    First, do not use the Gmail app, use the "Mail" or "Email" app. Then, use the following steps to access your free yahoo mail from 2.1:

    How to set up Yahoo! IMAP email:

    –This does not require Yahoo! Plus Mail, the paid service of Yahoo! mail.
    1. From the home screen, touch 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

    Email is an app that comes pre-installed on the droid and is in the App Drawer (in alphabetical order, under "E")
