Re: [Thunderbird] Trying to connect Thunderbird to Yahoo mail

Interesting. There's a non-Asian alternative for some accounts: While setting up POP Peeper for checking a free Yahoo account, I noticed optional IMAP settings. The settings worked for me in Thunderbird too -- although they say IMAP may not work for all accounts.

Incoming: imap.mail.yahoo.com, port 993, SSL
Outgoing: smtp.mail.yahoo.com, port 465, SSL
I had to change the "Sent" folder in Copies & Folders.

I found that GMX mail could get your Yahoo mail. So I transferred all Yahoo stuff over. Thunderbird does do GMX, so I could store some of the messages I wanted to keep on my own computer. Since I cleaned Yahoo out, I just forward the piece of mail to GMX.
