under outgoing server, the first box is checked. and use same settings as my incoming server. click advance, use port 995 and check the box, for ssl connection. second port is 465, and select ssl encryption.

It's just pop.mail.yahoo.com


I setup exactly as described, but still it does not work.

I have outlook 2007 and Vista business

Hi Everyone,
I followed the directions above to use Asia and when I try to sign in using incredimail i get an error stating "popgate unknown command". I have checked to make sure everything is as your telling us and still getting the error. I tried using ypop also but incredimail wouldn't set up my yahoo account using it either.
Thanks
kisezz

My Yahoo SMTP & POP access was working fine for last few weeks and today just few mins back it stopped working. I am not able to login at mail.yahoo.com as well. Probably a server error on yahoo. But I was wondering if anybody else seen similar issues?

Yahoo has recently negated the Asia 'work around' highlighted above. The process no longer works.

As of a few moments ago my Yahoo/Asia is still working. Now, for several weeks Yahoo has been pestering me to complete new security questions via a pop-up which I've been ignoring and just worked around. I'm wondering if there's any connection.

So far, mine is still working... However, after I did the Asia trick, I switched my prefer content back to US...Another strange thing I just noticed I recently re-installed MS Office 2007 Enterprise.. When configuring outlook, all I had to do was provide username and password for Yahoo, and the client configured everything else...The only significant change is that my ports are 110 for incoming.. And 25 for outgoing... Other then that, all is well...

Once you changed the content to Asia, You saved it? Then signed into Yahoo mail, and saw a tab for pop access, and set that up? Now once you goto outlok, instead of manually setting it up, let the client configure it automatically... See if that works for you.... Worse case scenario, if this ever stops working, I will just use my own ISP to send mail and use Freepops to receive.. If the program still exists...

Is Yahoo Discriminating against their US users?

Postby satovey on August 1st, 2009, 6:42 pm

Thanks for the information on using yahoo asia to access free pop.
It may interest US yahoo users that Yahoo has reduced the functionality
of yahoo.com to US users.

In classic yahoo, when you clicked the mail tab to go to the main mail
page, Yahoo classic would list a summary of folders with unread messages.
A few days ago, around July 27th 2009, Yahoo removed that functionality
from US free accounts using Yahoo Classic.

That functionality made using Yahoo very efficient as you did not have
to find the folders yourself.

This functionality is still available and working in Yahoo asia.

The following is an excerpt of the email I received from Yahoo Customer service.

Hello Scott,

Thank you for contacting Yahoo! Mail Customer Care.

I understand you would like to see a summary of your custom folders with
unread emails at the top of your Yahoo! Mail welcome page.

I'm sorry, but the feature or functionality that you're describing is no
longer available. However, our Engineering and Marketing teams want to
hear from you about what you would like to see enhanced in Yahoo! Mail.
The best way to send us your input is clicking on one of the following
two links and completing the short survey.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The removal of this functionality has prompted me to start looking for
an different email provider. It appears to me that Yahoo is discriminating
against it's US users.

While other regions receive free pop access, North America does not.
While other regions are still provided the more efficient and useful
summary folders, North American users do not.

Thanks again for the pop access information.
I was able to download the over 9000 messages
I had stored on Yahoo to my system.

Now I am no longer locked into Yahoo.

Thanks again for the information.

Scott

Thanks for posting what we already knew. Probably just a matter of time until Yahoo slams the door on Yahoo Asia for US users. Geez!

Tried it again today, and voila ... with 2 accounts it now works. HAve 2 more accounts to set up, and want to test it with a new account. Only thing is ..... the option in Ypops, regarding saving a sent message on the Yahoo server, seems to not work ... at least for me.

If anyone figures out a way to get this option working, would appreciate it.

Relax. That's not discrimination. That's business. When you make changes, you have to start somewhere. New accounts in Asia don't get POP service either. The accounts on the older servers do, but the newer servers are blocking it.

JUST set up a 'new account', and everything works OK. You must use a foreign country Yahoo ... as in "yahoo.in' ... for India. Others 'may' work ... I just chose India as my test country.

Had no problem once set up to initiate the forwarding and/or POP3 options.

Did you set up the new account IN India or did you set up the new account here and THEN try to get pop access FROM India? That might make a difference.

EDIT: I see from your other post that you set up the new account IN India, which in all likelihood will be on different servers than if you had set it up here like everyone else. My guess is that you can set up a new account IN Asia and get the same result, but you can't set one up here and then try to get POP access in either of those countries. I don't have time to test the theory, but if you do, please post the results.

And by the way, you are correct that my statement is incorrect. My statement was incomplete given the above scenarios. However and whatever the case may be, it's still not discrimination. It's business, pure and simple.
