Whenever I try to add my yahoo account to the "add accounts" menu or whatever, I get an error message. Somebody got a fix?
 
Manual set upis reqiured.

imap
in the incoming its:

imap.mail.yahoo.com

then in outgoing its:

smtp.mail.mobile.yahoo.com
 
Wait what? I'm sorry, I may just be a little dumb or something. But after clicking on "corporate" in the add accounts section, none of that shows up. Where can I find/do all of that?
 
It says it can't connect to the outgoing server.
 
You have to also select SSL for security, it will automatically select the correct ports.
 
You do not have to select ssl for security. If you do it like Droid-Xer says in his last post it works. At least it did for me. It may have selected SSL automatically for me but I did not manually do it. I entered Smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com and it worked. Thanks D-Xer for the suggestion.
 
Thanks a ton guys! Worked like a charm.
