    Plz Help! My Yahoo! email accounts stopped syncing again after the recent 2.3.3? Android update. Deleting, rebooting, and adding back accounts helped when I had previous mail syncing issues.
    The Yahoo! icon setup in accounts can't contact Yahoo's server when the account is being established. I also tried the generic 'email' account setup with the following:
    Incoming IMAP Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com port 993
    Outgoing SMTP Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com port 465
    Note: These are based on Yahoo! suggestions... I tried some older port
    numbers I Googled... none worked.

    I can't get the generic email or Yahoo! email accounts to sync. I don't want to use Yahoo's "Mail for Android"(c) app, or worse access email via browser. Any suggestions? Thx!

    Mine works just fine. Have you checked your name and password settings?

    Mine does that every now and then. No rhyme or reason. If I reboot my phone it seems to make the connection(most of the time)

    Don't upgrade your account to the new PC split window interface. If you have, open your account on a PC, choose Options and choose revert to classic mode. Had the same thing happen to me two months ago and the PC upgrade was the culprit.
