      Sky Yahoo Email and IMAP with Outlook 2010 - Nearly working for me but not quite....

      Hi all,

      Has anyone managed to get the 'New' Sky Yahoo mail working with IMAP and Outlook 2010 yet?
      I know it's not supposed to be officially supported, but lots of people have got Yahoo mail working with IMAP and desktop clients.

      I'm nearly there, all I've done so far is enter the yahoo imap mail settings into my mail setup;

      Incomming = imap.mail.yahoo.com - SSL Port 993
      Outgoing = smtp.mail.yahoo.com - SSL Port 465

      and the mailbox opens up fine, I can send and receive emails and all of my imap subfolders are displayed.

      However, in outlook, all of my IMAP subfolders are empty and whenever I try to move a mail into them I get the following error message

      Cannot move the items. The server responded: 'UID Copy Failed - No mailbox exists with name "Inbox.MyFolder" (where Inbox.Myfolder is on my of IMAP folders)

      Everything is working as expected on my iphone and via the web interface.....

      Anyone got any ideas?

      Cheers

      Macca

      Wait until the complete move has finished as Sky said it should all be completed with 24 hours so that should be around midnight tonight.

      Right I've got to the bottom of it

      The migration had prefixed all of my IMAP folders with 'Inbox.' (I'm guessing that this was in the Google mail label) so the my 'Sky' folder had migrated across as 'Inbox.Sky'

      All I've had to do to get full functionality restored in Outlook 2010, is to rename my folders so that the 'Inbox.' prefix is dropped and all is well.

      Hope this helps someone else

      Thanks
