Hi,

I am using YahooPops 0.4.6 on Windows XP Home SP1.

When I log in to Yahoo through YahooPops, the login
succeeds, but no email is downloaded. The dump of the
html page shows the following snippet -

[begin snip]

html>
<head><title>Yahoo! Mail</title></head>
<body alink=#0000ff vlink=#0000ff bgcolor=#ffffff
background=http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/pim/nfymbg2.gif>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
window.open("/ym/BetaSwitcher?YY=266747&switch=1&src=current&dest=beta",
"_top");
// -->
</script>

[end snip]

Apprently, Yahoo is employing Javascript to redirect me
to the Javascript version of the page and no email are
downloaded.

Can you suggest a workaround to this problem?

Rgds,
R

    I am submitting an update to previous message.

    Used Proxomitron to filter the page of Javascript. This
    time, the html page dump shows that YahooPops reached my
    inbox correctly, but the logs show the following -

    [begin snip]

    [end snip]

    YahooPops was set to download ALL email in inbox and folder
    abc and to delete Bulk Mail folder. Inbox has about 200
    messages and abc about 180 email. The Bulk email folder has
    about 20 email.

    No action was taken - no email downloaded and no Bulk email
    deleted.

    What is going on?

    It seems you haven't switched over from the old interface to
    the new one.

    I guess what you need to do is to first open a browser and
    switch to the new interface of Yahoo Mail before you start
    using YahooPOPs. To do this, you need to log into Yahoo Mail
    and click on the BetaSwitcher option that is presented to you.
