    TMO Pearl Hooking In Yahoo Email

    Advertisement



    Anyone else having problems with their pearl in regards to hooking in their yahoo email?

    I've set up my pearl so that it can receive/send email using my yahoo email (via "set up Internet E-mail" option). This has been working for several months. All of a sudden, I can't recieve nor send any emails using my yahoo account on my BB. I tried deleting my yahoo email account and trying to add it again. But when I try to add, it keeps saying "unexpected error" occurred. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I am also having problems today with Yahoo email. I keep getting messages that my email is invalid, and for some reason, I can't validate it. It has worked fine for two or three months.

    Re: TMO Pearl Hooking In Yahoo Email

    it looks like yahoo had changed the mail server and many email accounts became invalidated that are provided by yahoo. for example, the sbcglobal server changed from imap.rim.yahoo.com to pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com when reintegrated into the bis.

    usually removing and readding it will fix the issue.

    There is an issue going on (with TMO for sure and probably other companies b/c i think it is a RIM issue) with yahoo based email ( ie. sbcglobal, bell south, yahoo hosted email etc.) Email accounts are not getting validated. You can delte and readd or revalidate and it may update but sooner or later it will go back to not validated, until RIM/ carrier fixes the issue.

    It happened to me this morning. It looked to me as if Yahoo had changed the login protocols. When I deleted the account and created it all over again, everything worked fine.
