The setup described here enables you to store all your email (and email for other people) on a single machine, which might be a home server, a remotely hosted server, or even a desktop, and then access it from anywhere.
YPOPs! is an application that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Yahoo! Mail. This application is more like a gateway. It provides a POP3 server interface at one end to talk to email clients and an HTTP client (browser) interface at the other which allows it to talk to Yahoo! The same concept holds good for SMTP as well.It works with all know email clients like Outlook, Thunderbird, Evolution, Eudora etc.
Mozilla thunderbird stores your email and profile setting in a special directory called ~/.mozilla-thunderbird i.e. /home/you/.mozilla-thunderbird/. All you have to do is backup this directory.
If you've switched from Yahoo! over to Gmail because you prefer to read your email in a desktop client such as Thunderbird, you probably are wondering how you can do the same thing with Yahoo! for free.
A few days ago I was looking for a guide to export my mail and settings (my accounts, address book, calendar, filters, etc.) to my laptop and I found a few guides. I wondered why, as far as I know, there is no way to export my data in Evolution (my favourite email client)…
One of those niggling little things that I always mean to change in my Ubuntu installs but never really get around to it is the default mail client.
