    Alright, Ive restored my 1.1.4 more than once over time from testing all kinds of stuff.

    After restoring my ipod and jailbreaking 1.1.4 which is nothing new to me, i recreated my mail accounts. I have 2. One Gmail, and one Yahoo.

    Gmail worked fine.

    Yahoo does not work. I get the error "The user name or password for "imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com" is incorrect."

    But I know it is right. I logged onto it with the same info on my computer.
    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance.
    I am on 1.1.4, jailbroken.

    what did you use to jailbreak? a ziphone version??

    I've got my yahoo back by setting up my iPhone as a NEW phone, and using yahoo mail (and youtube) before jailbreaking with ziphone.

    and my Yahoo account is a FREE one... here in the US. IMAP on the iPhone, and POP on the computer.

    This might seem like a dumb question, but you guys have the premium yahoo accounts right? Not the free ones?

    Mine is free, NOT preminum.

    And yes, I used the ZiPhone, from the Ipodtouchmaster vid.

    HAHA. FunkyMonkey saw it coming too.

    I'm keep it short and simple. Free Yahoo! Mail accounts does not work with Mail.app. There's no way around this. Forwaring your Yahoo! emails won't work as well because you also have to have a preminum account to do so.

    Edit: This problem has been there since day 1. Some people might tell you to use services like Izymail, but generally I think that's stupid because it's only a trial version that last for several weeks.

    wait really, it did work? hmm... I never did follow the 1.1.3 jailbreak when it came out because none of them were hard jailbreaks. That's very interesting. Then behold, someone might fix it if it was possible before.
