Help! Can't connect my Yahoo Mail to my Blackberry 8900


Each time I try to add my yahoo mail to my BB, I'm told the address is invalid, and to contact Yahoo. I've done so, and they cant seem to say what the problem is. I cant sign into yahoo messanger either

Hi there!


Log into Yahoo via your PC...carefully document the credentials that you use. Use exactly those credentials to configure BIS:


If it won't work from your BB interface to BIS, I suggest trying your carriers browser interface to BIS from a PC.


Good luck and let us know!

Can this answer a little more detailed if it's not a problem...i tried everything that i know to fix this but it just doesnt work for me. I instlaed and reinstaled both the yahoo messenger and the OS on my BB8900 it still doesnt work. This is not the case with any other accounts like gmail and hotmail...the only one i can't use is yahoo mail = yahoo messenger
