    Yahoo email does not work over wifi, you must use the mobile network.

    Yahoo does not offer pop/imap access on its free accounts. You have to access it via the web browser. Though they have updated the mobile web interface so its much better looking now.

    Really? On a feature phone I had no problems setting up my yahoo account while receiving notifications.

    You mean to tell me that a smartphone can't even perform this feature?

    If you follow my instructions above it will work. Try it! Works for me and other Android users.

    Nope, never mind. . . . I so though it worked, and it might some times.

    Just tried it, does nothing. . . . . . Great stuff. . . .

    I was on the K9 code project page and noticed that a guy built a fix for the Yahoo over wifi issue. Not exactly sure how to implement it, but figured I'd let people know if it was causing them a headache.

    forgot to mention didn't change any of the numbers just left them alone, figured both numbers maybe phone specific.
  18. Doesn't matter what I do, nothing's working, and that's all there is to it.

    The K9 version that was released today incorporates the Yahoo email via wifi issue. I just tested it and it works!

    Here are my notes for getting yahoo imap set-up (I have a mail plus account):

    username= name@yahoo.com
    password = yourpassword
    imap server= imap.mail.yahoo.com
    optional = blank

    I was able to set up the mail, but I am unable to open video attachments. Is there anything I can do?

    If its a format the phone is unable to play(ie the stock media player or any other player downloaded from market) then it wont play. In the same way on a PC, the computer recognizes the file type and opens it with the associated program, its how it works on Android. If nothing is associated with the type of file attached, it wont do anything.
