    Okay, I just recently got the Droid X, I previously had the Droid. When I set up my yahoo email on the Droid, I just googled how to do it and found a very helpful youtube video that gave me the specifics I needed.

    For the Droid X, no such luck. I have found multiple answers, and different info to enter into the imap and smtp settings. I have tried them all, but no luck yet.

    Can anyone out there give me SPECIFIC answers, on what to enter and check for EACH window. Or if you could send me a link or video.

    It might be something simple that I am missing, but I am just about ready to start thumping my head against the wall lol.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    First, Turn off wifi if it's on. Imap doesn't work with wifi.

    Under General Settings: Account name, Real name, and Email address are pretty self explanatory

    Incoming Server:
    Server: android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 993
    Username: your yahoo email address
    check both: Use secure connection and Verify Certificate

    Outgoing Server:
    SMTP server: android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 465
    Username: your yahoo email address
    Password: your yahoo email password
    check both: Use secure connection and Verify Certificate

    Other settings: set to the number of messages you want to sync

    That's it. Let me know if you have any problems.

    Oh, and there's also an app in the market if you prefer called "Yahoo! Mail for Android" by Yahoo! Inc. However, you can only set up one account so it doesn't work well for me as I have multiple Yahoo email accounts.
