How can I best set up Yahoo Mail with Microsoft Exchange on the iPhone to push messages quickly?

Rich May 19, 2012

Does anyone know how to set up a Yahoo Mail account through Microsoft Exchange on the iPhone? Trying to set it up for my aunt, as Exchange is supposed to be able to push quickly. Setting it up through Yahoo on the phone doesn’t work very good. It sometimes takes hours to push.

    Yahoo! does not offer the feature to connect to Yahoo! Mail via the Exchange option on the iPhone. The only option you have is to use the route provided: set-up a Yahoo! Mail account which uses IMAP. IMAP is supposed to notify that a new email message has arrived. CNET has some suggestions in the article below, though it is a bit dated.

    There are two steps involved in this process.

    1) How to Connect Yahoo! to the Microsoft Exchange Server -

    2) Set Up Microsoft Exchange E-Mail on an Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch -

    Well, No. This can't be done the way you want it.

    You would literally be taking Yahoo out of the picture... You would need a server, a static ip from your ISP, and a domain (because the address only works on yahoo servers), and licensed copy of Exchange. And that is just the basics, All in all expensive...
