Yahoo vs. new phone

So I got a new phone.

And on receiving it, I found that Yahoo! Mail was available on the phone via the built in wizard.

On trying to log in, I found that Yahoo! Mail as a service option was set to PoP3 as the default, and wouldn't reflect message deletions on the server, which was, honestly, pretty maddening.

I mean really - this seems like a mature technology feature that should be enabled, fully mature, and available from a vendor as large and complex as the Yahooligan crew.

So, I was poking around for answers, and realized to get Yahoo! Mail on my Android as IMAP was going to be the answer, and that was as simple as pushing "manual setup".

Here's a URL:
