    There's a ton of blog posts and message board postings on this. Yahoo's not compatible and you have to muck w/ the smtp settings in order to get it working. It still freaks out on me, so I just use the web-based interface for yahoo mail. (plus I can delete multiple emails at the same time w/ yahoo's web interface)

    I was able to get Yahoo Free Email working on the Moments "Email" App using the settings below. However I cannot take credit for the solution.


    Here is the original link.



    Yahoo Mail On The Motorola Droid | Android Phone Fans



    To set up Yahoo E-Mail on the Moment:

    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

    Hi all

    This is driving me NUTS!!!
    I have used the settings mentioned above and tried them again and again and again, really, about 30 times, and it keeps on telling me it cannot verify my username/password.

    Someone somewhere mentioned trying TLS security... but port 143 does not support that, so anyone got that to work, please tell which port.

    sigh.
    Ive just moved to Hero from Touch HD and I had IMAP on Yahoo mail no probs on Wm6.5

    Tx
    Mark.
