    Yahoo e-mail using Pocket Outlook

    This might sound dumb.....but I think I finally did it! And you DO NOT need a premium yahoo account to download your e-mail to your phone. After looking at my brother's T-Mobile Dash, I noticed that he was able to download his free yahoo e-mails directly to his phone using Pocket Outlook. I've searched the forums before and never really found anyone to access their free yahoo mail other than using the yahoo Go software. Well this is how you do it..........................

    1. Follow the steps on setting up e-mail through Pocket Outlook.

    2. Put in your yahoo user name and password.

    3. Use the IMAP4 Server type

    4. Put in imap.mail.yahoo.com for the incoming server

    5. Put in smtp.mail.yahoo.com as the outgoing server.

    6. You DO NOT need to check off the"require SSL connection" or "outgoing server requires authentication" settings.

    That is it folks.....and then you can get your yahoo mail using pocket outlook.

    This is my first post by the way.....
