    Hi all,

    Have flashed CM6 RC1 for my EVO and loving it. So so fast.

    One problem is that when I go into the Email app and try to access my Yahoo.com email, it says that my username and password are not recognized. Never had this problem with v2.1.

    Does Froyo email require Yahoo Plus or something? Hope not. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to flash something else?

    How to set up Yahoo! IMAP email (non-root solution)

    This does not require Yahoo! Plus Mail, the paid service of Yahoo! mail.
    1. From the home screen, pull up the applications tab (at the bottom of the screen)
    2. Touch Email
    3. Touch Manual Setup at the bottom left corner
    - Select the IMAP option
    4. In the incoming server settings, enter the details as follows:
    Username: XXXX@yahoo.com (enter your complete yahoo email address)
    Password: enter your yahoo password
    IMAP Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 143
    Security Type: None
    IMAP Path Prefix: leave blank
    5. Touch next to continue to SMTP Server Settings and enter the details as follows:
    SMTP: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 587
    Security Type: None (Checkmark “required sign-in”)
    Username: XXXX@yahoo.com (enter your complete yahoo email address again)
    Password: enter your yahoo email password again
    6. Touch Next
    7. Fill out your personal information (Name etc.)
    (If you are having problems be sure that WiFi is OFF then try again)

    Wow, that worked. Coolness and thank you. Do you mind telling me how you know this? I've never seen this information before. Why was none of this required under 2.1?

    Thanks again!

    Hi Mitchellvii,

    I just came across the post on how to fix yahoo from another forum. I dont know what changed from 2.1 to 2.2. I am glad it worked for you!! I wonder if 2.1 had this information included in it or something.
