How to retrieve Yahoo Mail using email programs such as Microsoft Outlook, Eudora, Outlook Express, etc
If you are using Yahoo mail and plan to retrieve your messages using email programs such as Microsoft Outlook, Eudora, Outlook Express, etc, you might be a bit disappointed. Yahoo only allows customers of its Yahoo Mail Plus service to download their email via POP3.
you can still use your favorite email program to retrieve your Yahoo mail if you seek help from YPOPs, a free and open-source program which can translate webmail on-the-fly to the POP3 format.
Technically, YPOPs acts as a gateway that provides a POP3 server interface at oÂ¬ne end to talk to email clients and an HTTP client (browser) interface at the other which allows it to talk to Yahoo! In brief, instead of connecting directly to Yahoo, your email program connects to YPOPs, which in turn logs on to your Yahoo Mail account without launching a web browser. It also reads your mailbox and transfers the contents to POP3 mail.
