    I think it is documented problems with free ymail/yahoo/IMAP outside of using the browser.


    note that using IMAP on a desktop client IS NOT recommended by Yahoo! nor supported by the Mail team. This would explain the lack of push notifications and shows that the implementation of the protocol has not been fully made.



    There is the paid version-  which is what they are trying to steer you towards?

    Thanks. This all came about becuse a Ymail account was required to join a Group. Interesting I was not solicited to upgrade to a Yahoo plus account. Push is implemented in iOS on my iPhone. Thanks for the heads up.
