Wouldn't Yahoo, Ymail and Rocketmail be the best place to find an answer
to that question?
Is Yahoo, Ymail, Rocketmail access (I am talking about the free access,
not paid) still restricted using IMAP.
I was using Zimbra and it works fine.
Just installed a new system and was wondering if Yahoo made IMAP
accessible to all the clients like Evolution and Thunderbird.
Or is my only option Zimbra? I don't mind using it but would like to�
use evolution if possible. It integrates will with the desktop
For Yahoo the answer is yes, and no. Yahoo provide IMAP access but try
and restrict it to mobile devices that won't run their Zimbra client.
You'll have to make your MUA spoof a mobile device id - and you'll be on
imap.mail.yahoo.com; SSL – port 993
For the others you're going have to do the work yourself, or get someone
else to do if for you. (sigh)

maybe, but you know what, after the first 3 largest armies, there's a
REAL big [beep] drop-off. The Hare Krishnas are the 5th largest army in
the world, and they've already got all our airports.
