    Hey guys,

    I have a little droid/yahoo mail question. I bought my droid from verizon about a month ago and was able to set up my yahoo mail without a problem (thanks to this site) by buddy got his droid last week and we can't get yahoo to work for him. Have they changed something?

    thanks,

    port = 143
    Security type is none

    OUTGOING:
    smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    port = 587
    security type is none
    Require sign in is checked
    username = full yahoo email address

    Yahoo's never worked reliably for my fiancee. It works sometimes and not other times (and she never uses WiFi so that's not the issue).
