    Setting up Mail to use Yahoo

    Every smartphone comes with the ability to install a mail server, based on your login details, using a built-in mail application. This is one of the most easiest and helpful ways to get going right away and can produce the best results, with apps being shaky depending on what phone specifications there are.

    In Android devices, a default ‘Mail’ app is quiet easy to find in the menu and after clicking on it, it will ask for a few simple details on which mail server you are looking to configure. As Yahoo is one of the most common used services, all it will ask for is a username and password, resulting in you now having Yahoo mail up and running.
