Please Login to Remove!

I just got the 8700 with the 29.99 blackberry service. I have one small problem. WHen i go to add my yahoo email account it tells me there is an error and to contact my internet provider. I have the yahoo upgraded mail service too. Does anyone know what this problem maybe? Is cingular's blackberry service down today?
thanks,
Todd

Press Next>

Select the following
I have enabled POP access to my Yahoo! e-mail account and want to add it.
Next>

Input your Email adress

And this should work.

I hope this sends you in the right direction.

I can now recieve emails and reply to emails sent to me. However if i go to email someone it wont send and marks a red x next to the email address. It is attempting to send the email via web client which wont send. If i change web client to my email address manually then it appears to work. Does anyone know how to fix this. I dont want to change it manually on each email i send. It appears to be configured for my email address, but when i compose an email it sends from web client. any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks,
todd
