    So I go through Set up Email, type in my email address, password and then click next. It doesn't work. I then go back and hit manual setup, but I don' the answers. I'm assuming it's an IMAP account?
    then what's the:
    IMAP Server
    Port
    Security Type
    IMAP Path prefix

    Any help?

    Thanks

    make sure you enter your full email address on the username field. it says username but it must be your email address...name@yahoo.com

    Mine is doing the same thing i entered my complete yahoo email and password and it says invalid username/password, hope I can get this to work.. On another note, does anyone know the difference between the gmail icon and the email icon on the home screen, both seem to be linked to my gmail account right now, so is there a need for both??

    This issue does suck, but if you want yahoo mail you have to have the premium account.

    From a business standpoint it would be more likely that google is hindering the process more than yahoo. Why would they make this open only to premium users? It seems like google would rather "push" people over to gmail by making yahoo hard to sync with as opposed to yahoo demanding people upgrade to use their servies on a mobile platform...just IMHO.
