Download email from Yahoo Mail?

Nov 05 '12 at 17:34

Is it possible to use Chilkat Mail to download email from Yahoo mail? Can you give one example?


Email is downloaded from Yahoo just like any other POP3 or IMAP mail server. You only need to know the domain, port number, and whether SSL/TLS is required, and if so, whether it's explicit SSL/TLS or implicit. All of this information can be obtained from Yahoo!. It wouldn't make sense for Chilkat to publish the information, just in case it changes. To find the information, simply Google "yahoo imap" or "yahoo pop". You'll find all the information on Yahoo. For example:

Chilkat POP3 and IMAP examples on apply to any mail server, including Yahoo! Go to Navigate to your choice of programming language. Then navigate to either the POP3 or IMAP category to get a multitude of examples.
