    I'm not BigMerf, but I think I know the situation. Yahoo won't allow you to forward your any email unless you have Yahoo Mail Plus. The information for that is listed here

    Sadly without the payment of Yahoo Mail Plus you aren't able to forward any of your emails so you can't set up "Email" or "Work Email" on the Mytouch or any other Android phone. Hope that helps.

    Well, I stand corrected, and I would take that thanks back Sensesfail because I was showed up. BigMerf topped me, and you can add yahoo to your email. I haven't tried it, but I'm sure the video works, so have her load up her email and enjoy.

    here it is worded..

    To set up Yahoo E-Mail on an anDroid phone:


    1. Make sure Wi-Fi is turned off
    2. Press the E-Mail icon (the default Android E-Mail application)
    3. Enter your Yahoo E-Mail address and password
    4. Press “Manual Setup” in the lower left hand corner
    5. For “Incoming Server Settings” set the IMAP server to “imap.mail.yahoo.com” and the Port to 143
    6. For “Outgoing Server Settings” set the SMTP Server to “smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com” and the Port to 587
    7. Check “Require sign-in” and press Next
    8. Select how often your Droid will check for Email, and choose default options
    9. Give the account a name and set your display name for outgoing messages

    Gmail is a definite. But in order to have Yahoo Mail with POP3 you need to have the Yahoo Premium account, however, you can use regular yahoo mail with the IMAP account, thats all. No worries.
