    A friend of mine @sakyogi recommended something called Eclipse which I found too slow and sluggish. We worked in Pentium machines with a luxurios 32 MB RAM mostly and even then Eclipse was slow (Yahoo Mail offered 4 MB storage at that time).

  • Rootbrian_ The Rooty's Tweeties (@Rootbrian_) reported

    @YahooCare Later today, i'll be manually configuring yahoo mail for POP access like I did AOL last year and a half. Seems this problem cannot resolve itself. Imap is handy, but not without it's downsides (authentication being denied regardless what settings are used, eg. manual)

    Now i repent to have made all my company's buiness mail accounts on #Yahoo . I last 3 montsh , this is the 10th time that the whole yahoo mail is down. I am not been able to check my mails even. You suck #yahoo @YahooCare

  • SamuelP16578558 Samuel P (@SamuelP16578558) reported

    @YahooCare I suggest you simply require users to type their email/credentials before they can receive the SMS which contains the access code. This is because a new owner of an old phone number can access the Yahoo! mail of the PREVIOUS OWNER of that number. Fix this please.
