  1. Harpoon says:

    One small correction to the YPOPs instructions:

    This line
    $ sudo apt-key add tskariah.gpg

    Should be
    sudo apt-key add t_skariah.asc.gpg

    For new users that get a file not found error.

    Hi,
    Thanks I could configure the same in TB and Evolution. I am able to fetch mails, but unable to send mails using the smtp, every time i send, am asked for the authentication again and again, i enter the one for my account but am rejected everytime.

    Any ideas?

    Yahoo does offer free POP access if you change a setting. It worked for me and it is described here:

    http://picobit.wordpress.com/2009/04/10/yahoo-mail-free-pop-access/

    No need for YPOPS anymore :)

    This has been out of action for a while. He does not appear to be maintaining his work. The repository also has a file with an error which stops apt-gt update from finishing.

    W: Failed to fetch http://tskariah.000webhost.com/ubuntu/dists/ubuntu/main/binary-i386/Packages.bz2 Sub-process bzip2 returned an error code (2)

    Happens on both of his repo’s.
    I guess we will have to wait for a different solution to yahoo + thunderbird stuff.
