Problem with Yahoo Plus

I subscribed to get POP access, but found that it only downloads the Inbox, not the entire set of emails. That's pretty much useless as far as I'm concerned, since most of my emails have been stored in different folders.

I'm going to have to forward the main emails to google and then download. 

I need IMAP not POP.

Note: I've saved a few inbox files in Eudora (under thunderbird). Basically this $20 was wasted.

Effectively, by not providing a default feature for POP and IMAP, yahoo is far less useful as a permanent email system than gmail.

I'm using my yahoo account less and less. As far as banks are concerned, I'm moving to gmail.

Gmail is also FAR MORE SECURE with a 2 step login.
