    Hi there. I got my second PB today (last one I had was sold because I was in a rough spot and I needed the money to not starve). I got it as an early (very early, it was supposed to be given to me on july 12 (my birthday) but it had the dreaded flat dead battery problem plus a warped usb connector pins problem that I both fixed and since my mom had me fix it, she figured it wouldn't be a surprise anymore and gave it to me today) birthday gift. It's working pretty great and I still like it, but I have a problem right now, I've been connecting my various accounts on it, hotmail, twitter, yahoo mail canada, etc. But somehow when I try to add my yahoo mail japan account (it's my main email account, the other twos are just around because I've had them since forever and too many forum/website accounts are tied to both of them), it keeps telling me "The server smtp.mail.yahoo.co.jp for your account (Yahoo! Japan - kitanosammy@yahoo.co.jp) is not responding. Please check your settings and try again.". I tried everything I could think of but it still isn't working. Could anyone here help me?

    the current settings are:

    Description: Yahoo! Japan
    Display name: (blank)
    Username: kitanosammy@yahoo.co.jp
    Email Address: kitanosammy@yahoo.co.jp
    Password: *super secret password*

    Server Address: imap.mail.yahoo.co.jp
    Port: 993
    Encryption: SSL
    IMAP Path Prefix: (blank)

    SMTP Username: kitanosammy@yahoo.co.jp
    SMTP Password: *super secret password*

    SMTP Server Address: smtp.mail.yahoo.co.jp
    SMTP Port: 465
    SMTP Encryption: SSL

    Use push if supported: ON
    Sync Interval: 15 Minutes
    Initial Retrieval Amount: 7 Days

    Since the email app is not working you at least have access to your mail. You could set it up for automatic launching from your desktop. Sometimes you will even bave more mail functions available this way.

    I had this issue a few weeks ago. I did not do anything different. A few days later, it just allow me to reconnect again. Maybe it's Yahoo issue as well.

    You could try using android Email, which is already on your Playbook and which will give you notifications of new mail.

    It's not in your icons. You need another app to access it. There are a number of apps that will let you do this, probably the easiest to use is Quick App Manager, free in app world.
