Yahoo Mail's IMAP Bug Is Finally Fixed

Posted by Richard Chao in "Windows Phone Software" @ 05:48 PM

"To quickly summarize, whenever a smartphone checked for new Yahoo mail, the server would transmit more information than needed. While not a huge problem on desktops connected to broadband, it was huge in the mobile space - a space in which carriers snipe bandwidth hogs and users oblivious to their data usage and monthly allowances."

It looks like Yahoo has finally made some changes in the way its servers communicate with handsets when polled for mail. Instead of sending back the entire message header as before, thereby causing users to use more data than necessary, the servers now only send back the requested information when polled. This is good news for Yahoo Mail users especially since most carriers are doing their best to phase out unlimited data for one to two GB plans.

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?
