    I have Yahoo Small Business Email Account.
    The app that comes with the Droid is too basic. Looking for a email app that can:

    Sync email, both inbox and outbox, with server.
    Sync my contacts.
    Has a search function
    Doesn't crash every 5 minutes

    Anyone ?

    Non pop yahoo small business email syncing solution - no searching feature though

    Ok all, I researched all over the internet, called Yahoo, etc. etc. but I could not find a solution to syncing my yahoo small business account on my droid. I troubleshooted for a while and finally found a solution that allows you to:

    1 - SYNC your Yahoo email (and not pop it)
    2 - SYNC your EMAIL FOLDERS so that you can access them and use them on your phone (This was VITAL for me - couldn't use the phone otherwise).

    Since I never found this solution but finally figured it out my wife insisted I share it to help others.

    Here are the steps:

    1 - Go to SETTINGS on your phone and select ACCOUNTS
    2 - select ADD ACCOUNT
    3 - select EMAIL ACCOUNTS
    4 - select OTHER (not yahoo!)
    5 - Enter your your email address**
    ** I have 2 email accounts - (myname)@(mybusiness).com & (sales)@(mybusiness).com Because of this I used the account that captures both of them; that way they are all in one email account. I believe anyone that has yahoo small business email can use the same; it is webmaster@(yourbusinessemail.com)
    6 - Before hitting next UNSELECT the AUTOMATICALLY CONFIGURE ACCOUNT box

    7 - For GENERAL SETTINGS name them whatever you want, keeping the email the same (webmaster@yourbusinessemail.com) then click OK

    8 - Select INCOMING SERVER
    select IMAP MAIL SERVER
    in the "Server:" section type: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    in the "Username:" section type your email: webmaster@(yourbusinessemail.com)
    select ADVANCED SETTINGS
    select the USE SECURE CONNECTION box (the port should be 993).
    click OK
    select VERIFY SERVER (it should verify "Success!")
    click OK

    9 - Select OUTGOING SERVER
    in the "SMTP server" section type: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    in the "Username:" section type the USERNAME that you enter to access your email from Yahoo's log-in page
    in the "Password:" section type the PASSWORD that you enter to log-in to your email account
    select ADVANCED SETTINGS
    select the USE SECURE CONNECTION box (the port should be 465)
    click OK
    select VERIFY SERVER (it should verify "Success!")
    click OK

    10 - Click OK

    THAT'S IT! This syncs to my business email accounts. If I move something to a folder from my computer or phone it changes it on my phone and computer email. If I delete it, it deletes it on my phone and computer email. It takes a little while (10 minutes or so) for the syncing to take place so just be patient.

    I actually own a furniture store and am not a computer guy (just a good troubleshooter I guess). If this works for you, GREAT! Feel free to like my company on Facebook as a thank you. Our company is Rustic Log Furniture of Utah, inc. (Rusitic Log Furniture of Utah, Inc. - FURNITURE)
