Hi everyone,
I' m trying to configure my Yahoo! Mail account on the standard mail application of the HTC and I can't go through.
The fields required are :
- protocole (pop, apop or imap)
- mail address
- user name
- password
- pop server (
- security type (none, SSL or TLS)
- port number

I'm not sure what parameters to set-up.
Any clue ?
Thanks in advance

It should be possible, but apparently you need a Yahoo plus or premium account.  Don't use Yahoo myself, I just googled on the problem.

Have you tried looking here?

It says that it should be possible and does not mention that you need anything other than a standard account.  I have not tried it myself.

Let us know how you get on, good luck.

Just found this on the market

If you do not use AppBrain then firstly I find it excellent and secondly try searching the Android market from your phone for "Yahoo! Mail".  Mixed reviews however.

i was having same problem so i ended up here while trying to find solution

Thanks to Tricky that i could solve this problem now

when you try to add yahoo account try as normal with email address and password
i know you will get error message and i think most of us have problem here and could not go beyond.
NOW go to manual or advance set up
where by default protocol is in 'pop' change it to 'imap'
and rest of the others settings should have been filled as you had tried before
NEXT go to pop sever which later will be changed to imap server and edit the default '' to ''
and leave the rest as it is and hit next
it should solve your problem as it did mine, IF NOT i guess we both didnt had a similar problem LOL Tongue
happy surfing yahoo mail in ur HTC Desire
