    Hi, I am on my 4th phone in about 10 Days from VzW, now a re-furbed Incredible 2. Issue is I am receiving Yahoo emails, however the ones where body is HTML are blank. So, I receive the header/subject and a blank email. I know from web log-in the content is there, but not visible on my phone. I believe the December 14 update broke this. Is this a known issue? VzW suggests the Yahoo market app, which is reviewed as worthless. Thoughts? News? Suggestions?

    I use the Yahoo Mail app everyday. It works for me. Most of the complaints seem to be about not being able to delete multiple emails at once. Tapping the Edit button gives you check boxes to do just that. The complainers need to RTFM.

    You could try K9. I get HTML emails in my yahoo account and in K9 all I have to do is press the "Show Images" button for the full email to show. I don't use the native email for Yahoo app so I can't help there.

    Mine has the exact same problem after the 2.3.5 update that just rolled out. I can be viewing the message and whamo...the message content disappears.

    2.3.5 update? :thinking: Did I miss something? I don't recall the Incredible 2 ever getting 2.3.5 except by rooting.

    Mine does the same. I'm rooted and using 2.3.3 . Html shows for hotmail and gmail but not yahoo. I got the market app and its not the best but at least i can see my damn emails ;)

    the provided mail does not work fully with yahoo. I went to yahoo on the browser and down loaded their app and it works fine. downside is it adds another mail icon to your desktop.

    I think I figured this out. You know how widgets have to be in internal memory or they disappear.
    I was going through the stock email settings for yahoo and found under general settings/attachment cache was set to external. I changed it to internal and no more email disappearing before my eyes.

    Unfortunately this fix did not work for me. In the Android Mail Client, I changed Attachment Cache to internal storage, but the contents of most emails disappear permanently after viewing them for about 4 seconds. If you close the email and return, the header is there, but the body is blank. I hate having to use a separate interface for one of my accounts, but I think Yahoo is doing this on purpose. It really stinks b/c the Yahoo app doesn't allow you to use two different ID's on the same account, like you can on the desktop.

    I use the yahoo app as well and I have 4 yahoo accounts setup.
    you have an accounts button top left, then you go to a different screen and over on the right there is a "manage" putton. By pressing it you can add and remove accounts.
    so thats the official yahoo mail app ver 1.3.8

    Thanks for your help. I know how to use the Yahoo Mail app, however it fails to allow you to access the additional alias for the same address that the web version provides. On my Y! account, I have the ability to send/reply to messages from my single account from a different alias. I have given out these aliases (personal/professional) for a long time, so setting up a whole new account isn't an option I want to pursue. The native mail app allowed me to set up the same Yahoo account with two separate aliases, the Y! App won't let me set up the "other" alias as a new account, saying it's already in use. This is such a PITA, as everything used to work fine in the native mail app. I am guessing there is no effort underway to fix this...
