'[OT] Free POP3 and SMT type service on yahoo'

Yahoo removed POP3 / SMTP access to their free accounts in 2002.

This sourceforge program provides the equivalent of POP3 and SMTP
email access to free Yahoo accounts by simulating a web browser to
Yahoo and a POP3 server to your POP3 email client

       http://yahoopops.sourceforge.net/

They say

   This application emulates a POP3 server and enables popular email
clients like Outlook, Netscape, Eudora, Mozilla, etc., to download
email from Yahoo! accounts. We do not go against the license
agreements of Yahoo! Mail. This application is completely legitimate
and well within the realms of legal software.
_____________________

Note that although this program is legal and arguably ethical Yahoo
would probably become 'annoyed' if all their clients used such
programs. An easier solution is to change to a free email service with
a better web interface, POP3 access and greater storage capacity :-).

Hi,
       Is that so? My POP3/SMTP yahoo access seems to still be working.
Unless that only applies to new accts?

Are you sure you don't have a Yahoo! Mail /Plus/ account?

Compare http://us.info.mail.yahoo.com/ (Yahoo! Mail - free) with
http://mailplus.mail.yahoo.com/ (Yahoo! Mail Plus - not free) and search
for POP3. Only for Yahoo! Mail Plus they list POP3 access as a feature. I'd
think they'd list it for the free account also if they provided it.

If you do have a free account, and POP3 works, why don't you post the
access data (servers, ports if not standard, how the login is derived from
the email address, whether the SMTP server requires a login, ...), so that
others can try it?

Maybe Yahoo Singapore forget to turn off the POP/SMTP access. ;-)

Take note Daniel has a yahoo.com.sg account, not a yahoo.com
account.

Actually,
       All you need to do is to sign up for a yahoo deliver. This
entitles you to POP3/SMTP access.

Well,
       Its pop.mail.yahoo.com.sg and smtp.mail.yahoo.com.sg for me.
Note that I'm on yahoo.com.sg though. And on the web interface I
actually signed up for a yahoo deliver which entitles me to this
service.
