    Problem in setting up yahoo email account

    When I tried to set up my Yahoo email account, a pop up says "Mailbox access is not supported for some types of Yahoo! mail accounts. If you have trouble connecting,visit yahoo.com for more info." So I pressed OK & another pop up says "Setup could not finish. Username or password incorrect"
    I know my username & password are correct.
    Failing which I tried the "Manual set up." Same thing happened.
    Now I have downloaded the "Yahoo Messenger" app & use it to retrieve my mail which is not very good is it?
    Cheers mate!!

    i did a quick search on here:

    How to set up Yahoo email on your android phone
    Other phones will make fun of your virgin phone. Then your virgin phone will feel ugly and fat. It will have self esteem issues and start to hang around iPhones. Then it will end up in a dark drawer next to a dirty iPod and a whole lot of regrets. Is this want you want WERA!!
    For the love of God and your Nexus One. Root it!!!:rofl3::rofl3::rofl3:

    I think it is because Yahoo now requires you to purchase a Yahoo! Plus account to use as a pop or imap email

    nexgoose, thanks for your help.
    It seems that with the wifi on I cannot do a manual set up. It must be off first. No wonder I can't do it because my wifi was on.
    Having said that, yahoo mail by itself will only work with wifi off.
    Funny enough if you retrieve mail from Yahoo messenger app then with wifi on is not a problem. Beats me!!!

    The workaround is to set your region to Asia in yahoo mail. This gives you pop3 forwarding access. Other regions (not all) work as well. I don't know why yahoo is the only mail service that insists on charging for pop3...

    Actually, imap access is free, but can only be accessed through a mobile carrier. This is why you get errors when trying to access it over wifi.

    I suggest installing the Yahoo Mail app from the Android Market. It's straight from Yahoo and it works flawlessly. I actually deleted my Yahoo email account from the Mail app and moved to the Yahoo Mail app. I totally recommend it.

    Now if only Microsoft would create a Hotmail app for Android...

    My friend is using the Yahoo Mail app on his Milestone, he loves it. I saw it in action, looks like full push & sync just like the GMail app.
