    Yahoo Mail (NOT Plus) and the Droid

    From what I have been reading people have only been able to get yahoo mail to work with "Plus" accounts.

    This is a workaround that allows you to work it without paying the $20 a year.

    Found this on another forum...

    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

    you will then be prompted to sign in do so.

    will then be taken to the smptp settings which only prompts (going form memory) 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.

    Very important, you must have WIFI disabled or this will not work.
