Default Yahoo Synch Password problem

Please Login to Remove!

I just installed 4.2 SP2 Desktop software today so that my wife could sync with her Yahoo calendar and contacts. I tested it using my yahoo ID and everything worked fine. However, when I tried using my wife's ID I must have put in the wrong username or password and it did not succeed on the first try. Much to my surprise, when I tried to sync again instead of asking for the username and password again, it just tried the same bad username or password. Now, even though I checked “save password” on the first try, you would think it would only save the username and password if it worked…..NOT! Now I’m stuck in the endless loop where I cant change the yahoo synch username or password. There does not appear to be any option in the desktop software to do so and every thing I tried from deleting and re-installing the software did not help. I even tried deleting the Intellisync directory, which forced the program to set up a new Intellisync user profile except it still kept the same bad yahoo ID…..LOL. Obviously this is a flaw in the software, and since I could not find another post here with the same problem, I am thinking so one else has seen it yet. For what it’s worth, I tried this on two different computers, one running XP and the other running Vista with the same results. Anyone have an idea on how to delete or change the password option for yahoo synching once the “save” has been checked?

I have tried the same thing for my wife. I have not been able to sync the blackberry with her Yahoo calendar and address book by using the normal sync. I was able to sync the address book by using the Yahoo Go program, but not the calendar.

You can change the password though. That still did not solve my problem. It still says it is wrong. To change the password, you have to go to:
Configue Sync
Address book, calendar, etc
It then prompts for username and password.

As I said, this has not worked for me. It still gives me password error message.

Let me know if you get yours working.
