    OMG... All I had to do was to change the Security Type to SSL??? I had 'none' before....... as Homer would say.... D'OH!!!


    Btw, what does SSL and TLS stand for?
    Why do ppl call our phones, "Dinc?" Makes it sound like a puny crappy phone or a sound effect when you flick something

    You have Android now. Stop whining and complaining that iphone was easy/better... why the hell did you switch for?
    If youre going to change phones, be sure you're able to accept "CHANGE" and yes thats a change in how things are done. Its plain and simple

    Btw, have a nifty day! (^_^)
    Now... wheres my beer???

    SSL= Secure Sockets Layer, TLS= Transport Layer Security. They're different versions of encryption protocols.

    btw... if i didnt have it set under SSL or TLS before, was I endangering/exposing my emails to not being encrypted?

    I doubt you'd have been able to access your e-mail at all without one or the other (unless there's another major security/ encryption protocol I'm not familiar with). In addition to encrypting messages, SSL/ TLS is used to verify credentials. Without it, in theory, requests to access your account should be denied. So, I wouldn't worry about it. Plus, unless you're e-mailing national security secrets, credit card numbers, etc. your e-mail probably isn't interesting enough for anyone to swipe. Just my perspective though.

    WTF, Labphoto, Lactose, et al - THANK YOU!! I have been bashing my head in and getting close to the true definition of insanity by doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result trying to get yahoo to work.

    Now, wouldn't it be nice if Verizon (or whatever the service provider) could supply this info? All their solutions/suggestions are POP3 based. The IMAP settings worked perfectly.

    Thank you again for your persistence. (I actually created an account on this site just to say thanks - I feel whole again! ;-) )

    So the Yahoo mail appl does download to the Droid incredible, but when you click on the mail icon to view your mail, it will say "login fialed".
    It worked fine for two months, then, NADA...... any suggestions?
