Nokia Lumia 920 - doesn't recognize Ymail account

[ Edited ]

Hello,

I've just switched from android to w8 and I am having problems adding my YMAIL account to my Nokia Lumia 920. When I add a regular yahoo account it works great, but apparently, it doesn't know that you can have an [at]ymaildotcom e-mail so I was wondering if anyone can explain to me what I have to do as I couldn't find info on the web for my specific problem.

 

When I try to add it, it says that it doesn't have the settings for the account I have just entered. At one point last night I did manage to add it.. in a way, but when it started syncing, it never ever finished :smileyhappy: I then deleted it and tried again but with no luck..

 

Also, in addition, if anyone knows if or how you can make your tiles different colors as I saw in pictures online, I would appreciate a tip as well.

 

Thank you for your time :smileyhappy:

Just wanted to say I solved it by manually introducing some settings for yahoo mail that I found online.

Where did you find the settings?  Did you add them in the advanced settings?  I am having the same problem. 

Strange part is my Ymail has worked for 3 months and I just starting have this not reccognizing problem.

Set up your Ymail account under Settings > email+accounts > Add an account > Advance setup then use this mail server settings

 

Yahoo! Mail Settings

 

    Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
    Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)

 

POP Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings

 

    Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)

Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)

Re: Nokia Lumia 920 - doesn't recognize Ymail account

I have made these settings and the account syncs. I receive me emails but went I try to send an email it has errors and until I go into my outbox and delete the email trying to be sent. This is becoming very disappointing. I probably will not buy Nokia again
