    I am trying Postbox.
    I am having a problem getting messages to download to my IMAP accounts.
    I am on Rogers (Toronto) which uses Yahoo
    The POP3 account automatically retrieves messages every minute no problem
    I don't have this IMAP problem with the Mac Mail app.

    Settings are:
    Incoming Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 993
    Username: xxxxx@rogers.com
    Connection Security: SSL/TLS
    Authentication: Password
    Check for new messages every: 1 minute
    Use Idle Command if the server supports it

    Outgoing Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Port:465
    Connection Security: SSL/TLS
    Authentication: Password
    Username: xxxxx@rogers.com

    Any ideas?

    I always thought adding yahoo email through 3rd party email clients was only available for yahoo plus members. That's why I gave up on yahoo.

    Thanks for the info.

    I gave up and just switched to my Gmail accounts.
    They work fine in Postbox
