Your lucky, I can't even seem to set it up to get my yahoo mail (as I can't set it up in Mail). If anyone knows how to set up Yahoo mail as a Pop server for Apple Mail, I'd greatly appreciate knowing which POP and SMTP you used along with the ports. As I've read of people doing it with the free service but have yet to duplicate it.

Can't you just click the Yahoo Mail icon in mail settings to set it up?

I just looked on Apple.com and noticed some new videos called finger tips, one of them, #8 is entitled "Mail Preferences". However, when i click on it, it's just he skateboarding dog video. Maybe they are still working on that one.

Mine works instantly. I didn't have to set anything up in Yahoo either.

Also...my gmail works just as fast as my Yahoo...weird.

Still don't understand how you guys are getting your Yahoo email to push.
Please provide some assistance to those of us who must manually or schedule the retrieval of Yahoo email.
Thanks.

I didn't do anything special. It wasn't working last night. Just started working today flawlessly. Don't know why or how.

I don't get it. If I click the inbox it will check my yahoo mail. I can also choose to wait 15 mins for it to auto check. Doesn't seem to be pushing anything. For those who believe they've got push working, if your phone is locked are you getting a notification or are you just sitting in the mail app when the pushed mail arrives?

Must be something regional or maybe new accounts have it enabled - definitely doesn't get new mail right away. I've got a private server that I normally use and its setup to send a copy of all mail to yahoo. My private box gets the message first, then yahoo web mail gets it, then after 5-10 mins the phone gets it. Can't tell if its the 15min increment for auto check or just a shorter increment for push.

Anyone with working push while phone is locked in NYC?
