Try setting it up as an "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.

Re: cannot set up my second e-mail

Also try by first using the internet browser on your phone to log into your email, cause there are a couple of security hoops you have to jump through. but also I downloaded their mobile app and set that up to. after i did both of thoses things I was able to setup my email in the stock email app. but just do the first one and check. I was frustarted at the time. I had to do this after doing a facory reset when my mail worked fine before and all the settings were fine. after doing that I was able to setup a yahoo mail account using "other mail and setting up manually and using imap settings".
heres the imap mail settings for yahoo mail:
