I have a yahoo premium account which allows pop access using outlook express etc I know people who have just ordinary yahoo accounts who cannot access using pop More out of curiosity than anything I was wondering how this was done? (i.e the blocking on non-premium pop access)

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The premium accounts are listed as using the POP port as well as the HTTP port (normal access). They simply don’t allow access to non-premium accounts through the POP listener.

    If there is a Yahoo email admin monitoring this list, s/he might know exactly how this is accomplished and might let us know in a general way. How we do it, running Microsoft Exchange 2003, is by disabling POP mailbox access for the individual user. This is a configuration option in the mailbox setup in the Exchange System Manager. Other mailservers accomplish this through their internal configuration (as opposed to an external method). I SUSPECT Yahoo does it by enabling POP access for Premium users, and allowing WEB access / denying POP access for standard users. Were you looking for a more detailed desciption, or just wondering which device or service generates the capability?
