Re: N9 Yahoo mail can't send mail

seemed to work fine on my device, both sending and recieving.

check to make sure your outbound settings are correct on the email.

accounts/(yahoo email)/outgoing mail server/server address

it should be:

nokia-free.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
ssl
port-=465
secure auth = plain password

Its just an authentication error and or the n9 unable to resolve the smtp server. I had the same problem after flashing my N9 to the new PR1.1

Just delete the Yahoo Mail id from the devices accounts and add again.

Re: N9 Yahoo mail can't send mail

hi..

 

noticed the same prob that can't send email w yahoo on N9

this was the solution i found to work:

 

1. Just add yahoo mail account as other mail account's automatically

2. You need to change the setting's on the outgoing mail server only to this one:

 

server type: SMTP

username: (your yahoo user@yahoo.com)

server address: smtp.mail.yahoo.com

secure connection:smileyfrustrated:SL

port: 465

secure authentication: Plain password

 

and now u will be ready to send email...i did struggle w the settings a while to find this one to work...

I had the exact same problem. New emails to be sent remained in outbox and the phone reported an error for the mail transfer. Indeed changing the outgoing mail server from nokia-free.smtp.mail.yahoo.com to just smtp.mail.yahoo.com ficed it...is nokia-free.smtp.mail.yahoo.com anyway?? I guess it's the exceptional result of the long ago announced ccollaboration between Nokia and Yahoo: so great that it a simple mail conf

I'm in Germany using a Nokia N9 and a T-Mobile SIM

I cannot send or receive emails using my Yahoo account.

I've tried with and without "nokia-free" prefix but still it says "Unable to connect"

 

Using wifi it works great.

Re: N9 Yahoo mail can't send mail

I'm having the same issue with my N9,wouldn't work at all the other day , tried deleting and reinstalling account, manual settings for imap and pop to no avail and after about 8 hrs it started working on receive only, won't send mail. Also keeps asking me to sign into my Nokia account!! Would really like a definitive answer or solution as it is both very annoying and limiting , I know other N9 users have the same issue !!

If I have helped at all, a click on the White Star is always appreciated :

Re: N9 Yahoo mail can't send mail

My N9 used to work properly but after PR1.2 email (send) stopped working as described in this thread. It just keeps asking password, and then fails to send the email. Really, really annoying.

 

I’ve tried re-setups, different server names, etc. but no help. Folks, any advice?
