    Found this phandroid video on youtube. Very helpful - works great! Only problem is that you can't access Yahoo mail with Wi-Fi enabled. You literally have to turn wi-fi off to set it up, and to access/use Yahoo email?! Any fix for this?

    YouTube - Motorola Droid: How To Setup Yahoo Email

    Edit: Just to clarify, it seems to work equally well on the Incredible, which is why I posted it here!

    this is why i ditched yahoo about 5 years ago for Gmail.

    I kept my yahoo acct around just incase, but i only go to yahoo only a couple times a year now.

    Plus you have a google phone now.. another good reason to ditch yahoo !

    I tried the Eris out first... Yahoo worked fine with wifi but like has been said now with the Incredible Yahoo mail will not function on wifi, only network connection. Something to do with 2.1 OS? Is the Motorola Droid the same?

    Yeah, I learned about he WiFi thing Tuesday. I set it up then it stopped working. I thought my email had been hacked or something.

    On my Incredible it's set up on IMAP.

    I don't use WiFi much so it shouldn't be a problem.
