Getting Token Failed Incredible 4G LTE

Just got a new Incredible 4G LTE and am trying to set up my Yahoo email account.

I got to email.  Choose Yahoo.  Enter my email address and password.

I then get 503 80201: Getting token failed.

This occurs regardless of whether I go via my cellular connection or my wifi connection.

Help!  I need to get email sent to my phone because I'm on the road frequently!

Try selecting "Other" account and manually adding the server settings.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I was getting this same problem on my Yahoo Mail and Windows Live accounts when I tried to add them.  I solved this by ignoring the "Yahoo Mail" and "Windows Live" icons and instead tapping on the "Others" icon. I then entered my account names and passwords as before and then clicked the "Manual" button instead of the "Next" button.  I used IMAP for my Yahoo account and POP3 for my Windows Live acct.  (I believe Yahoo only allows POP3 on the Yahoo Plus accts)
