    Yahoo! Email

    I have been looking around and I was wondering if I could get my Yahoo! mail to work on my Q using this

    Incoming: imap.mail.yahoo.com

    Outgoing: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com

    I have a free account and I was wondering if it worked.

    I just popped it in and it seems to work, but I hope it stays working....Cause I hear that Yahoo is strict on who uses that protocol.

    Well I found them off a Palm website, but they said sometimes it goes out..But so far I can send/receive. It's better than using that crappy yahoo app

    I'm no fan of yahoo either but why all the trouble when you could simply use yahoo mobile? It's all email anyway..

    Go into your email settings and set up a vacation response that says you have switched to gmail. Whenever someone emails you it will auto reply the message. :smile:

    if it's just newsletters from different websites and such you should be able to go to the website and change the email they send it to. *revolutionary*
