I'm on a corporate server, but have been able to add my 2 personal email accounts to download to my device. But I haven't been able to add my yahoo mail account.

When I'm on the email configuration page, it simply won't accept the yahoo account (all it asks for is user name and PW for all such accounts).

Any ideas?

Also, does my company have access to my private accounts through their server since I've done this?

Thanks!

No they don't have access to your BIS mail, and Cingular won't deal with Yahoo. Corporate competition. Can't remember the ownership issue and wish someone would post it again, but Yahoo doesn't integrate with Cingular. Plenty of pissed off people. I have thought of jumping to VZ.

You can use Yahoo with Cingular if it is a paid Yahoo account, accessible via POP3. This is a polled email account, like any other POP3 account.

Has there been any clear reason why Cingular won't support real-time Yahoo access and access to free Yahoo accounts like other carriers? I haven't seen any real answer.

Obviously there must have been an argument when the strategic marketing people from Yahoo and AT&T played golf or some other "huge issue".

I paid the 20 dollars to get Yahoo Plus. Then I just fowarded my email in yahoo to one of the accounts I was able to set up on my blackberry (I set up a mycingular.blackberry account)

Hope this helps

Actually you can use yahoo on the 8700c. Cingular is pushing their mobile email kinda hard right now and yahoo is one of the 5 email carriers that are supported.

Since when?
As far as I know, Yahoo and Cingular DO NOT play together nicely, at least as far as BB goes (which is strange because some devices work fine, i.e., Y! Messenger on Cingulars RAZR - go figure!)

I just tried. It still doesn't work with free yahoo accounts and BIS 2.0.

Using BIS with Yahoo Mail requires a Mail Plus account - "The ability to access Yahoo! Mail via a POP3 email client (such as Outlook or Outlook Express) is only available to customers of our premium Yahoo! Mail Plus service." (http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/pop/pop-40.html)

It's unclear if you can forward with a standard Yahoo Mail account, however "If you enable email forwarding, you will automatically receive email addressed to your Yahoo! Mail account at your forwarding address. New email will not appear in your Yahoo! Mail account while this feature is activated. (http://search2.cc.dcn.yahoo.com/cct_search.php?ui_mode=answer&prior_transaction_id=778392&action_code=4&highlight_info=16783445,9,17&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fhelp.yahoo.com%2Fhelp%2Fus%2Fmail%2Fplus%2Ffeatures%2Ffeatures-16.html&answer_id=3683882)"

I posted part of this in another chat earlier, but if you are on a BES, their policy can make ALL incoming e-mail go throught their server before going to your BB. Can they read your e-mails, that I don't know, but they can make all e-mails go through their BES before going to your BB if they write the policy to do so. FYI, the policy is a set of instructions that are pushed from the BES to the BB to set certain parameters or limitations.

There was another post earlier today suggesting that unpaid Yahoo mail and Cingular BIS 2.0 accounts work. I tried and it does indeed work. I was able to add it by going to the webclient and adding my Yahoo account information and I'm now receiving my free Yahoo mail account on my 8700.

Yes. There is a way around this however; if your 8700 is unlocked, pop in a T-Mobile sim, sign into Yahoo Messenger so that the app will download the service book, once you're signed in power down, swap back to your cingy sim and surprise, surprise, the Yahoo Messenger service book is still there and it works.

Just for the heck of it I decided to add my yahoo account to my BB 8700C. It worked. Not sure why others have issues. I am on 2.0. Surprisingly, it worked considerably well. I sent an e-mail from a corporate exchange account to my yahoo account and within 5 seconds it was already on my BB.

I never added it because this yahoo account gets spammed to death but I've had it for about 9 years and still use it. *sigh* SPAM!!!! *sigh*
