Backflip: POP3 & Yahoo (UK accounts don't need Plus)

Hi,

Any help with setting up my UK based Yahoo mail on my Backflip via POP3. Just can't get it to work. I have seen the threads about needing a paid account, but I'm pretty certain that is not the case with yahoo.co.uk addresses (take a look at their UK site).

Any suggestions greatly appreciated,

Fateyes

Have you tried plugging the recommended settings into a generic e-mail account instead of selecting Yahoo when you add the account? When you add the account select Email for the account type. And don't let it auto configure. Find the server settings on the yahoo UK pages and enter them yourself, so that you know they are correct.

This is a just a guess that there might be a difference.

Also, make sure you aren't on wifi when setting it up. Yahoo mail only works over your data plan. Even to just check mail once it's set up.

And We're back...
