YPOPs!/Windows has been released.

Change Log:
# First in a series of quick releases to be made to fix broken elements of YPOPs!
+ A new protocol for downloading emails from Y! Mail Added
  -> IMAP is used internally to fetch from Y! Mail and this is converted back to POP3 format
  -> This will enable seamless switch between IMAP and SOAP in the next version
  -> SMTP and SOAP are broken in this release! Next release is to fix them!
  -> This is the first release with the IMAP<->POP3 support, hence feedback is required to ensure this works
  -> IMAP for sure might not be available for all user accounts. If it is not working for you, please try to switch your zone to Y! Asia in your Y! Profile.
- Progress Window has been removed. Hence configuration options for "Quiet mode" and "Always on Top" are not used any longer. From what I have gathered so far, Progress Window was one of the least used features. Also, this is required towards the step of making YPOPs! a Windows Service in a subsequent release

IMAP might not be enabled for all accounts! Switch your profile to Y! Asia if it fails at first!

Tests Performed:
1. Tested with 5 different accounts; some with Y! Asia as profile as some retained with US and UK profiles
2. IMAP worked for all; POP3 did not work for any!
3. Tested with email downloads with some accounts have in excess of 1000 emails. All retrieved successfully in single POP3 session.

1. If it does not work for you, please PM me. I will need to investigate further.

Next Steps:
1. SOAP protocol support. I am hoping to get this done by the end of the week. Will keep posting progress on a regular basis.
2. SMTP support. Once SOAP support has been completed, it will be time to take up this big challenge. Ypops coupon codes on Deals4Boomers.

YPOPs! is a free open source software that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Y! Mail. You can use your favourite email client, be it Outlook, Thunderbird, or whatever else you like and connect to Y! Mail seamlessly.

YPOPs! is an application that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Y! Mail.

How do we do it you ask?
Well, 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 Y! The same concept holds software good for SMTP as well.
