I have been looking on here for 2 days on how to get my email to work again. I have tried everything that I have read so far nothing works. I use Yahoo and it worked fine till I updated to 1.1.4 and jailbroke with ziPhone. That was 2 days ago. Help me please someone?

What is going wrong with Yahoo Mail exactly?

A few comments / thoughts for you:

Did you use latest version of ZiPhone (3.x)? If so, others may chime in here, but I believe it is not as good a version as the 2.5 versions of it were.

Did you setup your phone with a new partnership with iTunes or restore a backup? Generally, new partnerships lead to *MUCH* better results ...

It tells me that my username or password is invalid. I used the latest version of ziPhone and I used the back up from iTunes. I don't use outlook so all my contacts are in the phone.

I thought latest version is supposed to not have any password issues - that sucks.

Few things you could try:

Try a restore to clean 1.1.4 (backup your contacts with TimeCapsule app if necessary and email them to yourself so you can restore them back afterwards) and then setup a NEW partnership with iTunes instead of restore from backup. This fixes *so* many jailbreak issues.

If you don't want to restore and JB again, try looking for answers vi ZiPhone's IRC channel - find the details at the ZiPhone blog:

Ok another question. If my mail isn't working how can I email it to myself?

That would be great if I was smart enough to know how to ssh!

Can you suggest one that will work? One that will notify all my contacts of the change?

SSH isn't all that hard. I can walk you through via IM. My username is jbanks290.
