This Post is completely dedicated to those who havent succeded in configuring webmail for the same
which is described here..So we use Ypops(as an alternative) as it acts as a Yahoo server,and gets messages from Yahoo.
use the PGP public key: kranny.gpg. Save this to a file (say kranny.gpg). And then use the following command to add the key:
root@kranny-desktop:$ sudo apt-key add kranny.gpg
Add the following line to the bottom of your /etc/apt/sources.list file:
deb http://tskariah.000webhost.com/ubuntu ubuntu main
now its time for a update
root@kranny-desktop:$ sudo apt-get update
root@kranny-desktop:$ sudo apt-get install ypops
Now configure Ypops with ur yahoo account details.type in the command
root@kranny-desktop:$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -fgnome ypops
now enter basic information like Max no of emails,yahoo domain,connection timeout etc
and dont check connect to net via http proxy server and enable proxy authentication…
Important:put the bind address as 127.0.0.1 and POP3 port no as 5110…Enable SMTP and its port must be 5025 and the rest inf u can give…now its time to reflect the ports inf in thunderbird
