Yahoo Mail finally fixes IMAP data bug

A while back, Yahoo! was pegged as the culprit behind some users' mysterious mobile data consumption. The problem, of course, was with Yahoo's IMAP support. While there was initially some deflection going on, Yahoo! has now stepped up and delivered a fix which stems the tide of those nefarious and wanton packets.

As reported at Within Windows, Yahoo! updated its IMAP servers and mail is now flowing without the unwanted excess. We geeky types tend to chuckle a bit at Yahoo!-related news sometimes, but as one of the world's biggest email providers this is a very important fix -- and we're glad Yahoo! finally made the necessary changes.
