Setting up Verizon/Yahoo Email on an Android phone

Does anyone have information on exactly how to configure an "account" on an Android for those of us that have a "Verizon" branded Yahoo email account?  You can't use the Yahoo account option apparently because it requires you to enter your address and you don't have one you have a however you are using Yahoo.  I set it up just fine without a problem on my iPod Touch however I can't set it up on my Android phone.  The Yahoo Android app is useless because there is not a compose email button, Contacts or Calendar option that I can see for Yahoo at least.  I don't want to configure it with POP3 because I really don't want to download all my external mail as I store it all on their server.  Does anyone out been able to configure this type of account on an Android?  Thanks.
