Currently Being ModeratedJul 5, 2007 2:12 PM (in response to dakoyote)Well then, maybe Yahoo email may not be the choice for you. Unless you are using the paid yahoo version ($20 a year), the only way to access the free version is with push.iPhone 8GB, iPod 30GB, Dell XPS 710H2C
Currently Being ModeratedJul 5, 2007 2:15 PM (in response to dakoyote)Is this the free Yahoo Push-IMAP account?
If so, Push means Push which doesn't rely on the automatic check for new mail being enabled. A Push-IMAP account is designed for cell phone use which consumes less battery.
If you aren't using or near a WiFi network, turn WiFi off and if you have Bluetooth enabled and you aren't using a Bluetooth headset, turn Bluetooth off.
Are you actively using Safari during this time? PowerBook G4 17-inch/1.67GHz/2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.10), 7200rpm-100GB HD, iPod w/Video

i'll just have it sitting on my desk...send a test email to my yahoo and my work pop3 and ALL go to my phone IMMEDIATELY! and yes, the option to autocheck is set to manual.Dell, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedJul 5, 2007 4:27 PM (in response to dakoyote)I have the same exact problem with .Mac and ALL other mail accounts on my iPhone. I have the mail checking option set to MANUAL (the default incidentally) and my iPhone checks for new mail via Edge or WiFi - whatever- at intervals. I haven't checked to see if the phone is checking at regular intervals and if so, how far apart, but I keep checking to see if I have set the option to check automatically and I definitely never have. This is eating up $$. Anybody have a fix or has anyone spoken to Apple?iPhone 8GB
