    New Android User Here!

    Howdy all you Android fans!

    I have been a loyal BB user & abuser for about the last 4 years (currently Bold 9700) and I have had my wife on the original 2G iphone until this last week. I decided to make the leap to Android and I went and bought the myTouch 4G on release day. Well after a few days of playing with it I decided to give it to my wife to relieve her of the iphone 2G that is quite old. I have always been infatuated with the Nexus One so I found a refurb unit (stock 2.2.1) on Craigslist and now I'm hooked!

    So, I have plenty of questions, first one is the Yahoo Mail situation that I have been researching for days now.

    On my wife's phone I can use the workaround since she has a free account.

    My situation on my Nexus One is different. I have the Yahoo Mail Plus account because I have been using Outlook as my email client for many years. Now, I want my Yahoo Mail on my Nexus One to work nicely. So far it is tempermental. I get my Yahoo mail, but it constantly notifies me of "new mail" when it is just the same email that i already have but i just haven't opened yet.

    I know this is a beaten horse, but I have Yahoo Mail Plus and this isn't as often discussed, can anyone help me out?

    I look forward to learning much more! TIA

    Welcome to the Android side

    I'll be surprised if you get any responses about Yahoo Mail Plus. To get the most out of Android you need a Gmail account, and if you've got that, there's not much point having a Yahoo Mail Plus account (paying for what Gmail gives you for free).

    Can you lead me to where I need to go to allow gmail to handle my accounts? I have been reading online that gmail can manage yahoo mail through the gmail service. I can't give up my yahoo mail address and I want it to work like the push gmail service. Thanks.

    That sounds useful. I have a couple of old yahoo accounts that I haven't quite given up on yet. Probably best to start a new thread about it.

    Why not have your Yahoo mail FWD to your Gmail?

    Yeah, I imagine as a Plus user, you're allowed to do that.

    On my Samsung Captivate I had good luck using the Yahoo mail app from the market. (Regular Yahoo not the Plus account).
