I was having trouble receiving e-mail from Yahoo Mail Pro with MailWasher Pro although I could receive it if I just went to Yahoo. I tried some good suggestions from others but they didn't help. I was scrolling through the Forums looking for related subjects and found your post. I tried your suggestion and MailWasher Pro has worked properly the two times I have tried it since I made the change. Thank you for your post.
