Yahoo Plus IMAP Settings for Mac OS X Mail
Authored by: eastgirlie3 on Apr 12, '11 01:41:45PM

I, too, already had a Yahoo Plus POP account. I was able to successfully set up the IMAP, but should I now delete the POP? Is there a way to merge them? The POP has way more Yahoo messages in the inbox than the IMAP, so the IMAP must only be taking over what is currently on my server (I must've accidentally deleted original server messages when first creating the POP - so I need to save those messages!)

Warning : If you delete a POP account from Apple Mail it will delete all your email.
You should start uploading your mail from POP account into IMAP account. Do it bit by bit as it can bum out.
Once done i would backup your POP account ~/Library/Mail, then remove.
