    what a nightmare trying to setup yahoo email

    Ok I have figured it out. Now I am based in Canada and have a yahoo.ca email though this should work for any yahoo account

    1. Startup htc desire
    2. hit mail, then POP
    3. Add email and password ( make sure wifi is on ) and hit next ( dont do manual )
    4. Your setting up a POP email, so in the incoming set it to

    Incoming mail server settings

    * POP server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
    * Use SSL
    * Port: 995

    5. Hit next to do outgoing

    Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings

    * SMTP server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    * Use SSL
    * Port: 465

    6. add your name and finish

    Be sure to type it as yahoo.com in the incoming and outgoing as shown above even though your email is whatever@yahoo.ca it still needs yahoo.com

    Mine worked and pulled in... All without a PLUS account!

    Why not just use the Yahoo app?

    +1 for that also. The Yahoo app works perfectly for me.

    Because its another app when you already have a mail one that can handle multiple email accounts. Saves on space to just use what the htc desire came with
