    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.
