    Yahoo Imap Vs POP

    OK....

    I've had my Q for almost a month now (Sprint service), and my personal email account is Yahoo.

    I had the hardest time finally setting up a Yahoo POP account that worked decently (and yes, I paid the 20.00 to Yahoo to enable it). It was just today that I finally got it to send out an email via the POP setup (you have to take "mobile" out of the outgoing server field so that it says "smtp.mail.yahoo.com" or something of the sort.

    ANYWAY:

    I have had great success with Yahoo setup as a IMAP account. It send and receives much quicker (just sent an email from the Q to my work account in under 1 minute) than the POP account does. The issue is that it works sometimes and does not others.

    What the heck???
