YPOPs! is an application that provides POP3 access to Yahoo! Mail. It is available on the Windows, Linux, Solaris and Mac platforms.
Yahoo! Mail disabled free access to its POP3 service on 24th April, 2002. 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.
How do we do it you ask? Well, this application is more like a gateway. It provides a POP3 server interface at one end to talk to email clients and an HTTP client (browser) interface at the other which allows it to talk to Yahoo!
Another usefull tool which let you access your yahoo email address using your favorite email program without paying yahoo for their subscription services first, to activate your pop email ;) but if you’re using Thunderbird email client program like me you can always use Webmail Extension for Thunderbird instead of using YPops! to simplify things (and this extension also support alot of Web Based Mail Account)
