    So, I usually do most of my phone-based intel gathering over at sprintusers, but my buddy Mario who got his Hero weeks after I did has already gotten his to do a bunch of stuff that I haven't been able to do.

    Namely, to get Yahoo mail to work well with the Mail app on the Hero.

    So I'm here seeking an imap connection to my yahoo email and to share any insights I get as well.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for all the well wishes!
    Bigdroid: Wow. I had set this up before but it stopped working on me and I switched to pop. Pop was awful. The headers would load but click on a message and you'd read it next week. I hunted around these forums and realized that you just have to make sure not to accidentally check with WiFi on, or else you have to do a soft reset to bring back fcn. Now I'm back in business! Thanks!
