    Default Setup Yahoo business email account

    I have been trying to setup ZDsktop to retrieve email from my Yahoo business email account , but have been unsuccessful so far. The Yahoo account type option is not workable since it defaults to a yahoo.com email id. Business email provided by yahoo has a different domain. If I try to setup the account a generic POP account, the setup fails because it recognizes the pop server (pop.bizmail.yahoo.com) as a yahoo.com domain server and hence forces me to change it to IMAP access. IMAP setup just returns a response of "+OK hello from popgate 2.38.7 on pop100.biz.mail.mud.yahoo.com" and the profile never gets saved. Any recommendations on how to use the ZDesktop client with a yahoo business email account.

    Default Any update?

    The last post was from April 08.

    Has there been any update on the support of Yahoo! Business Mail accounts since then?

    When I use name@mydomain.com in the "Yahoo Mail Account" setup, I actually get the mail from the name2@yahoo.com account that is associated with my Business Mail account.

    we have fixed the issue on our side, but there's a bizmail related authentication issue that's affecting all imap clients including iphones. that issue is being investigated by the yahoo mail server team.

    Any updates on this issue?

    I would really like to use Zimbra's external accounts to pull mail from my yahoo small business account that uses the server pop.bizmail.yahoo.com

    I have been able to get my Yahoo Small business email (name@mydomain.com) to pull my emails stored in my inbox using the settings from Other Email Clients - Yahoo! Small Business Help

    I have not been able to get it to pull my other yahoo folders however. I am still working on this.

    Did you have any luck with this? Do you have an update? I am in a similar boat.

    Not sure about Zimbra (abandoned it for now) but I can get Thunderbird to pull my Yahoo Small business emails, inbox and all my other folders, using the IMAP settings from IMAP Settings - Yahoo! Small Business Help
    Good luck everybody!
