    Is there anyway to sync the Mac Mail app and Yahoo! SBC Global server with each other? Like on the iPad, you can move files and such, and it syncs with the server. Can I do the same with my imac?

    Mail trouble

    :eek:I have the same problem, and went to a genius bar for solution, but:
    It seems that you have to get the premium service ($$$) from yahoo to make it work...:mad:
    Hotmail inbox works, but I cannot see my previous folders created inside hotmail... looks like need a premium service too...:mad:
    The genius mentioned that Gmail is the only free mail that let you have all configs inside Mail...;)
    Crazy! Yahoo works like a charm on iPhone and hotmail crashes. Looks like Gmail is the only that works for iPhone and Mail on Mac, although I see several posts flying around searching for help.

    You only need premium if you have the @yahoo extension.

    With @sbcglobal.net you get the Yahoo! Plus features included.

    So...any ideas now?
