Hi,

I just bought the Samsung Galaxy S4.

This is related to setting up email.

My questions:

In phone you have to go to Settings - Add account - IMAP.
Then enter data as Kashif provided (your login and pass, incomming and outgoing server address and port(s))

To set up Yahoo! Mail in Android Mail:

From your Android device's Home screen, press your Android device's Menu button.
Tap Apps.
Tap the Email app icon.
Tap Other (POP3/IMAP)
Enter your Yahoo! ID (also can you try if you get an error, entering your email) and password.

If an error occurs (e.g., "Setup could not finish," etc.):

Tap Manual Setup.
Tap IMAP.
Enter the following server setting information:
Incoming server: android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
Port #: 993
Security type: SSL (accepts all certificates)
Outgoing Server: android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Port #: 465
Keep all other settings the same.
Complete the remaining setup process.

hope it helps
