    I just got an email from Verizon saying that with the 2.1 upgrade, I can get my Yahoo email now. Here is what the email says "Free Yahoo!® Mail is now supported—simply sign in with your Yahoo! email address and password." I cant seem to find an app for that, so I what am I suppose to sign into?

    OK, so I would think they mean in the native Email app. Open it up and while it is open touch the Add account button at the bottom. Hopefully it's an easier process than it was in 2.0.1. For that you had to do the following which I'll post just because some of the settings may help you out.

    How to set up Yahoo! IMAP email (non-root solution)

    This does not require Yahoo! Plus Mail, the paid service of Yahoo! mail.
    1. From the home screen, pull up the applications tab (at the bottom of the screen)
    2. Touch Email
    3. Touch Manual Setup at the bottom left corner
    - Select the IMAP option
    4. In the incoming server settings, enter the details as follows:
    Username: XXXX@yahoo.com (enter your complete yahoo email address)
    Password: enter your yahoo password
    IMAP Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 143
    Security Type: None
    IMAP Path Prefix: leave blank
    5. Touch next to continue to SMTP Server Settings and enter the details as follows:
    SMTP: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 587
    Security Type: None (Checkmark “required sign-in”)
    Username: XXXX@yahoo.com (enter your complete yahoo email address again)
    Password: enter your yahoo email password again
    6. Touch Next
    7. Fill out your personal information (Name etc.)
    (If you are having problems be sure that WiFi is OFF then try again)

    Yeah it's definitely a lot easier than that. I redid it the new way just to make sure it is right and it works the same if not better.
    You just open the email app hit the menu button, select accounts, then add new account and just type in your email address and password and it sets it up for you.

    Good to know! Obviously I don't have Yahoo email, but a lot of people ask, so now I know the answer. Thanks!

    every 5 minutes

    thanks for all the info.....I do have one question, is there anyway to have the yahoo mail push directly without the phone checking every 5 minutes, like it does with blackberry?

    While you have your email open, touch the Menu soft key (four lines at the bottom of your screen) and choose Account settings > Email check frequency > and then scroll UP to select Automatic (push).

    Rats! You're right. I have the option on two of my three email accounts - not on the Hotmail one. Sorry.

    Hmmm...nice unencrypted connection. Try this instead:-

    1. From the home screen, pull up the applications tab (at the bottom of the screen)
    2. Touch Email (I already have an account, so I would select hard key, then accounts, then hard key, add account)
    3. Touch Manual Setup at the bottom left corner
    - Select the IMAP option
    4. In the incoming server settings, enter the details as follows:
    Username: username to the left of the @ symbol
    Password: enter your yahoo password
    IMAP Server: imap-ssl.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 993
    Security Type: SSL (Accept all certificates)
    IMAP Path Prefix: leave blank
    5. Touch next to continue to SMTP Server Settings and enter the details as follows:
    SMTP: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 465
    Security Type: SSL
    Username: username to the left of the @ symbol
    Password: enter your yahoo email password again:-
    6. Touch Next
    7. Fill out your personal information (Name etc.)

    You should now have SSL encrypted end to end connections. This is how I setup mine in 2.01 and it still works for 2.1.

    YMMV

    (I already have an account, so I would select 2nd left hard key, then accounts, then 2nd left hard key, add account).

    Then you will see the manual on the bottom left.

    I have not found a way to have free Yahoo email pushed to the Droid. The setup for 2.1 on mine didn't prompt for server settings. I check for Yahoo mail every 15 minutes which is better than browsing for new mail.
