From Bravura Software:
Yahoo IMAP Connector lets you access your Yahoo email using the IMAP protocol. Once you install this software, you can check your Yahoo email from your favorite desktop email program like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird. Are you tired of using a slow and clumsy web interface to check your Yahoo email? Are you tired of ads and slow loading speeds? Would you like to receive your Yahoo email in your favorite desktop email program, like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird? Well, now you can, with Yahoo IMAP Connector. Now, instead of having to manually check your Yahoo email in your browser, you can just sit back and watch your Yahoo email come straight to your inbox with Yahoo IMAP Connector. Finally, you can review your Yahoo email while travelling or offline. Also you can be notified when you get new email from your desktop software, instead of having to manually check it several times a day in your browser. Yahoo IMAP Connector provides an IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) interface to your Yahoo email account. All popular email clients like Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, or Mozilla Thunderbird support reading email using the IMAP protocol. Additionally, the IMAP protocol is designed for multiple 'clients' (e.g. your email program, cell phone, or web browser) to access your email account at the same time (unlike the older POP3 protocol), so you don't have to worry that your email program will download and delete your messages from the Yahoo server, leaving you only one copy. Your Yahoo email remains on the Yahoo server, accessible from both your web browser and your desktop email program.

Did not make any difference. Customer service never responded
Really wanted this program to work as it was my last attempt to get functional IMAP with my yahoo email on outlook (outlook 2007 on windows 7 64-bit) before dropping the email address. IMAP worked for years but then started getting errors and I have tried everything (maybe you are in the same position). I never saw any noticeable difference with the program installed. Contacted support for troubleshooting ideas but never got an answer. Uninstalled without a problem.
One note, after installing and seeing how it routes your email client through its program, I had serious questions about privacy. It seems like it would be easy for the program creators to steal your data. I am not an expert in this area, but I may have thought twice about trying this program if I realized that you have to set up outlook to push its login attempt through the program.
I was able to connect Outlook 2003 with my Yahoo email, and finally download all my messages. I can now send and receive messages directly from outlook, saving me valuable time, since I now have several email accounts in one place.
No cons at all
Excellent software, works very well, and is very reliable.
