Yahoo! adds IMAP supports to Small Business email.

September 21, 2011

I posted a rant on my personal WordPress page on Tuesday about staying away from POP-Mail. Having to deal with a client with 14,000 emails on his Yahoo! Small Business email, I was planning to move their email services to Google Apps.

To my surprise, Yahoo Small Biz Team (@YSmallBizCare) commented on my rant.

Hi, sorry to hear you’ve had trouble with your Yahoo! services.

We thought you might like to know that due to recent upgrades, Yahoo!’s New Small Business Mail now supports IMAP configuration.

Please contact us anytime at http://smallbusiness.yahoo.com/contactus for assistance getting this setup.

That certainly solved the one problem I was dealing with for the past few days. I immediately added the IMAP settings (imap.mail.yahoo.com Port 993 with SSL) for the client.

If you are using Yahoo! Small Business Mail, you really wants to read this help page.

Thank You, Yahoo Small Biz Team.

    I was very happy to see this as well. Now I am wondering how you deal with meeting invitations sent from outlook. They come to me in “ics” format which I can open on my iphone to view, but I can’t easily accept the invite with my Yahoo SmallBiz email

    Is there a way to do this or do I need to go to Google Apps so I can sync with iphone via exchange.
