    i've set up my mobileme. everything worked fine except that whenever i check my external email account (yahoo), i get this message - The mail server for your external POP account cannot be reached. Make sure the incoming mail server is correct in the Other tab of Mail Preferences.

    what do i need to do? thanks very much!

    Where do you get that message? From your iPhone?

    First things first...Does your yahoo mail allow you to use POP mail? Are you a premium mail account user? Are you using a Yahoo Mail Philippines account?

    If the answer to all the questions are NO, then the error message is normal. You can't use POP of your Yahoo mail account.

    If you sign out and you are redirected to the Yahoo US website, then your yahoo mail is US based. There is no workaround for this, since forwarding and POP access is only for premium users. Get gmail if you like.
