Question help!! email add wont attach....

Please Login to Remove!

guys, please... anybody.... newbie here...

i just got my 1st BB and only recently I activated it with one of the networks here offering BB support in my place....

I was very much amazed by the features BB has to offer, like it can accomodate 10 difft email adds in your fone...

when i tried to add an email (@yahoo.com)... it keeps on saying:

"Invalid email address or password: Please verify your email address and password. The information you provided is inorrect. If the error persists contact yahoo.com (your email provider)"

what is wrong with it? I tried many times ensuring i am typing correctly.... i even tried using the PC to add my email but still im getting same message...

another thing, when i added my other email (@hotmail.com), theyv sent me a mesage saying "Action Required: Leave messages on the server"

im just using the regular mozilla firefox in opening emails or just the internet explorer... what do they mean about it and how can i do it?

1. the message about leaving emails on server is ONLY if you are using an email client like outlook/thunderbird/windows live mail etc.

2. some countries, the adding of yahoo accounts to BIS is not allowed. What country are you in?

MidnightDraven, thank you very much sir for that information...

about that server thing, i just found out that i can now receive email when somebody sent me one this afternoon.... thanks!!

well, im in Uganda (East Africa) now.... going here, I passed by Dubai where I bought my BB 9000 and i just had this phone activated here thru local networks (Uganda Telecom - UTL)... How can I know if they dont allow Yahoo here? geez, that will be a big frustration... I hope its not...

Many thanks again!!
