    I am trying to use the K9 application with Yahoomail on my Droid Incredible. Yahoomail does not work the way I like with the standard HTC email client. It does not save email to sent items when I reply something I really like and when I delete it does not put the items on the server into trash. I have a few questions about the K9 yahoomail setup with PUSH rather than Poll.

    1. Does Yahoomail on K9 support PUSH without polling? I want to save battery and avoid polling plus I simply like push better.
    2. If it does support PUSH for incoming what is the full setup and configuration to get this to work. I have tried it and it does not seem to download test email. But if I perform a Poll it does.

    I am using imap.mail.yahoo.com 143

    Thank you in advance for any advice.

    Hi Hugobarb:
    Did you get this resolved? I am going through this process now too and want to know if poll and push should both be enabled.

    Thanks

    I'd also like to know whether push or occasionally polling is better for battery life. I know push sucks way more power in the stock email app, but this one doesn't use active syncing so it should be better than polling, no?
