how to synch to Yahoo



I just had to download the desktop software after a hard drive replacement and I can't get it to synch to my Yahoo account like it used to. The only options given are Outlook and Oultook Express. Can you email instructions on how to fix this?

Re: how to synch to Yahoo

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


Please refer to this KB:

  • KB12268Synchronization support for BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows

As you see, Yahoo is not compatible with the most recent version of the Desktop Software. However, what they have done is include Yahoo in the ability to OTA sync directly with your BB:

  • KB22430 How to enable wireless contact synchronization with BlackBerry Internet Service
  • KB03652 Comparing BlackBerry Internet Service and BlackBerry Enterprise Server features

However, if you must work with the Desktop Software and Yahoo, you can fall back to prior versions which are archived here:

Good luck!
