    1. give details. no one's a mind reader here.
    2. it's not supposed to. just one portrait and one landscape orientation. it's not an iPad )

    If it says the password is incorrect, than the password is probably incorrect. Normally people have problems login in because they don't have 2G/3G data configured. Have you tried WiFi?

    Hmm.. can you provide a link to that review?

    Setting up POP3 access on a Yahoo account, I believe you need to use your Yahoo ID (without the '@yahoo.com' bit) rather than your email address as the account name. I think, anyway. Could be wrong, I've not set one up in about ten years... (-:

    Have you used the email account outside of a web browser before? Ie, tried using it with Outlook Express on your PC? I'm just wondering if access needs enabling within the Yahoo account itself first.

    the orientation change in all directions i think is an eclair trick, or a strictly custom rom mod - i think gaosp does it (?)

    sorry to hear, but even more sorry to say that yahoo doesn't support access apart from the browser, unless you have yahoo Plus account, which would allow you to use their email and push then on galaxy. another thing is you can register you email on some other website (can't remember which) pay money to them and they will push your email through some kind of 3rd party software. but not sure if they can do it on galaxy. but google it and you'll find that not much can be done to access your yahoo mail from the phone, unless you get google Plus account

    of course you could just forward all your yahoo mails to your gmail and use that instead

    or you may just change your location settings in your yahoo mail settings to Asia, they have access to pop3 and smtp

    seriously?

    why would anyone use that kind of shitty service? :confused:

    just ditch the yahoo account and tell your contacts you're using gmail from now on

    What atbeyi says is true !! i was able to access pop3 and smtp by switching settings to Asia just a few days ago :)

    btw, yahoo service is pretty bad. So better to use gmail !!! :)

    Let's continue the discussion in the new thread you just started, this one is like 5 months old and not on topic.
