I doubt Yahoo! cares about your emails taking up space.

YPOPS has been around for a long time, check into it here:

No, you don't give out your password, it is a program you install on your computer. Read the directions at the website carefully. They explain how to install it with several email clients.

Well, you still need to use your Yahoo Username and password. Yahoo gives you a ton of space now. Google gives you even more. Who cares how much space you are using. I barely use 4% of my yahoo space.

No matter what kind of client you use for POP3 email, you have to enter your user name and password. They have to be able to access your email account and retrieve/send your emails. In effect, the programs are doing what you would do, "signing in" at Yahoo!

YPOPS is a program that goes on your computer. It doesn't ever dial into their website or send them information or anywhere except Yahoo!
