    For the Mail issue, try re-entering your username and password. Login failed is a message from the yahoo server actually saying that something is wrong with that information.

    As far as the game, press and hold on the icon from the home screen. When it vibrates drag it to the remove box. Then press and hold your finger in a blank area and select shortcut when the menu comes up. Pick the quest game from the list. Try the shortcut.

    If the shortcut you refer is not on the home screen but from the app menu, you'll probably need to remove and re-install the game to make it work. Hope this helps.

    If you use a replacement messaging program like Handcent you can set it to do so. You can download Handcent from the market.

    Mine did the same thing. (yahoo that is) You have to either turn the phone off and then back on or turn the internet off and then back on. Its crazy but it works.

    Areyou using or have your WiFi "on" when trying to access the Yahoo account? There is a known glitch which prevents this while using the POP settings. If you have a paid Yahoo account which uses IMAP then you don't have this problem. There are some posts here about getting around it.

    What I did was set up the account with WiFi off, change the settings to manual retrieval of mail. It should work, does for me. Check the forums here and see if you find anything on Mail/Yahoo, if not let us know, I will look then and re post it for you.

    Hope this helps!

    I'm having the same issue. I configured my email to use Yahoo and it's been fine. I haven't logged on for a few days. Now when I attempt to log in (no change in configuration), I get the same issue.

    I've also tried to log on to yahoo via the browser to the mobile.yahoo.com and I get the same problem when I attempt to log in.
