    I have setup my yahoo account on my droid, and it is working, but is overworking. What is happening is I keep getting the emails over and over no matter how many times I delete them. I dont understand what I am doing wrong. It works but I delete the emails and they come again and again. I had to delete the account to stop the endless loop. Anyone have any tips on this?

    I am having the same problem. I will have old emails that I deleted pop up and it doesn't sync properly with my yahoo account.

    I would sure think more than just us two are having this issue.

    This is a known issue with either the Droid itself or Android 2.0. To get around having to dish out the cash. Check out the android video over at phandroid:

    Yahoo Mail On The Motorola Droid | Android Phone Fans

    I did the smtp set up, and it works a charm. I think the droid tries to use the pop mail by default to set up yahoo if not doing the manual set up. Hope this helps.

    I am having the same issue with emails never deleting. I started to follow those instructions, but when I got into my account, I saw that there is a setting called 'Delete email from server' that was set to 'Never'. I changed it to 'When I delete from Inbox'. We'll see if that helps!
