    If you are having the notifications going crazy issue, you are not alone.

    Last night it was so bad my phone could not fully charge--I had vibrate on and it ate through the battery faster than it could charge.

    Any suggestions for a good mail app to use until they fix it? I am using a ROM that does not have a built-in email app.

    Does not seem to work any more. The options page is blank after I switched it to Asia. They must detect your location now and closed the loophole.


    I went ahead and reinstalled the generic AOSP email app. I had deleted it because I did not use it. It works well enough...but the yahoo dedicated app is very good (when it is works, lol)...better than the gmail app except for the goofy purple, lol.

    that sucks....i did it like 8 months ago so i guess they could have figured it all out. sorry i couldn't be of any more help.
    you can look into K9 mail, and maildroid. both are very similar and may work for what you need them for. also been a while since i have used them, and i dont even remember if they work with yahoo accounts.

    Issue seems to have been resolved.

    Mods...do your thing and close this baby.

    And here we go again. Now you get notifications, but no mail, and if you uninstall and re-install the app, you cannot access your account at all.

    I have the opposite problem...

    I am not getting any notifications at all when an email comes in.

    More flakiness today. Got a notification--email not there but it is in my inbox if I look in a PC browser.

    I wish they would get on the ball with this app and the service behind it. They break it every few weeks yet there are never any features added.

    maybe I'm behind the curve on this one... but now that you can set up yahoo (and att) email as imap, the stock mail app works far better than the yahoo app.
