YPOPs!/Windows 0.9.7.3 – Works like a charm to send or receive your yahoo! email in Ms Outlook
YPOPs! is a free open source software that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Yahoo! Mail. You can use your favourite email client, be it Outlook, Thunderbird, or whatever else you like and connect to Yahoo! Mail seamlessly.
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! The same concept holds good for SMTP as well.
YPOPs!/Windows 0.9.7.3 : Download it!
1. Removed ALL third-party libraries (curl, openssl, …). IMAP<>POP3 does not rely on any of them. When we get to fixing SOAP and SMTP, I’ll reintroduce the correct libraries
2. The code has been run thru a Memory checker (Boundschecker) and a few memory corruptions have been fixed.
3. There is no need to install the VC++ 2008 redistributable files.
4. Fix for TOP
Before you use this Ypops! together with your email application, make sure the port for pop.mail.yahoo.com is 995 (SSL) and 465 for smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL). These ports are typed in both YPOPs! configuration and Ms. Outlook setting.
“Require logon using secure password authentication (SPA)” should be checked before the test message run for the first time.
