There's a lot of talk recently about how Yahoo(?!) is allegedly trying to improve, and getting in new managers, and improving processes, and bla bla bla.
Now, for some obscure reason, the iPhone can do push email from Yahoo Mail accounts, but not Google or anyone else free. I thought it would be quite nice to have an email account where urgent things could go, that would update my phone RIGHT NOW, but I'm damned if I'm paying $99 a year for MobileMe, and the less said about Exchange the better. So, I signed up for a Yahoo account. And gave it my normal gmail email as a secondary address. I duly went to confirm this address, and got this:
Now, if a website I made, on my own, did something stupid like this, I would be embarrassed, and would quickly fix it. Apparently Yahoo, with its thousands of employees, feels no such shame about giving stupid bloody error messages like this. By the way, I did 'Sign Out & Continue', and got exactly the same message.
By the way, after all that trouble, Yahoo push to iPhone does not actually appear to work. Grr.
