    Hello
    I just want to confirm that all I have to do is create a new mail account enter my yahoo name and password and the device does the rest? I don't need to upgrade and buy the yahoo plus mail account?
    I saw a youtube video but the port settings are different then what the device automatically did for me.

    Also is there a way to delete mail just on the handheld and not the server too?

    Thanks

    Here is how to set up free yahoo email account:

    - Go to mail icon
    - Add account
    - Enter email address in email address filed (name@yahoo.com)
    - Enter password at password field
    - Select MANUAL SETUP not next
    - Select IMAP
    * username= name@yahoo.com
    * password = yourpassword
    * IMAP server= imap.mail.yahoo.com
    * port = 143
    * security = none
    * optional = blank
    - Select NEXT

    The set up will prompt you to sign in. You will then be taken to the SMTP settings which only prompts you for address which is smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com. leave the port as is. Then select NEXT. Sign in. Name your account and that’s it.
    ;)

    But how does that compare to when I set up my yahoo mail account automatically through the device itself, meaning let the device do all that stuff.

    Thanks

    If you are starting with a fresh accont thats not been established i'd go with googles gmail. Its integration is better and won'r require you to purchase a yahoo plus account to get it to work correctly. The problem with using a yahoo account without plus is that it won't retrieve emails with wifi on, it will only get them over your 3g connection. I upgraded to yahoo plus, its $20/yr but all my personal emails goto it and have for about 10 years now, so its hard for me to get a new account and inform everyone of my new addy. If i was to start one now i'd just grab a gmail account and use that instead.
