Well, I can't figure that one out. I corresponded with Yahoo! support over a month ago about free IMAP support.
Best reason to have IMAP is when in a location where no Internet service is available. You can write messages off line and read messages retrieved earlier.
Yahoo! was forwarding it to executive board for consideration ie to provide free IMAP service.
Not heard a word. Only problem I have is the pain in the butt to get all the emails forwarded to GMail or my old ATT accounts (which offer IMAP) and keep them sorted into all the folders.
From my perspective Yahoo! has Yahooed! themselves out of time.
I am making the painfully slow switch to ATT. Maybe Gmail too after I find out how difficult it is to move from them and if it is as easy as moving to them.

Wrong answer, your answer does not provide a solution, it does provides
a way to pay more money for the same service, since we do not need
additonal features of the plus opton. I still prefer to use Yahoo
through the web browser.
However, the POP Access is needed on occassion when out of town in
locations which have limited internet access to download to MacBook Pro
laptops and take to the hotel (which has no internet access) to read
during the evening, reply to them, and send them back through yahoo the
As an ATT customer, with firstname.lastname@example.org and
email@example.com, I deserve access to the yahoo account as
it is. I will not link yahoo accounts dalece, daleeshelman, and
dalece_biz to my sbcglobal because it cannot be undone.
It is your choice, provide the access or all accounts for myself, my
staff, and my family to prevent the account from being moved somewhere
Judging by yahoo's financial performance the past 3 years and their
stock price..which by the way I did own (I now own google)... yahoo
would be diligent to take their postion under consideration.
Its your choice, my position does not change.
