Demise of Yahoo app

Hi,

 Apologises if this has been asked before but I've  just joined here.  I had cause to change my password recently and had to login to Yahoo who said they were no longer taking doing things with their app.  So my first question is......Is BT developing their own app for emails or do I have to find another app provider?  Currently I have to log in via the "My BT" app daily or sometimes more than once a day and it is a real pain!

   Secondly is Yahoo going to move away from hosting BT emails?  If so what will happen to person folders?

 

Thanks

Don't think there is a BT mail app, but there are countless others to choose from, I use Blue Mail which works very well.

Thanks for the replies but I was hoping someone from BT could answer my questions.  Hello, any one from BT on here who can answer my questions??

Why do you need a BT app, any app will work perfectly well and you won't have the same problem of the app being confined to one email provider as you did with the Yahoo app.

All your folders will still be there whatever app you use, the folders are created on the mail server.

Hi,

    What I liked about the Yahoo app was that it mirrored what is on the screen when I log in on my laptop.  If another app will do that too then that is reassuring.

My other query is a what if...?   What if Yahoo stops their partnership with BT, what will happen to emails stored in folders for safekeeping?  I obviously didn't word it very well, my bad.  To quote an incredibly over over OVERLY used question..."d'you know what I mean?"  🙂

Re: Demise of Yahoo app

All email apps that are set up as an IMAP account will "mirror" your email on your laptop.

Your emails are stored on BT servers so nothing will change.
