    Hey guys,
    So I've just purchased Yahoo! Mail Plus ($19.99 per year) and connected it to my Mail application on my laptop. Here is my issue:
    Why doesn't the application communicate with my Yahoo account the same way as my iPhone? What I mean is.. let's say I deleted an e-mail on my laptop (on the Mail application). Why is this deletion not reflected on my real Yahoo web-mail account? Also, when I send e-mails from the Mail application, it doesn't show up in "Sent" on my Yahoo web mail application. Had I done any of the above on my iPhone, it obviously is stored also on Yahoos server.

    Do you guys get what I'm saying? Can this be solved? Thanks in advance!

    I think, but am not sure, that Yahoo setup via email client on a computer is POP configuration only. To have everything "sync" it would have to be set up as IMAP, which neither Yahoo free/paid support...

    Can anyone confirm this? or offer a different solution?

    After much looking, I think it's safe to say so; Yahoo! does not currently offer IMAP for desktop email. However, IzyMail seems to get around that.
