    I set up my yahoo mail and I saw that there are options to select how often do I want my email pulled. I was just wondering if there is a way to get my yahoo email instantly (push email) so i can get the email on my phone the moment I receive it (just like gmail)

    How about changing the notification sound for yahoo account? It only uses the default notification ringtone. Were you guys able to select another tone for yahoo?

    I've only managed to get Gmail and Exchange via push and that was by using two apps. Seems we need HTC or Google to update their mail apps to handle different sources. Does Yahoo even do push or do you still need to poll intermittently?

    Google to update their mail apps to be more Yahoo-friendly?? Google's Android OS...Google's email is GMAIL...so I jussssssst don't think that Google is in all that much hurry to "help out" Yahoo on the phone....though I'd like it too!!

    Don't think push Yahoo mail is available on Android phones, only Blackberries and iOS devices. for instant/push email, you need IMAP Idle access, which I believe is something that you might have to pay for from Yahoo.

    I see that these posts are old now, but I have some info on this.
    Basically, the HTC Mail that comes with the phone (EVO, in my case) can handle yahoo just fine. In fact, I DID NOT have to enter any extra "set up" info beyond my id and password. I thought I was going to have to know the various mapping info but NOT with the yahoo account.
    You can set it to handle info in many different ways including a UNIQUE Notification SOUND for that e-mail as opposed to the gmail app notification sound for that account.
    The mails do download to your memory, so be careful if you run low when it comes to how many days are on the phone.
    I find the HTC Mail app FASTER than the Yahoo Mail app. I actually found the yahoo mobile web page faster than the app and had been looking at mail that way.
    What I don't find so far is easy manipulation of folders with the HTC Mail and yahoo account.
    Using HTC Mail Widgets also can be set for different accounts including any exchange accounts and thus show different "unread" numbers on them along with the name of the account.

    I hope you find this helpful.
