Thats what mine was doing also with the orginal post, but the one below worked for me. go to mail icon add account enter email address in email address filed (firstname.lastname@example.org) enter password at password field select MANUAL SETUP not next select imap username= email@example.com password = yourpassword imap server= imap.mail.yahoo.com port=143 security=none optional = blank select next you will then be prompted to sign in do so. will then be taken to the smptp settings which only prompts (going form memory) you for address which is smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com. leave the port as is. then select next. sign in. name your account and that's it.
