    Setting Up Yahoo Email


    If you are having trouble setting up Yahoo E-Mail on the Motorola Droid, here are the instructions:

    • Make sure Wi-Fi is turned off
    • Press the E-Mail icon (the default Android E-Mail application)
    • Enter your Yahoo E-Mail address and password
    • Press “Manual Setup” in the lower left hand corner
    • For “Incoming Server Settings” set the IMAP server to “imap.mail.yahoo.com” and the Port to 143
    • For “Outgoing Server Settings” set the SMTP Server to “smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com” and the Port to 587
    • Check “Require sign-in” and press Next
    • Select how often your Droid will check for Email, and choose default options
    • Give the account a name and set your display name for outgoing messages


    Thanks to Phandroid.com for the instructions.

    The yahoo email also has to be the paid yahoo account. Vzw issued a letter saying that free yahoo will not work on the droid.

    Really? I don't see why they'd care. Hotmail sets up without issue & VZW doesn't have anything to do with either do they?
