    I am having samsung galaxy mobile. I have successfully configured my gmail, but when I trying to configure my yahoo email id as the second email account by giving all the correct settings i.e, by doign the manual settings and giving all correct settings in the incoming server it says user id and password differs, but this is not correct as i am accessing my mail by giving same user id and password, and further earlier i had configure the yahoo mail on the phone and i removed the account and this happening when i am again trying configure the yahoo mail.

    Here is the solution if its yahoo.com.au

    1. Log into your yahoo mail and click on "options" on the far right area of your screen
    2. Select "More Options..."
    3. Click on "Pop and Forwarding" on the left menu
    4. Ensure "Allow your Yahoo Mail to be POPed" is selected.

    Go to Email in your phone, type in your username and password, go to manual setup and type:

    Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com.au
    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com.au (use authentication, optionally use port 587)
    Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")
    Email Address: Your Yahoo! Mail address
    Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password

    Hope that works

    Another option is to download the Yahoom Mail for Android app. I've had it for about a week now and it works well. The only drawback is that I can't see how to delete multimple emails at once.

    Hi there,

    I trid what you suggested, but still does not work. I get this error message.

    ID or password is incorrect ( 530 access denied: need SMTP privileges to access this server).

    My ID and password are correct, did not change them.
