    My tethering seems to work fine using Easy Tether (I am rooted) - but the only websites I cannot access are my emails - yahoo.com and gmail.com.
    Everything else works fine - no matter how or where I try them, they will not work. All other websites load no problem. Just yahoo.com and gmail. Any ideas?

    Not sure why they won't work, but you know you can check them both from your phone, without tethering, right? ;)

    Hi - yes, I do check my basic emails using the phone - but for work purposes I need to have access to documents on my computer while doing emails, for attachments and things like that, so it's internet access on my computer that I need.

    Thread moved to the support section. Maybe Yahoo blocks full website access via mobile IP addresses? Try clearing the cache and cookies on your computer's web browser. Maybe that will help.

    EDIT: I think I found the issue. The Lite version of EasyTether blocks HTTPS, which GMail definitely uses, and probably Yahoo Mail does too. You would need the full version to remove that block. See this link for more information: http://www.appbrain.com/app/easytether-lite/com.mstream.easytether_beta .

    Read up on it as you had suggested - and you're absolutely right - without paying the fee, there's no access to gmail or internet banking. Cheap fee to pay if you are often without high speed internet, found the Easy Tether so easy to use and will keep this in mind for future.
    Appreciate the help both of you, thanks.

    I perfectly understand if you're happy with Easy Tether and want to support them. However, since you are rooted, Wireless Tether for Root Users (in the market) is free. I've been able to access secured (https) email accounts with it without issue. There is also Barnacle Wifi Tether, also free and requires root, if you want to turn your phone into a wireless hotspot. Just giving you some other options to try.
