Hello there. Sam here.

I'm just writing to ask about mobile email. I have a Windows Mobile 6 device and want to synchronise my yahoo email with it. From looking through the forum I came across the below mobile email software and installed a trial of it successfuly.

It seems so far to be pretty good, but I was wondering if anyone knows more about this before I bite the bullet??

Thanks in advance for any advise!

Sam :)

You should be able to use Outlook which is included in WM6 (and WM5) without needing to purchase other software.

I have done this with gmail - although I prefer the online version on my phone (T-Mobile Vario 3 = HTC TyTnII). The address for yahoo mobile is m.yahoo.com

All the POP/SMTP settings are within options but are:
Incoming Mail Server (POP3): pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk
Use SSL, port: 995

Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk
Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication

Account Name/Username: *******
Email address: *******@yahoo.co.uk
Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password

Enter these into Outlook on your WM6 device and it should work, either when docked or via 3G/GPRS - be wary unless you have a reasonable data tarif.

Is this useful or do you need more than Outlook has to offer?

Good luck.

Not to collect my email on my xda if out and about...If I have 20+ emails (many junk) It just chews up my monthly allocation. If I'm lazy and at home, I connect to my wireless network which cost me nothing.
