Re: Yahoo e-mail

Sorry I don't believe you. 

Where do you put in the SMTP settings ?   Do you have Yahoo mail PLUS ?     I'm willing to bet you have Yahoo mail PLUS.

Re: Yahoo e-mail

No plus just free yahoo account

When you set up yahoo

1) imput your user name

2) imput your password

3) do not hit next hit manual set up in the bottom left corner

4)this will take you to manual settings and follow original post if you still have problems go to sprint store or to place of purchased you might have a defective device I did for my gmail sync with apps, I exchanged at best buy (where I purchased) and it works perfect know.

Re: Yahoo e-mail

It seems that when you are on Sprint's network, Sprint has an open Yahoo! mail server with Palm. However the Palm/Yahoo! server seems to work with any smartphone that is not a Palm smartphone! (Including the Samsung Moment and the HTC Hero!)

Here are the settings and let me know how it goes! (Note : This will only work on the Sprint network...if you use WiFi it may not work)

Yahoo! (Sprint only)

Note When entering your username for incoming and outgoing mail server settings, include @yahoo.com as part of your username.

Mail type: IMAP

Incoming mail server

Incoming server: palm.imap.mail.yahoo.com
Port: 993
Encryption: SSL

The outgoing mail server settings will pop up after you click next on the incoming mail server settings.

Outgoing mail server

Outgoing server: palm.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Use Authentication: On
Port: 465
Encryption: SSL
After entering this information it should take you to a screen asking how often you want the app to check your yahoo account for emails.
