Yahoo! Mail Data Monster Eating More Than WP7

"Yahoo! Mail's not having the best of times at the moment. It seems as though the IMAP data leak isn't limited to Windows Phone 7; Apple's iPhone is also seeing data racking up to 25 times more than it should."

Despite Yahoo's blaming the Yahoo! Mail data leak problems in WP7 on Microsoft's IMAP implementation, it appears that the same problem is affecting Apple's iPhones as well. So I guess it's Apple's fault too, huh? At the moment it seems that Android and Blackberry aren't seeing the extended email headers that iPhones and Window Phone 7s are receiving from Yahoo! Mail's servers, which means the data leak problem is "only" confined to these models so far. But just to be on the safe side, if you're using Yahoo! Mail take the time to switch to manual email sync - your wallet might thank you for it later.

Excess Data Usage: The Denouement

And the culprit is Yahoo Mail - their server is apparently sending 25 times more data than it should, thus hammering your bandwidth and battery life. Microsoft is recommending at the moment to switch from scheduled to manual updates (hit the Read link for a how-to) while they and Yahoo work on a fix, which should be rolled out soon. Has anybody with a Yahoo mail account seen this?
