    Yahoo Mail Notification

    I am using Yahoo Mail through the Market's Yahoo App. I am looking for a way to put an audio notification on this when email arrives. Currently it is vibrating only. I sent an email to my gmail account and got an audio notification. I have looked all over the Yahoo app and have not seen an option to change this notification. Any help appreciated

    Open the app, push the menu hard key and go to settings/preferences and select notifications

    When I open the Yahoo Mail app, press the hard menu key I am presented with the following: Compose, Search, Refresh, Messenger, Options, and More. Under Options I see the following: General Settings and my email address. Under General Settings I have Notification sounds (says under this one " Use sound and vibrate when mail arrives") which can be either checked or unchecked. poor picture, but maybe helpful

    Ok, if you have it checked, then you should be getting audible notification. Are you on a stock phone?

    Yes, received phone from Verizon last week. I did find out that if I login to Yahoo messenger, I do get a sound. I did not choose this sound and don't know where to change it, but it did produce a short tone when an email arrived. I am not active on Yahoo messenger, but if that is what it takes I guess I will have to keep that going.

    Have an early wake up tomorrow so I am shutting down for the evening. Thanks for your respones and I'll check back tomorrow evening.

    Ok. FYI if you have more than one email account you can use an email client like k9 to consolodate them into one. It also has better notification settings then stock apps.

    How to change Notification Setting On the Yahoo App for Droid

    I tried the Hard Press Menu that was mentioned earlier and either my phone is different or I am not doing something right because I don't get a menu that has any kind of settings option on it

    Here is how I did this.

    open the Yahoo App and go to one of your email accounts

    On the top of the screen there is an ICON that looks like three lines (it's next to the word "Inbox")
    Press this and you should get a listing of all of your folders you have in this email account
    Scroll down to the bottom of the list and you will see an option called "Settings"
    click settings and you will see a list of all of your emails with the words "Account Settings" above each one
    Pick one and select "Account Settings"
    the first option that shows is "Notification Settings"
    press this
    Now you can "Choose A Sound" or turn on/off the vibrate option
    Make sure you click "DONE" at the bottom to save your choice of Sound.

    Once you make the change hit the Back Key on your phone and you can select another email to change

    Hope this helps someone out there
