    First, you need to have Yahoo Mail Plus.

    What you will need:
    1. A Yahoo! Mail Plus account. If you have a regular Yahoo! Mail account, you can upgrade to Yahoo! Mail Plus for a fee. Get more information here.
    2. Turn on POP access in your Yahoo! Mail Plus account setup.
      • Log in to your Yahoo! Mail Plus account on a desktop computer browser and ensure that the POP access option is enabled. This option is located under Mail Options in the Mail Delivery Status page.
    Basic Email Settings for Yahoo! Mail Plus
    Incoming mail (POP3) server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
    Outgoing mail (SMTP) server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com (use authentication, optionally use port 587)
    Account Name/Login Name: your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")

    Now just make sure you have taken care of steps 1 and 2, then go through the mail setup wizard on your Q. Put these settings in EXACTLY as you see them here and it should work for you.

    I experienced the same thing. For the first couple of tries it worked, my yahoo mail that is, but now it isnt? Any other solution other than getting Yahoo Mail Plus?

    This is probably the most stress-free fix if you want yahoo mail to work on your Q. Other than that, you could always forward your yahoo mail to say, gmail or hotmail or some other free email service and get your messages that way. But again, sending emails is going to be hit and miss unless you upgrade to plus.

    I have the newest version of Yahoo Go, and though a little clunky, I can access my yahoo email no problem. Point your browser to mobile.yahoo.com if you wish to download it to your Q.
