Default Yahoo email in HTC

Hi
I am a newbie in this forum. I recently got a HTC magic, and was trying to get my yahoo mail into email application without success. It kept saying i typed in the wrong ID or password. It accepted hotmail and google mail though. Anyone managed to get yahoo mail into Email application? Please tell me how you did.

Hi,

I had the same problem, but it seemed to have something to do with the settings for my Yahoo account which I had for years. Despite looking into all the settings I couldnt sort it, so I eventually created a new account, and forwarded all my emails from the original account to the new one. The new one set up no problem. Hope this helps a little.

Yes, I have my Yahoo! Mail account set up on my HTC Magic.

Incoming settings
Protocol = POP
Username = your full yahoo email address
PW: Your password
POP Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
Security Type = None

Outgoing settings
Username = same as above
PW = same
SMTP server = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Security type = None
Server port = 587

NOTE: In order to get POP access to your Yahoo email in the Mail app on your phone, you must either be paying for their premium service, or you have to agree to receive newsletters from Yahoo `partners`to get it for free.

Hi leec983, thanks for suggestion. Is your new email yahoo? I opened another yahoo mail account and tried set up in HTC email application to no avail. It was not registering at all. Did you need to tweak the set up of your new yahoo mail?

Got my G2 last week, Set up Yahoo and worked fine until yesterday, the only annoying thing it wasn't filtering spam. But since yesterday nothing, it just.. stopped. Can still access it by signing in on the web based one though. oh well, might as well start using Gmail as my main account, I guess.

Thanks for your input. I still have trouble setting this up with my HTC magic. Is this because we are using different handsets? or live in different countries (i am in UK)? I don't know, but I still cannot have yahoo mail in android email. I can read mails from yahoo web page though. Did you just add new account in android Email app? Could you please tell me in steps how to get this done? Thanks.

Im in the Uk as well , I have a Hero (T-Mobile call it a G2). as I said I also cannot get Yahoo mail straight to the phone through the Mail widget, (although I used to be able to) and like you I now check my Y mail on the web page. This seems to be a common problem, it seem to have everything to do with Yahoo and not the networks or HTC. Having to check mail on the web page ain't necessarily a bad thing though, at least you have access to all your folders etc.
However, there is a way around it if you really need to get your mail through the mail widget. First of all set your Gmail account to fetch your Y mail. You can do this on your Gmail page, go to settings - Accounts and Import- Import mail and contacts. You can even set it to send mail from your Y account. Then on your phone (and here I'm guessing as I don't know how a Touch works!) tap on the mail widget, make sure you're on the first screen, the one that lists all the emails received: tap "more" and switch to Gmail as your default mail service. Bear in mind though that it takes a while for Gmail to fetch Y mail... so you won't get it as it arrives in your Y inbox. Oh, and you still won't get a notification!
As I said in my previous post, might as well switch to Gmail as your primary email address...
Hope it helps!

Hi Lefthand,
Many thanks for your reply. I got the impression Y mail just isn't compatible with HTC email widget somehow. I am happy with Y mail on the Yahoo browser, and it's too much hassle mixing two email accounts like Y and G. I will leave them alone for now. Don't mind not having notifications. Many thanks.

I've been getting my ymail fine on my hero on orange UK.

I have mail plus though.

Have you checked your pop access is checked in settings (on ymail)?

I am using the free yahoo mail just fine on the MyTouch with the default mail app.

I suggest using the IMAP protocol for this. Here are my settings:

Incoming
Protocol: IMAP
IMAP Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
Security: None
Server port: 143

Outgoing
Check Login required
SMTP Server: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
Server Port: 25


With these settings, I can delete email on my phone and it deletes immediately (w/o syncing) on the mail server and messages are marked read after synching.

That's correct.. I'm in the US. I just didn't see IMAP offered as a suggestion.

Thanks Travon and Trick.
I do not have Y mail plus. I am currently reading mails via Y web browser only.
Travon, I have tried entering all you said, but it didn't work.
Thank you for your advice all the same.

try setting your location to the US or asia, rather than UK.

Some countries allow pop free as standard, other places make you buy plus.

Hi Fiona I've sorted it too by changing my Yahoo account location to Yahoo Asia.
Here's how you do it. Nothing will change in the appearance or language of your account, I promise, but you WILL get your Y Mail delivered to your phone, notifications and all!

Access your Yahoo account on your PC.

In the top right hand corner, click "Options" then "Mail Options" from the drop-down menu.

From the left hand pane click "Accounts" then click on the "Add or edit an account" link.

You're now in "Mail Accounts". In the left hand pane click "Account information". You may be asked to sign in again.

You're now in "Account Information": scroll down to "Account Settings" and click "Set language, site and time zone".

In the next page select "Yahoo Asia" from the NEW SETTING drop down menu, and GMT UK in the TIME ZONE.

Click the "Finished" button (very important!)

That's it, it may take a little while to start with but eventually you'll get all your mail delivered to your phone as it comes in.

Good luck!

Dude, this works. Thanks!
I wonder why you need to set the time zone to UK, though. Strange.

Hi Lefthand
Thanks. Looks like it did work for some people.
I just tried. My account was changed to y asia and I tried again on HTC email. It still won't register me! -unable to connect server! So why is that? I tried manual setup with both pop and imap, both yaoo.com, pop.mail.yahoo.com as well as imap.mail.yahoo.com. Something isn't right with me.

You can set the time zone to your own region, the important thing is to set the server to Asia.

Fiona try deleting your Y account on your phone, (only on your phone, leave the actual Y account as it is, with the server set to Asia. then re-register from scratch using the phone's default settings.
I'm also beginning to wonder whether it may have something to do with the phone itself. Or perhaps the network? I'm on T-Mob. Have you been in touch with HTC themselves about this? Their CS is quite helpful. Go to HTC - Support and click Customer service. Worth a shot!

Hmm. Premature celebration. It stopped working. It just says "login failed" but I'm still getting notifications of new email.

Default no refresh

same problem here. Using HTC Hero from Sprint and yahoo! plus account (US). The emails are showing up normally. However, when I try to refresh I get the message "Login failed". Real weird, how can the emails show up when the phone automatically syncs and not when I try to refresh?

Default Mail for mobile

No need for yahoo mail plus.
If you go to 'options' in your yahoo email account you can select 'mail for mobile' from the menu on the left hand side. Yahoo will provide you with imap login setting for your phone. Though you will need to enter your mobile number, service provider and phone model.

All it did for me on the "mail for mobile" link is provide a place for your phone number. It sends a text with a link and opens a mobile yahoo interface in the browser. No imap settings.
I'm also using Yahoo Plus.

I'm trying to set up ymail with the moment and have tried all the suggestions in the thread. Went to my ymail account but didn't even have a mail for mobile option on the menu.

I was able to set up my ymail on the hero and had no issues at all but switched over to the moment because of the physical keyboard...

Yeah!! Finally got it to work... had to trick it by using a hotmail account and then was able to go back manually and set up the ymail as imap! What a happy moment!

Actually, it worked just fine with the Hero. It just doesn't work with the moment. Using impa will allow the moment to get it through the email app but not in html.

I finally broke down and imported it into my gmail.

Guys, go to Yahoo! Mail for Android on your computer, have them send link to your cell and download Yahoo app. It works perfect for me

hi guys, just got my first HTC Desire Z, im from a samsung with win mo 6.5 so having the email setup actually require me to do something other that email address and password was new to me. I did a quick look and came up with the simple solution.

when you log into yahoo.com log into your mail, in the classic mode there is an option tab on the right, it lets you chose colours and mail options.

In the mail options it allows you to select "POP and Forwarding" in this menu click on Allow your Yahoo! Mail to be POPed
When POPing my messages, dont POP spam, this changed the outcome instantly and my phone then logged on the very next attempt.

I also attempted the to convert the Imap settings from my winmo phone and this did not work, POP is the way to go, just make sure your accout is set up for it online.

Directly from Yahoo for mobile answers>>>
Check the official link >>
Yahoo! Mail for Android



IMAP is another way you can get Yahoo! Mail on your phone. Using IMAP you can download messages with your mobile client, so you can access your mail even when not connected to the mobile Internet.


How to set up Yahoo! Mail with your mobile client using IMAP
  • On your phone, press < Home >, then open the Email application.
  • On the 'Your accounts' page, select Next to get started with setup.
  • Enter your full Yahoo! address and password, then select Next.
  • On the next screen, you can give the account a nickname and choose the name to display on your outgoing messages. Tap Done.
  • If prompted, supply the following information:
  • Incoming Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
  • Outgoing Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Incoming Port - 993 (requires SSL)
  • Outgoing Port - 465 (requires SSL)
  • Username: full email address (bill@yahoo.com)
  • Password: is the password you login to Yahoo! with
hope that helps - it helped me to set up my Yahoo mail for Android HTC
