Update: Setup Yahoo! Email on Your Motorola Droid

We are getting lots of questions regarding setting up Yahoo email on your Droid phone.

I just tried it on mine again (I DO NOT have a Yahoo! Plus account) and it worked fine. I followed the directions on this post exactly.

Make sure that you are selecting Manual Setup in the bottom left corner. Then select IMAP (do not select POP3). Other than that just enter all the information as it shows. Enter your ENTIRE email address for your username.

Please let us know in the comments if this is working for you or not.

    Long story, but on my first Android, I did this with no problem. It worked fine.

    Got a second Android and tried this today (Dec 13 2009) and it no longer works? Has yahoo implemented some protection against integration with Droid?

    I can’t get past the first screen when trying to set-up my Yahoo email account. When I hit next, it says it cannot connect to the server – and I have full bars!

    How can you set up a yahoo business email address on the Droid? (yourname@youryahoobusinessname.com). I have tried over a month to find something that works and still unable to receive my mail on my Droid.
