    NOTE: If your mail account is on the ".com" server, you can use the top button in the main new account menu instead of going through all the steps below. If it doesn't work, do try the steps provided.

    OK, In order for mail app to work,

    1st. Go to your settings in your mailbox through your web browser,

    2nd. Select POP settings.

    3rd. Select and configure your POP settings and when it says it "Your POP settings have been configured" you can now add your mailbox to the mail app.

    1st. Tap either on mail app or settings>mail>add new account

    2nd. Select other, select the POP button at the top

    3rd. In the fields provided, write your name, mailbox address (example@yahoo.ca), and description you want to be displayed.

    4th. In the Incoming Server type pop.mail.yahoo.ca (can be any international site for example instead of ".ca" you can write ".fr") In the username field write your username without the "@yahoo.ca" and password.

    5th. In the Outgoing server field type stmp.mail.yahoo.ca (again, can be any international site for example instead of ".ca" you can write ".fr").

    6th. Hit save, and it should work. If you get any errors, make sure you typed the right info in all fields provided. If you left the optional username and password fields blank, try filling them in and re-saving.

    PM me incase you get any errors.
    And if you notice any errors above, please post so I can correct it

    Today I got a 8GB from Walmart . Got home googled yahoo mail ipod touch and
    found http://us.m.yahoo.com/

    Yahoo works fine, I got into my account (plus) read new mail and sent a email to
    another email account which was sent and received perfect.

    8GB,
    I was talking about an iPhone application that can be uploaded after jailbreaking. It's similar to Microsoft Outlook. I know mail works though Safari; this app can reduce the time it takes to load the webpage, mailbox, etc.
