    So I've been a long time yahoo mail user, I tried Gmail for a while but found Yahoo easier to use not to mention its UI looks much better. Gmail's UI compared to Yahoo's UI looks like something that hasn't been finished or something. Yahoo's UI just looks more polished (am I the only one who likes yahoo better than gmail?) , anyways, the only advantage I found to Gmail was the free IMAP access (you have to pay for POP access on yahoo).

    Searching around on the web for ways to have free POP access with yahoo mail, I found a software solution from a company called Zimbra http://www.zimbra.com/products/desktop.html (Owned by Yahoo). It's a mail application that lets you access your free yahoo account(s) from your desktop. You can also add other POP (or IMAP) enabled accounts (AOL, hotmail, Gmail, Outlook accounts, etc).

    I hadn't heard of this company before, but apparently they've been out for a while before Yahoo bought them out. And According to this article http://news.cnet.com/8301-13505_3-10190071-16.html they also appear to be have more mailboxes than Gmail (40 million vs 31.2 million mailboxes).

    I just downloaded the application on my mac and I've been playing around with it. I was wondering if anyone has had positive or negative experiences with this application. Good enough to replace the other mail apps?

    Here's a demo in case anyone is interested http://www.zimbra.com/demos/zimbra_tour/
