Use Manual set up for Yahoo email
I got yahoo mail to work on the captivate via the stock mail icon.
I use manual setup button and choose pop3.
Incoming Mail (POP3) Server
: pop3.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 995
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server
: smtp.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 465
, use authentication)
Account Name/Login Name
: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the “@yahoo.com”)
- Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)
- Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)
- Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
- Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)
the one problem or caution-- using it this way has not carried over any custom folders in yahoo mail.
so if you are in the habit of putting your mail in a folder, you will have to wait until you get to your computer.
Anyone know if there is a way to customize the 4 icons on the bottom?
and... moving contacts from an iPhone is a big time consuming pain
