I've seen this now twice today...
YahooPOPs is hanging on certain emails in my Yahoo
Inbox. The common factor that I've noticed about the
emails that cause YahooPOPs to fail is the presence of
a "View Contact Details" link in the "From:" field of
the header when the message is displayed in Yahoo's web
client. This link appears if the sender is in my
The reason I believe this link is causing YahooPOPs to
fail is that I started with 8 mails in my Inbox, but
the RETR 3 command consistently hung, indicating that
the third message in the Inbox was the one that was
hanging. When I moved that message to another folder
and tried again, it moved past that point in the list,
only to hang on the next message that also contained
that link. I moved that one also, and now YahooPOPs
retrieves the entire Inbox successfully.
I tried cleaning out all temporary folders, etc.
several times, but that did not make any difference.
Has Yahoo changed this link recently, and is that
change causing YahooPOPs to fail?
Contact me if you need further info.
