    Yahoo! Mail Plus sync folders imap pop

    Hello

    RE: Yahoo! Mail Plus

    yahoomailplusquestion.jpg

    I am unable to contact Yahoo! to ask my question so am posting here.

    I have yahoo email. I have many folders other than the default 5 or so that come with a new yahoo email account.

    I am thinking of purchasing Yahoo! Mail Plus. But, I know I shouldn't since I can't determine how to contact them to ask about their own product. Contacting them when you're not a Yahoo! Mail Plus customer seems, so far to me, to be a farce. Anyway.

    I would like to know if anyone has experience with Yahoo! Mail Plus and can tell me if it will download all your email to an email program on your computer. I am interested in downloading more than the emails in my inbox. I would like Yahoo! Mail Plus to download all my folders containing emails as well.

    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    I'm familiar with their Archive feature which I used years ago. But, maybe they have something better now?

    Thank you for your time.

    use IMAP rather than POP3 in Thunderbird. It will show the actual folder structure online and download them if viewed. You do not even need a plus account to use IMAP. I use it. You would still need an account for outgoing SMTP mail.
    imap.mail.yahoo.com Use SSL/TLS; Port 993
