Last Friday my Yahoo email stopped working. On that day I did:
1. I said yes to the upgrade on Friday
2. Set up and turned wi-fi on
3. Turned the location feature on
After Yahoo email stopped working I deleted the account from EVO and set up Yahoo email again. It downloaded the emails for the last two weeks but it stopped downloading messages on 7/01/10 the last "good" day before the update I accepted.
I remembered from my G1 days a way to sync the E-Mail app up to Yahoo's free (not PoP3) servers so I gave it try on my new BH2 and it works just fine:Here are the steps: 1. Enter Yahoo ID and Password (hint, just use your "username", not the whole firstname.lastname@example.org 2. Select Manual Setup 3. Setup IMAP 4. Incoming server is imap.mail.yahoo.com 5. Port is 143 6. Security Type is "TLS (if available)" 7. Leave IMAP path prefix blank 8. Hit next 9. SMTP Server is smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com 10. Port is 25 11. Security is again TLS (if available) 12. Check Require sign-in 13. Verify username and password 14. enjoy To Sync up, you CANNOT be on WiFi (dunno why, maybe Yahoo has a deal with T-Mobile?).One other note: if after rechecking all your settings and it still says "invalid username/password" try going onto your Yahoo Account and change your "Location" to ASIA ! Weird I know, but for some reason, some people can't get this to work with US-English as their Yahoo Locale (not talking about your phone's settings here, all on Yahoo site end!).
Home with my new Droid. I have successfully setup my Hot mail and G Mail accounts but having all kinds of trouble with my Yahoo mail account. Receiving error that states "User Name/Password not correct". Anyone have success setting up their Yahoo account on the Droid?
When I first got my Moment, I couldn't get my Yahoo email to work under the "email" app.
I tried the following settings and it miraculously worked! I've been getting my Yahoo email on my Moment flawlessly for the past month: Go to manual setup > IMAP account and change to these settings....
INCOMING Imap server - imap.mail.yahoo.com port - 143 security type - TLS (if available)
OUTGOING SMTP Server- smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com port - 25 security type - TLS (if available) * check Require sign-in
However, my Yahoo email just stopped working on my Moment yesterday (it won't load new emails into my inbox on my phone)! It keeps telling me "username or password incorrect".. WTH!
Is anyone else having this issue recently? Could this be a new change that Yahoo made?
Does anyone else have any ideas of what the next step could be to resolve this? I'll bet my turkey that if I called Sprint Tech Support they would refer me to Yahoo, and if I called Yahoo, they'd refer me to Sprint!
Also, if you are using the same settings that I've been using and it is still working okay for you, please be so kind as to advise- so I know that that setting above is still working, and it is more likely just an issue with my Sprint Account.
I am using the default application for email on the 2.2 OS. When I receive a link on my yahoo mail account I am unable to click on the link so it will open. Is this a bug in the software. I don't recall if this worked in 2.1
Over the past 2 days i have noticed that the green led is no longer flashing when i receive an email.Has anyone else got this issue?I cant see a specific option to enable the led, so i doubt i have turned it off (plus it sometimes works).I was thinking of doing a hard reset - anyone got any advice before i do this?
When ever I try to log in to either my yahoo mail app or my stock email app. I get an error message
Ever since I got my phone which was 3 days ago I couldn't login to the stock email app
The stock email apps gives me this error message: Authentication failed. Please verify your username/password.
I know im not putting in the wrong email and password, because I logged into my email just perfectly on the computer. And I am NOT connected to wifi when I try to login
I downloaded yahoo mail. It was working fine until this morning. When i tried to login it gave me an error message SSL certificate-check date and time error
Also on the stock email app, does have the ability to add more than one account? I never been in the stock app because it won't let me log in. I would love to continue using yahoo mail (if it ever starts working again) but I only have about 25mb left of memory. And the reason I prefer to use that app instead of the stock email is because it allows to add more than one account.
I use to have an Iphone and finally upgraded to my Droid. But thing that i havent figured out how to work is Yahoo messenger to SMS to my droid.
On Iphone, if a friend on yahoo messenger SMS'ed me a text from within it i got it just fine as a txt msg and can reply back, but on the droid, when u send the sms messege, my droid doesnt get anything. I tested with AIM and Live messenger and seemed to work but yahoo doesnt. If anyone has a yahoo account and droid can u please test to see if it works for u?
I just pulled the battery to do a reset last night after a lockup and today I'm getting notifications everytime I get a new email. it never used to do this and i figured it was just cause I didn't use the gmail. now I'm thinking that it just might be one of the background tasks that I was always killing. I recently switched to home++ and I didn't use the built in task killer all day. so I guess my question is, does anyone know which background task would control this so I don't kill it? also, is there a place to go in the settings to change the led color for email alerts?
for some reason my yahoo email keeps alerting new email buts its one that ive already read or deleted? no matter what i do mark as read or delete it few min later new email notification and its the same few emails?
I set up my yahoo mail and I saw that there are options to select how often do I want my email pulled. I was just wondering if there is a way to get my yahoo email instantly (push email) so i can get the email on my phone the moment I receive it (just like gmail)
One problem is that when I go into the Email app and try to access my Yahoo.com email, it says that my username and password are not recognized. Never had this problem with v2.1. Does Froyo email require Yahoo Plus or something? Hope not. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to flash something else?
I've seen various threads about IMAP settings to use for Yahoo email, but it wasn't clear from most of the posts I read whether it was referring to free Yahoo email or a Yahoo-based account associated with home high speed internet. Some gave parameters not using SSL encryption, and I know that would not work for me, but some used very similar setup to what I currently use on my Palm Pre (which uses an IMAP server with "palm" at the beginning of the name, so I don't know if there's a "secret handshake" between the Pre and the server that disallows access via other devices).
I have AT&T DSL (swbell domain email) and am strongly considering dumping my Pre for an EVO, but IMAP access to my swbell account is a must-have. I have a gmail account, but I'm pretty well-established with the swbell account, and don't want to deal with auto-forwarding. So has anyone successfully set up IMAP access to an AT&T/Yahoo email account? I tried using an IMAP server and parameters I found here through Windows Live Mail, but I keep getting some sort of certificate error claiming my system doesn't support something the server is expecting. I have tried in the past with Thunderbird as well using the palm IMAP server, and never succeeded with that either. So I'm a little hesitant to take the plunge until I have a high level of confidence it'll work. Plus I'm waiting for the Android version of HanDBase anyway, since I use that via Classic on my Pre. I don't mind buying an email client if the standard android client doesn't support it. I may do that anyway if there are better ones out there.
Ive had my Evo for a couple of months now and everything worked fine. About 3 weeks ago, i stopped recieving email on my yahoo account. I can still send them from my phone, but not get any new ones. Gmail still works fine. I went to sprint and they played with all my settings, and did a hard reboot on my phone, still no fix.
Second time this has happened since I installed Froyo. For no apparent reaason, the Evo will just stop getting email from my Exchange account. No settings were changed or anything. The only way to get it back is to reset the phone to factory settings.
how to connect your yahoo email to the htc hero but i have tried them all and nothing works. I dont have yahoo plus so is there a way to do it? I had it connected to my blackberry just fine. If there isnt a way to do it are there any apps i could get for it to connect?
I just got the Hero today, and have been trying all day to set up my email but nothing has worked.I've tried my yahoo (the account I prefer) and gmail, but neither work. I keep getting msgs from "incorrect user/password" to "mail server not responding".I've been searching online for a few hrs now trying everything and nothing helps.when I activated the phone the guy said that it would be a while before things like mms would be working; so would it take a while for the email to link up as well?
Today for some reason, I can't access my Yahoo! email. I've been reading and replying fine until now. I don't know if I accidentally changed a preference or what but if I did, can someone help me set it back. The pop-up message I get now when I try to open a message in Yahoo! email says "complete action using..." and gives me the option to "compose" or "mail". I've tried both but "compose" starts a new mail message to verizon wireless, and clicking on "mail" takes me to a new screen asking me to "Choose a mail provider".
How do I make the "new email" flashing green LED continue to flash forever or until I mess with the phone? It works fine, but stops flashing after a while so if I'm not staring at my phone, I could miss the LED indicator and not realize I got a new email. Using the Gmail application (not the HTC email program).
What causes the LED to stop flashing after a while? Is it because the phone is going into a deeper sleep mode that I could configure, or is it because the flashing LED indications stop and there is nothing you can do about it? I checked under notifications and didn't see any setting for "duration" of the flashing LED indicator for emails.
