YAHOO MAIL


[link to this post]
 
For reasons linked to running YAHOO Groups I would like to continue with a YAHOO MAIL account.
YAHOO are pushing users onto a new Mail version and one of the options given below [ IMAP ] may be suitable.
Needless to say the link they give to 'Instructions .. for using IMAP ' does not work.

Is it possible to use Apple Mail 1.2.5 (v553) to access the new YAHOO Mail via IMAP?

QUOTE
If you donít want to use the new Yahoo! Mail, you may consider these other options:

* Download your Yahoo! Mail using IMAP: IMAP allows you to access your email from a different email program, such as Outlook, Mac Mail, or your mobile deviceís application. You can download your data to your personal computer or device using an IMAP program. However, in order to continue using Yahoo! Mail you will need to accept the Communications Terms of Service. See instructions for accessing Yahoo! Mail using IMAP.
* Close your account:
END QUOTE.

Are you talking here about BT Yahoo a/c's?

I have Yahoo (not BT) email a/c's which I read via POP3 and they're not pushing me.

Any mail client worth its salt (except Win8 LOL!) can access Yahoo mailboxes using either POP3 or IMAP.

For IMAP settings see: http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&y=PROD_M...

I believe Win8 can use IMAP.

But not POP3 out of the box you need to go and get a third party mail client.

MS just has a rude message when you try and configure POP3 on win8.

Apple Mail 1.2.5
That's a really old version.

I use Win 7 and Outlook 2010 for my Yahoo Mail and like XRaySpeX I have not been pushed onto a new Yahoo Mail version.
I use POP3 with the following settings without any problems;
The usual Your Name, E-mail address
POP3
pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk
smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk
User Name your email address without @yahoo.co.uk
Password xxxxxxx
More Settings General tab whatever you name your account
Outgoing server tab My outgoing serve (SMTP) requires authentication
Use same settings as my incoming server
Connection tab Use Connect using my LAN
Advanced tab Incoming server (POP3): 995
This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)
Outgoing server (SMTP): 25
Use the following type of encrypted connection None
Leave a copy of messages on the server
