    FYI, in step (2/4) under User Information, make sure you put your User Name with the @yahoo.com.

    Verify server information on step (4/4) is...
    Incoming mail: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Outgoing mail: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    I've got this all working in Chatter finally (3.0.9+).

    What I figured out is that the SMTP username is your username without the "@yahoo.com" but the IMAP username requires the "@yahoo.com".

    Hope that helps those that are having problems.

    Hey all,
    I had been using the IMAP yahoo email servers through the WM5 outlook client on the phone. Gotta say it was pretty darn sweet. Then on November 9 it stopped working, it did keep prompting me for a username and password. I was sad. Tried to delete and set up another account a few times over the next week, but it didn't work. Now just this morning (December 5) it did work! Yay!

    I did contact yahoo about this, but although I got an answer, it didn't really address my problem. I have the same theories: Outlook tried to login a few times and garbled the password, locking the account; Yahoo took the server down for whatever reason (but I don't think that's true for the whole user community, there would be an uproar I would think), maybe just a few users at a time as they migrate accounts internally; and finally:
    I do know that before this error, my SD card popped out randomly, and at some time later I noticed that there were two 'Storage Card' "directories" in the root of the internal storage. One was called 'Storage Card 1,' and it had only one directory (a mail storage directory that was pretty empty if I remember correctly) which is maybe where yahoo was downloading in the interim. I deleted 'Storage Card 1' because I like to keep things clean, and the failure in yahoo outlook mail was soon after that. So maybe they were related...

    Anyhoo, it's back up. So if you lose your yahoo! IMAP in outlook, be patient, it looks like theres hope...

    Also: Yahoo! Go is cool and all, but it seems a bit cumbersome for what it does. The photos feature is cool though...

    I wouldn't hold your breath.
    Since it originally became available sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    then tap and hold or click and hold over the accnt you want to delete. delete will pop up as an option.
