Best Setup for Yahoo Mail Account?


New member

Hi all,

I'm setting up a phone for a friend who uses Yahoo for their mail. If their main concern is keeping their phone and their webmail in sync (e.g. a mail deleted in one place will also be deleted in the other), what's the best way to set up the account? Should I be using the Other option and plugging in Yahoo's imap settings? Or does choosing Yahoo at the setup screen allow for something like that?

Many thanks!

I would try the quick set-up with the Yahoo set-up button - then verify to see if you got the imap settings - and if not, manually change it.
