Coming from a Blackberry, I am very interested in learning about the push email service offered by Yahoo. Does one simply sign up for a basic Yahoo email account and then add that account to the iPhone (under Yahoo). Or, is there something else that must be done to get a yahoo push email address?
Thanks.

Mike

So did you just setup your Yahoo email account on the Phone? Any special setup?

I ask since I have to wait till Monday to activate the phone, due to Business Office not open on weekends.

Thanks.

Thanks for the info. Glad to know you are working well. Off-Topic, how are all the other functions? I am reading that the volume is a little low, and the WIFI is not working for some. How are these for you?

I am sure they will update the software for that, if there are enough complaints.

Anyone know if you can set up Yahoo Mail on a mail client, such as Outlook for Windows or MacOS X Mail application? Do they let you do this?

I found it comes and goes as far as working is concerned. I've sent test messages and received them immediately and others did not come out for a while.

Also, it seems it does not check (push) if the phone is sleeping (i.e. locked due to inactivity)

Well, I just checked my yahoo mail and it downloaded a message that had been sitting there for an hour!

WTF Apple/ATT/Yahoo

Sometimes the emails come instantly...Other times they will sit there until the end of days. WTF is going on.

Oh and why does my email app crash everytime I send an email through yahoo. GMail works fine!

Yes it does, but it is not immediate when you configure it. Also, maybe a restore of the iPhone would help. I restored mine and it works perfect, no lag, no errors, no problems.

The sending crash is a problem many of us are having since earlier today. It appears to be due to some change Yahoo may have made -- perhaps affecting primarily Yahoo! Plus accounts.

So yahoo mail push is a dead duck as far as I am concerned. It works for 30 mins after you turn it on and then disappears like a fart in the wind.

No problem I thought. It's only my personal mail, I can wait 15 mins for even the most important spam so I set it to fetch every fifteen minutes. This morning I wake up (phone has been on all night) and have no email. This is especially odd as I sent myself an email last night to check it was working.

I go to my inbox and suddenly 14 emails are downloaded. So far I have missed out on a free breast reduction, a herbal hard-on and a night of hardcore sex with a shaven brazillian lady. I can manage without the first two but I'm pretty annoyed about the last one!

Anyone got any ideas?
