Android Question

Sprint Samsung s3 updated. I had a problem with my anti-theft device (Kaspersky) and had to clear my phone. When putting info for my yahoo email I now have a message, Authentication failed. I have tried everything and including info on this site and no go. Please help!

Have you put in the correct authentication type and encoding? Or are you depending on the phone to set everything up when you tell it "yahoo"?

Go to Yahoo's site, look up their SMTP and IMAP settings and manually make sure that these are correct in your phone. (As well of course as your login and password.)
