Isn't there some other service that could let me access my Yahoo account?

Yeah, it doesn't look that way.PhoenixEnigma wrote:On the other hand, as long as GMail pulls the messages non-destructively
Interesting. http://www.google.com/Top/Computers/Int ... P3_Access/ turns up http://www.netmymail.com/v3/, which does claim to access Yahoo directly. But is it reliable?PhoenixEnigma wrote:If GMail can import your Yahoo messages, you can then use pretty much whatever POP3 (or IMAP, I believe) client you'd like to view them from there. A quick Googling shows up several web based POP3 clients as well, if that's what floats your boat.
james@test:~$ apt-cache search yahoo mail
fetchyahoo - Retrieve mail from Yahoo!'s webmail service
htdig - WWW search system for an intranet or small internet
yahoo2mbox - Retrieve and store Yahoo! Groups messages
Isn't it the other way around? Most POP3 clients I've seen at least provide the option of leaving messages on the server, but I had the impression that the whole point to IMAP was that the client would do its darndest to make sure that the local copy reflects the server copy and vice versa.headprogrammingczar wrote:POP3 is always destructive, but GMail does IMAP too

And does this POP3 access work with other POP3-capable web clients, including GMail?
But I'm thinking of ponying up the $20 for POP3 access, for two reasons.
Yes, no doubt. But surely some are better than others? (One of ePrompter's major failings was the lack of SSL support.)Kaelri wrote:I found loads of generic POP3 mail checkers.
