    The Yahoo! Mail app SUCKS...it always freezes and is VERY slow. I definitely recommend k9 mail as I was amazed by how much faster/more stable this app was compared to the Yahoo! mail app.

    I'm still having issues. I tried to do the whole thing in my gmail account. Didn't work. Tried K9. Didn't work. Does it matter if it's a ymail.com (another type of yahoo mail) account and not just your standard yahoo.com account?

    Standard Yahoo will not allow POP3 access Except over ATT (Edge or 3G) unless you pay for premium Yahoo. If you try to setup POP3 yahoo email over WiFi it won't work.

    YMAIL.COM POP3 Settings ?? - Yahoo! Answers

    Actually there is a thread with settings for using imap. That's what I use and it works great.
