Unhappy yahoo mail on HTC desire

I have just got the HTC Desire today with an Orange UK contract. Unfortunately, I can't set up my yahoo mail account on it. It always say username/password incorrect. I have tried manual settings as well with no success. never had this problem with HTC Touch HD which was runnig on Windows mobile unlike Desire which has an Androd platform. Can anyone tell me how to set up yahoo mail on HTC Desire. Thanks.

I had this problem to start with. Try going onto your yahoo account on a PC, go to options (top right), more options, POP and forwarding (goes to mail classic for some reason), and choose the setting to allow this. Then go back to the phone and try again. That seemed to sort the problem. Hope this helps.

I have Yahoo working, but as above you must be a premium/plus account to make it work.

  1. Make sure Wi-Fi is turned off
  2. Press the E-Mail icon (the default Android E-Mail application)
  3. Enter your Yahoo/BT address and password
  4. Press "Manual Setup" in the lower left hand corner
  5. For "Incoming Server Settings" set the IMAP server to "imap.mobile.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 phone will check for Email, and choose default options
  9. Give the account a name and set your display name for outgoing messages
There is a known issue when sending mail of getting duplicates, and the above will only work using your network provider; not wi-fi.

Smile Yahoo mail on HTC Desire

Thanks everybody for the suggestions! After lot of trawling on the net and hours on the phone...I finally made yahoo mail work on Desire.
The following needs to be done:
As Specialjim had advised, I made sure that the POP forwarding was checked in my regular Yahoo account (Not yahoo Plus). This could only be done if you change the preferred location of your yahoo account to Asia! So I changed it to Asia from UK. Apparently POP forwarding is free only if the preferred location on Yahoo Account settings is Asia! Otherwise this is not possible!
Then I put my email address and password in the phone and it automatically set the account! All done! And yes it doesn't matter if the wifi is on or off....as long as you have internet access on the phone.
Cheers!

Hi all, I'm planning to get a HTC Desire soon. Currently I'm using a Nokia E71. I use Nokia email messaging application to access my Yahoo mail, which uses IMAP access. I was wondering if the Desire auto configs to IMAP settings for Yahoo mail or is it only POP? Let me know if anyone has been able to configure Yahoo IMAP (like in Nokia's built-in app) BTW, I'm also a Yahoo plus subscriber, if it helps.

Yes, I'm running Yahoo IMAP.

The default HTC mail app doesnt seem to have an option to access your custom folders though

Anyone know how to fix this and get your custom folders? I could do it on my old Samsung Omnia, so the Desire must be able to do it!

The only way I have found to view my custom folders is by viewing them in the yahoo app.

I had the same trouble initially.
I followed the standard setup but noticed the phone had my pop and smtp as btopenworld.com.
It should have read mail.btopenworld.com for both of these and then it worked a treat.
Hope that helps.

Yahoo app?

I thought they killed all the apps. Even the iphone is only a web shortcut.

Hi All

I managed to set my Yahoo up with just the user name and password.

It seems to be working 95% so far and the only issue I have is if I delete an email from my account whilst logged into my PC and then go to the phone I still see the email on my phone!

I have to manually remove the email from my phone as well (I didn't have to do this when I had an iPhone).

Anyone have the same problem as this or know of a fix?

Off topic slightly.

Does anyone know how to have a specific tone on the Desire for Yahoo mail?

I have a US based yahoo.com account. It won't change to any Asia setting. If I want to alter the PoP settings, it says I have to sign up for a premium paid for account. I don't want to do this. Is there still a method I can use to set up yahoo on my Desire, so I can send emails directly from my handset via my yahoo account?

For all those where yahoo is saying they need a premium/paid account. I never had that problem on my free UK account, the only thing it needed to set up was to be in classic mode which it prompted me to do.

thankssss. my yahoomail is working now. just activated the 'pop and forwarding' option in the yahoo mail options.
my network was already on yahoo asia. so dint have to do anything abt tht part. but I want to find out where to change this option. just to know.
after that, just put in my username and password in the 'create new mail account' in desire. rest got through itself.
are these settings already saved in desire for all major providers like yahoo?
one thing I cudnt find is an option to change mail notification alert sound but its there in the gmail app which came default with the desire.
nyways, it is retrieving yahoomail for me, most of the time.

Hey matey sorry to keep u waiting but i just fixed this with a customer instore.
if your setting up pop access to your email. put in the incoming server pop.mobile.mail.yahoo.com, then outgoing is the same as IMAP which is smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com... cuddles!!!

Same problem here. I got my account before they did .co.uk adresses so you can imagine I've got all sorts registered to it. In the end I just paid the fee. The email flowed onto my phone about 5 minutes later.
All very strange since it was working fine on my HTC Touch HD until about six weeks ago.

Hi guys,

For me, I managed to get it work by editing the imap and smtp to "imap.mail.yahoo.com" and "smtp.mail.yahoo.com" respectively without the mobile.

You guys may wana try this method.

Try the K-9 email app I've just set mine up using IMAP and all my custom folders are displayed. It also lets you assign a class rating to each folder so that you can opt to push or update periodically.

I'll be ditching the HTC app now.

That's right. My yahoo account is a free one and it works fine. It's a uk address so I'm not sure if that makes any difference.

IMAP is better than POP. It saves you having to delete emails twice.

I can understand with IMAP, (like I had gmail on my blackberry), if you delete it on the handset it will delete it on the web. I don't think it will work in reverse. It didn't with blackberry but that was "PUSH" through Blackberry Internet service anyway.

Once it is cached, it is cached until you delete it from the handset. Thats how it works in Outlook too.

I assume this will be the same.

Gmail on Android is a client to view your live mailbox. Did you have a yahoo specific appon teh iphone?

Went to Yahoo Options and found a notice for Android users.
It says to download an app from the Market called "Yahoo! Maii"

I shall be trying this myself tonight.
Hope this helps.

I just had this issue and it's very easy to sort out (asuming you've had the same trouble as me).

For Yahoo! UK, just log into yout email on a PC, go into 'Options' at the top right of the screen, then 'More Options'. On the next screen, click on 'POP and Forwarding' on the left-hand side and you get two options. The top one is 'Allow your Yahoo! mail to be POPed'.

Simply click the radio button next to this option and save the settings. Then go back into your Desire and try again. Should work fine!

Cant get it working anymore. Obviously they're blocking something.

Ahh, you're using POP3. I'm referring to the IMAP login. They've obv blocked IMAP access now they have their app

They haven't blocked the IMAP settings I'm using, but I think you already tried those (when I posted them on another thread) and they didn't work for you. Is it a .com or .co.uk address you have?

It's actually a btinternet email, which is powered by yahoo.

Have tried the yahoo id from my account aliases, and that wont work either.

Yes that's what I use. Pleased you got it sorted at last.

The HTC apps in general don't seem that great. I seem to be abandoning them all in favour of better alternatives.
