does anyone know of a way to have mozilla use the web based yahoo mail as its mail client? so when i click on a mailto:blahblahblah it will open a yahoo mail "compose new mail" window?


OR know a way around the no pop3 access?

thanks

I use a program called yosucker(great prog) that downloads all of ur yahoomail. Ive seen some others that make a pop3 server that u can connect to to download yahoomail.

BTW using yosucker u can download the email, and have it use procmail. Then u could use some imap/po3 server to let mozilla get to it(dont think mozilla will read right out of the mailder, but i might be wrong). Advantage is u can then set up squirrellmail to remotely acess ur mail.

there is also a program along the same basis called fetchyahoo.

I've used both, and I'm not sure which I like better.

The biggest problem with that is that yosucker requires a number of perl modules, which gentoo doesn't have. So, if anyones up for that challenge? :)

Actually I started writing it the other day, and there are ebuilds for hlaf the modules. Now that comp is totally crashed, but when it's back, maybe I'll finish it.

I think mozilla should incorporate a preferences that will start mail.yahoo.com or hotmail.com, etc...when you click on a mailto:
link.

i recently switched from XP to gentoo, and this is one of the things I miss from windows (this and a recent docs menu).

Does anyone know if fetchyahoo works with perl 5.8.0? Worked nice yesterday before I upgraded to Gentoo 1.4, but now it just eats my mails :-(
