    Is there / will there be a solution that works with WiFi? Kind of sucks to not get email when I'm utilizing WiFi.

    I've followed the instructions in the thread. Wi/Fi is OFF. All the fields, including username and password, are correct, but I keep getting an incorrect username or password error.

    Anyone know of any other tricks to try?

    I had Yahoo Mail Plus and still had problems. Mostly the "username and or password incorrect" error. So, I got fed up and canceled the Plus and switched my email to gmail. It was difficult choice, but it seems to be best. I have had issues with Yahoo in the past and this was the icing on the cake!

    Has anyone figured out how to stop all the emails sent from Yahoo through the phone from showing up in SENT folder 400 times? I have over 20K messages in my sent folder when I go to my account online. It's all the emails I sent from the droid duplicated 300 times.

    I used to spend hours going in my "sent mail" folder and deleting all the duplicates (leaving 1 copy of each). But I soon realized that they KEEP COMING BACK! Long after an email has been sent, duplicate copies continue to be generated. My "sent mail" folder now has over 100,000 messages in it. It's completely unusable - there is no way I could ever go to the folder and find a copy of a particular email that I sent to someone. I guess I might just as well delete the folder and not save "sent mail" any more. I wish there was a fix for this...

    re: yahoo

    Although in beta, you can download MailDroid which works for yahoo, ymail, and rocketmail (and some other mail providers).

    And by the way, changing your settings in Yahoo mail to NOT save a copy of a sent email into the "sent mail" folder does NOT work. Any email sent from the Droid will go into your sent mail folder whether you've checked that option or not. Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of copies of each sent item....

    And if you delete all the email from your sent mail folder they WILL return. The same OLD sent emails from weeks and months ago. Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of copies of each one...Like zombies - THEY CANNOT BE DESTROYED!!!

    Yahoo Mail set-up problem

    I set this up two days ago. It worked fine until this evening. I don't see that anything has changed. It tells me the username or password is wrong but they are both correct.

    Could it be because I also have a gmail account set up with different username and password?

    Any special step to get Y! mail working with the MailDroid app? I get an error message: "pop not allowed for this user." when attempting to set up my account.

    To set up Yahoo E-Mail on the Motorola Droid:

    1. Make sure Wi-Fi is turned off
    2. Press the E-Mail icon (the default Android E-Mail application)
    3. Enter your Yahoo E-Mail address and password (here you need to put in xxxxxx@yahoo.com)
    4. Press “Manual Setup” in the lower left hand corner
    5. For “Incoming Server Settings” set the IMAP server to “imap.mail.yahoo.com” and the Port to 143
    6. For “Outgoing Server Settings” set the SMTP Server to “smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com” and the Port to 587
    7. Check “Require sign-in” and press Next
    8. Select how often your Droid will check for Email, and choose default options
    9. Give the account a name and set your display name for outgoing messages

    I called VZW yesterday afternoon and all they had me do, which is typical of them, is to remove the battery. They had me leave it off for a minute or so and then when I turned it back on they asked me to dial *228, which from what I understand resets the cell tower that you are pulling from. I've been good to go since then. They told me that if I have any furter delays or issues to call the Motorola Department directly.
