    I updated my P500 to 2.3.3 V20d recently.

    I used the Email icon in the Menu to open Yahoo email, but there is no sin-out option, so every time I click the icon the email account will open automatically.

    Does anyone know how to sign-out the email account?

    Really no need to but you can go to settings and clear cookies. That will sign you out and require you to sign back in. I never sign out and my passwords are auto saved in my phone anyway. I ALWAYS do, however force close my browser after I am through. The app and account are garbage and through a shortcut method I do have that option. I just don’t use it.

    I went to setting and clear everything such as cookies, cache, password and history, and uncheck remember cookies,remember password.

    When I click the Email icon, the email account opens automatically again.

    Yahoo email app has been used before updating, still remember it also can't be sign-out.

    Doubt if it is a bug in software or a feature of android phone for easy access.

    Try this
    Goto settings > Accounts & Sync > Click the account u want to remove > Click Remove account..

    It definitely works for removing ur Gmail & FB account, dunno about Yahoo..

    Yahoo account does not show in Account & sync.

    I unchecked Auto sync and Background data, account still open automatically.

    I have same problem and can't sign out of Yahoo email so my emails stay open all the time. What do you mean by 'force stop'? This is my first 'Smart' phone and I am very slow in catching up.

    force stop is nothing but force closing the app..

    to force close app follow the below steps

    go to settings
    >applications
    >manage applications

    and find the yahoo mail app and select it ...then it will show options to force stop just select force stop and it wont sync or wont stay open then

    example--

    I tried the above for gmail but when I opened again I was still signed in.
    This is concerning if u let someone else use the tablet and they can read all your emails etc :(

    I tried the force stop, too, but the sign in page still has my user name and password already entered. When I delete both of those they reappear when I enter through the Yahoo mail app again, meaning anyone using my tablet can get directly into my email with one click. I deleted the app.
