occasional gap where it misses notifying me but it usually works the next time around.

    My question is if its still having the "sent" mail issue. where it repeatedly fills up your sent mail folder with copies of the emails sent from the Droid? it wont send repeatedly to the person you're sending to but I occasionally have to go into my sent folder to find a specific email and Im not a fan of sifting through literally tens of thousands of copies of emails to find just one. it was so bad that I havent actually sent an email from the Droid in 5 months.

    Anyone know if this is solved yet?

    Ok, so unless I am slow and/or blind, I can't find the option to add a new email account or whatever. I am running Smoke Glass ROM, I don't know if this helps or not.
