Yahoo! Mail Comments

Advantages: 500 Disposable Adresses, free UNLIMITED Storage

Comment by em4020
about Yahoo! Mail and Microsoft Office Outlook, AOL Mail Jun 2011

Advantages of Yahoo! Mail:

  • 500 Disposable Adresses, free UNLIMITED Storage space:
    The main advantage of Yahoo-Mail are the max. 500 "Disposable E-Mail-Addresses", which you can change or create very easy, if you are flooded with Spam-Mails, or if you want to avoid the danger to be flooded for certain purposes.
  • Unfortunatelly no direct link for very rapid editing these flexible Mail-Addresses:

Disadvantages of Yahoo! Mail:

  • No IMAP,
  • sending away from "Disposable Address" only from Web-Interface,
  • no POP3-access via email client:
    Sending away from an Yahoo-"Disposable Address" is only possible from Yahoo-Mail Web-Interface, not from Mozilla Thunderbird.
    The ability to access Yahoo! Mail via a POP3 email client (such as Outlook or Outlook Express) is only available to customers of the premium Yahoo! Mail Plus service ( $19.99 per year).
    If you have not purchased the Yahoo! Mail Plus service, you will be unable to retrieve messages via an email client:,
  • Yahoo! Mail as well as Yahoo! Mail Plus do not support IMAP access from other Mail-Clients: .
  • The only Free-Mail service with UNLIMITED storage AND POP3- AND IMAP support seems to be AOL-Mail.
