    Well if you are like me and you like using the stock Email app, but you noticed that on a Gingerbread Rom it won't connect......here's your solution.

    When you open the stock email app it will ask for your email address and password. Fill in both of these portions but instead of clicking on "Next" click to the left on "Manual Setup." 3 Options will pop up which I believe are

    POP
    IMAP
    EXCHANGE/OTHER

    Select "IMAP"

    Leave the username and password fields alone

    In the field "IMAP Server" type:
    imap.mail.yahoo.com

    Change the port to 993

    Change "Security Type" to:
    SSL (Accept All Certificates)

    Click "Next"

    On "SMTP Server" type:
    smtp.mail.yahoo.com

    Change port to 465

    Change "Security Type" to:
    SSL (Accept All Certificates)

    Click next and you're done.

    I know there are tons of other email apps out there that people like better and think are easier to setup.

    This post is ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE THE STOCK APP!

    Oh! Thanks for the solution provided. Recently, Yahoo entertains a new app Yahoo stakes its future on new ad-rich apps. Conjecture about Yahoo has been rife, especially since the most recent CEO was thrown out. Yahoo has since developed and declared several brand new applications that the company seems to be staking its future on. Well, I hope this would boom to app users.
