If you are one of the many users plagued by Yahoo Mail
and its recent issues, it looks like your troubles may be over
. Yahoo has decided to pull the plug on various anti-spam and security enhancements they recently added to the service, as it was discovered they were the culprit behind many users not being able to retrieve POP email.
Considering that POP mail through Yahoo is a paid service, this understandably made a lot of people upset. While the company intended to add value by incorporating these newer features, it seems their technical staff was unable to find a solution for the problems they caused aside from rolling back. As a result, the upgraded SSL and anti-spam functionality are gone at least for now, and the POP service should be back to normal. Unfortunately for those who have accounts configured to require SSL, those will no longer work.
