    Hi all,

    I've had a 1st gen ipod touch for a while now and can connect to my yahoo mail no problem.

    However i've recently bought a new 2nd gen ipod touch, and now when i try to register my account, i get the error message...
    The user name or password for "imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com" is incorrect.

    My username and password are definately correct - I enter them all the time on my PC! And it still work on my old ipod touch, even if i delete the account and then set it up again. And I can access my mail if I use safari, but it's much easier to use the 'mail' app.

    Any ideas? My googlemail works fine on both ipods.

    Cheers.

    You need to set it up to use the Yahoo! POP server, instead of the default IMAP server, and set your account up to enable POP.
    Google it.

    I got it working in the end..
    I think i reset my yahoo password and then it worked.
    Something to do with really old yahoo mail accounts... Resetting your password does something to the account. Don't ask me what... Read it on another forum!
    Good luck.
