The best way to view and send your Yahoo e-mail from your Droid is to set up Droid's e-mail client for IMAP e-mail access.

Choose "manual setup" so that you can select "IMAP" versus "POP3" for incoming mail server.

Make sure to select "Require sign-in" on the outgoing server settings otherwise when you send e-mail, it won't actually get sent. It will get stuck in the outgoing mail server. Then when you correct the error, all of the old messages will get sent at once.
