    Well heres an odd one for ya - I have been using ymail successfully with the stock email app for a long while now (at least 4 months) and have had no problem changing from one rom to another with no real issues with email (just re-entering settings as per instructions in another thread) however....

    Last night I decided to give the Baseband C_01.3E.03P update a go and after reactivation, restarting, etc -- BOOM -- now YMAIL says "Setup could not finish - Username or password incorrect"

    After several tries throughout the night and now this morning I took my wife's Droid without the Baseband C_01.3E.03P update and - voila it still works perfectly with my username and password.

    I have tried loading a couple different roms but to no avail. Thoughts?


    (Addition)

    After continuing my search I found some new settings that have worked successfully.
    I tried it just a few minutes ago with new instructions, and it worked for me. Choose IMAP as the protocol, not POP3, and then try to use these settings:

    Incoming settings
    Email address: yourname@yahoo.com
    Username: yourname@yahoo.com
    Password: ******
    IMAP server: android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Security type: SSL
    Server port: 993

    Click "Next" and it will bring you to the next page of settings:

    Outgoing server settings
    [X] Login required
    Username: yourname@yahoo.com
    Password: ******
    SMTP server: android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Security type: SSL
    Server port: 465

    Hope this helps!

    Using the stock email app on 2.1, yahoo uses the android imap servers with no special setup, but the yahoo/android imap servers do not work with wifi. You have to be on 3G.
