Default Setup Yahoo! Mail

I was disappointed when Yahoo mail could not be setup on the DS7. I did not want to install the Yahoo Mail app just to have mail, so I did a little research and found that you can setup Yahoo mail manually with the following settings.

To set up IMAP on your mobile device please use these settings:
•Incoming Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
•Outgoing Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
•Incoming Port - 993 (requires SSL)
•Outgoing Port - 465 (requires SSL/TLS)
•Username: full email address (for example, bill@yahoo.com or bill@rocketmail.com)
•Password: the password you login to Yahoo! with.


For step by step instructions, see this article.

I believe pop3 is only available for paid member.

I was pretty shocked to see that it doesn't support HTTP: mail accounts too...

Anybody have the same kind of setup info for Hotmail?

Hotmail can be setup with automatic wizards just fine... I am not sure why you need to set it up manually.

Yahoo is an IMAP email system... the free ones... follow the OP's guide.
