    My yahoo.com email setup didn't work until I added ".mobile." to the SMTP server name in the IMAP settings (under Manual Setup). Now, it works like a charm. Have it set to pull mail every 15 minutes, too. Very cool!

    Yahoo does not offer it. It is not something that the phone does. The server has to do it.

    One of the reasons that Yahoo mail doesn't work on WiFi:

    Many ISP refuse to allow SMTP (port 25) connections for out-bound e-mail unless it goes through their SMTP servers. When you are connected via WiFi you are using ISP's Network and therefore follow their rules.

    I'm still unable to connect to server. I'm with att. How do I know what att's settings are? I put in all the yahoo stuff but changed yahoo to att. It still says unable to connect. My gmail is fine. I'm using manual also.

    I have yahoo working without a paid account. However, for some reason when the email I send gets to the person the words are all jumbled and make no since at all. Very weird.

    I was having issues with my access to yahoo mail being available for a while and then it would give me the "username or password incorrect" notice. Hours later it would be available again. Very frustrating. However, following these instructions and the ones in the now closed thread with a youtube video (which I think needs to be stickied or archived someplace on the forum....moderators? :)) I deleted my old yahoo account off my phone and re-set it up and it works great. As stated a few times the key is to turn off wi-fi. This however brings up my question which is now that it's set up do I have to just avoid wi-fi all together for fear of this happening again? Or is it just during set up.

    Thanks again to all for the great info and insight from the people on this sight. Its been VERY helpful and I absolutly LOVE this phone!

    I have the pay service and I still get the Invalid User Name and Password when I know it's correct. Like some of you said, it works sporadically. It is really irritating.

    My Yahoo account was working sporadically and when I called tech support they had me delete it. Now, I can't get it to set back up (imap) even with WiFi off. Am I ever going to be able to set it back up again?
