Well it seems it's worse than that, Yahoo mail has features that yahoo plus does not
1.calender added as a Tab next to contacts on mail - not in mail plus
2.In help Yahoo has Mail help Community - Yahoo + does not
3. My Yahoo button to the rigfht of the screen - yahoo + does not
At least in Yahoo + the adds to the right of the screen have gone, but you tend to gloss over those anyway
So I got Yahoo + so that i could create backups in Windows Live Mail(WLM), at the moment I have manged to get my Btinternet mail working on WLM but it dose not show any of the directories I have created over the last couple of years only the standard ones of Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, Junk and Deleted items.
I have about 50 directories with god knows how many emails in them
I have tried creating a new subdirdctory and then rebooting etc as mentioned in some forums but no luck
So yes all in all a waste of £11.99 for the year, unless it improves or works after settling down.
This is a bump to see if there is an easy solution to backup my emails, I gave up previously, sorry for the previous respones but I will go through again and try and set up a Thunderbired solution unless there is an easier one.
