    Until recently I've been checking Yahoo mail over the web. I just noticed that Yahoo lets me do pop access for free (my DSL account probably).

    The sync is extremely slow, it takes minutes to pull a single message. I've seen another post about this a long time ago. Has anyone figured this out? I don't have other pop accounts to try it with.

    Thanks.

    I have my dsl through Yahoo (SBC/AT&T) as well. I used to use pop, and it did take a long time (especially large messages & attachments). However, I've since switched to IMAP, and it is MUCH faster. Do a search for "Yahoo IMAP" and you should find the settings. Another good thing is that you can send/receive in the background while doing other things.

    I was able to connect using imap.mail.yahoo.com and specified to pull only 1 day mail, but Versamail runs out of memory. This didn't happen with pop access.

    Yup, that's the setting I have (outgoing is "smtp.mail.yahoo.com"). I have mine set to "Get only: unread messages; Mail from last 3 days" and don't have that problem. Maybe someone else will chime in? All I can say is that if you can do the switch from POP to IMAP, you'll notice the speed difference (Yahoo isn't really advertising the IMAP option, but it works for those that use it).
