I am having the following problem (see below) when trying to set up my rogers.com email account on the Touch: "Authentication failed for <firstname.lastname@example.org>", even though I am following the fix they mention in this post from 2008 (select Yahoo! Mail (and not Other). Enter your Rogers.com email address and password). Is there another fix I should be using?
