    Default [mail app] cant add my yahoo account

    Hi, i am almost sure that i was able to add my yahoo email on 2.0.1 (first time i ever tried, i started using it again for a college subject that uses a yahoo group), then i updated to 2.0.2 and i cant add it again

    i either get one of this messeges:

    a) Cannot Get Mail
    The user name or password for "imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com" is incorrect

    b) imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com is unreachable, check your network conection

    (the 2nd message was longer but i dont remember it)

    any ideas ?

    Free Yahoo Email does not offer IMAP or POP the last time I checked (long ago), so unless you paid Yahoo I dont think it will work, I think I posted a work around on these forums somewhere, involved getting a gmail account though.

    i have a gmail account too (the one i do use )

    i knew that yahoo didnt offer "anything" to free users on the desktop clients, but i thought that apple had some kind of deal with them for the iphone, specially since i was able to add my account before (maybe that was a glitch ? )

    its jailbroken, yes, and it has not been answered.

    gmail account works fine
    mail2web exchange too.

    i used pwnage for 2.0, then 2.0.1, then restored to 2.0.2 and used quikpwn there.

    Same here, 2.0.2 killed the Mail app pretty much, wouldn't even launch before I fixed some permissions (chmod+chown).

    I get the same error as above (username or password incorrect), even though the settings are right.

    [edit: fixed, see below for howto link)
