[REBOL] Re: POP and SMTP servers for yahoo accounts?

From: dvydra2:yaho:o at: 27-Aug-2001 22:57

I am on a trip to Russia and I configured my Eudora to POP into yahoo but it started downloading messages starting with the oldest one. Without my DSL connection it proved quite annoying. Is there somethig in POP to force it to download the latest mail first? Regards, David ps but the most challenging part was remembering how to configure the modem to dial pulse :) --- Steve Shireman <[steve--shireman--semaxwireless--com]> wrote:
