    Can you not configure yahoo mail on the native email client available on SGS-2.Everytime I try configuring it says wrong Id & pwd when there is nothing wrong with my Id and pwd.

    i just set it up on mine to see.
    for yahoo all you do is enter your email address and password, not your userid.
    what you may have to do is go into your yahoo email and check the settings, POP and forwarding>enable access yahoo mail via POP

    not sure if that last part will help but i think i had to do that for it to work on my previous android phone.

    Yes that's what I have been doing enter my entire email Id and password and it still won't accept it and give me the Same error message please enter your correct email Id and password. Are you sure you tried this on the email icon in your SGS-2 or did you download the yahoo email APP available in the Android Market.

    i done it in the standard email app on the phone.
    have you enabled POP in your yahoo settings? you have to do this from your computer
    i cant think of any other reason it isnt working

    Yes, I think now I got it, didn't know that I had to enable the Pop up settings from the Yahoo Mail account from a PC. Did that and is working now.
