    Hey guys,

    I have a little droid/yahoo mail question. I bought my droid from verizon about a month ago and was able to set up my yahoo mail without a problem (thanks to this site) by buddy got his droid last week and we can't get yahoo to work for him. Have they changed something?

    thanks,

    Settings for yahoo (also works with rocketmail) are:

    INCOMING:

    username is your full Yahoo email address
    imap server is imap.mail.yahoo.com
    port = 143
    Security type is none

    OUTGOING:
    smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    port = 587
    security type is none
    Require sign in is checked
    username = full yahoo email address

    Yahoo's never worked reliably for my fiancee. It works sometimes and not other times (and she never uses WiFi so that's not the issue).
