I know what an authentication error means... and I've entered my information correctly.
I'm wondering if Apple/AT&T make you use edge the first time you check your mail to verify that you actually have an iPhone. Just wondered if anyone had actually gotten IMAP to work.
I am with the others. (I thought) Yahoo is only POP and you have to subscribe to it's plus service to access it.
Yahoo! does not in fact appear to use IDLE, but rather some other scheme which looks to involve sending the new message notification over the cell network.
Try changing your password. Troubleshooting this with a friend led us to determine that non-new accounts seemed to have authentication errors, whereas new accounts worked fine. That led us to try changing his password, and it worked immediately after that.
Yeah, to clarify, I was speaking from my experience with my and my friend's iPhones. Wasn't paying close enough attention at the time about the issues the ported app would face on an iPod Touch. I suspect that the EDGE connection is important to the push feature, even when on WiFi. After all, mobile phones customarily can have data pushed to them...phone calls, SMS, voicemail notifications...why not e-mail?No, guys, really! The iPhone comes with FREE YAHOO PUSH IMAP. It's special for the iPhone only.
many of us have Yahoo accounts for ever and dont want to change our email addy just to use the touch's mail appIt's a problem no more. Gmail announced IMAP support for free, so screw Yahoo!
I assume no update to this authenication error? I got the same thingSo, I'm trying to get the Yahoo Push Style mail working on my iPod and this is the screen I get in the mail application.
I live in the US and therefore have a yahoo.com address. Any ideas? Is everyone else having this problem as well?
