How to access Yahoo email over WiFi, problem solved.

If you have setup your Yahoo account using the Yahoo clientImage and can't access your email over WiFi, we suggest trying the email client found on your device. To do this please follow these steps:

Note: This will also work while on your ATRIX through the AT&T network. (Also works for other Yahoo email providers: ATT.net, Bellsouth, pacbell, sbcglobal, swbell)

Tip: Already have an existing Yahoo account using a previous MOTOBLUR account and it's not working? Click here for help.

To setup your Yahoo email:

Open Applications tray, Tap Accounts
Select Add account
Select Email icon (under "Email" uncheck the box to continue with manual set-up)
Image
Enter the manual settings as listed below
Use these settings to manually set up your ATRIX for any Yahoo server email accounts.



Incoming Server:

IMAP Server

Server: moto-android.imap.mail.yahoo.com

Port: 993

Username: username@yahoo.com

Password: password

Use secure connection - CHECKED

Verify Certificate – CHECKED



Outgoing Server:

SMTP Server

Server: moto-android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com

Port: 465

Username: username@yahoo.com

Password: password

Use secure connection - CHECKED

Verify Certificate – CHECKED


OTHER YAHOO SERVER SETTINGS:

Server type:

IMAP

Incoming Server:

Server: Imap.mail.yahoo.com

Port 143

Use secure connection – UNCHECKED

Verifies Certificate – UNCHECKED



Outgoing Server:

Server: Smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com

Port 587

Use secure connection – UNCHECKED

Verifies Certificate – CHECKED



Note:

When updating the Use secure connection settings, check the Use secure connection box first and then update the port number if necessary.
If unable to connect, send, or receive on Wi-Fi connection, try again via 3G/4G
New Yahoo accounts created after August 2010 may not work properly on Wi-Fi. We have been informed that Yahoo has corrected this behavior on their servers as of 9/14 and this issue should no longer occur.




Tip: In the event you can not sync your Yahoo contacts to your device, you can export them Yahoo to Gmail:

Follow these steps to export contacts from Yahoo to Gmail:

Export Contacts from Yahoo

Using a computer, from your Yahoo! Mail menu, select Options > Mail Options.
Click the 'Contact or Address Book' category.
Select "Import/Export" under 'Management'.
Look for "Yahoo! CSV" under 'Export' and click Export Now.
Click Save.
Choose the location on your computer where you want to save the "Yahoo.csv" copy of your Yahoo! Mail address book.

Import Contacts into Google Gmail:

Log on to Gmail on your computer, and then click Contacts at the left of the page
Contacts list opens
Click Import
Click Browse, and then navigate to the .csv file that you created from Yahoo
Select the file, and then click Import
After your contacts are imported, a dialog box appears and displays the total number of contacts imported
