    I got Verizon & Gmail setup no problem. But I get a "pin expired" warning when I try to setup Yahoo.
    Anybody seen this? Anyone gotta work around?
    Thanks for the help.

    Use the yahoo mail app from the play store, just download, open and sign in. I've been using it a couple years since my OG Dinc, it has more features than the stock mail app.

    I had trouble inputting passwords the first few days. After a few days of trying it worked. In one instance, I was just trying the wrong password!

    I never really like the Yahoo app in the market personally.

    I always just use the HTC stock app....

    I remember you used to have to change pop and server settings to get yahoo to work right on our HTC's but I don't think I had to do that this time. It should just work...

    When you go to add an email account are you using the 'pop/imap' account or are you clicking the preconfigured yahoo icon ????

    It works way better (IMO) if you add it as a Pop3/imap account

    This might be a yahoo problem really. I've been trying to set up my wife's account on her Note 2 and it won't work either.

    Is anybody else not receiving notifications after the latest update? It was ok after the major overhaul but after getting the minor update here a couple days ago i'm no longer getting notifications.

    I had problems with yahoo mail on both my my wife's Note 2 and my DNA. I went ahead and installed the yahoo app on both phones. Eventually, yahoo started working in the stock email on my DNA, so I deleted the yahoo app and have been using the stock ever since. It may be a Jellybean issue or it could be something to do with Yahoo in general. They've been making changes to their services lately.

    Just this morning i started getting email notifications after about 4 days,but they where for emails i already deleted, so i would say this is a yahoo issue.
