Further Foolishness from Yahoo!
Recently, I have been having trouble sending my mail from OS X Mail. While my usual inclination is to blame Apple for yet another instance of software development ineptitude, I happened to notice on my RSS feed for Vienna support that Adium users were also having trouble connecting to their Yahoo! accounts. Apparently, this had to do with disabling some of the functionality in Messenger. The advice from Yahoo! was to login to Yahoo! from any device of choice. This seems to have improved the behavior of OS X Mail. Reading further, I discovered that what they meant by "safety" was "protection from illegal bitcoin mining." Boy, am I glad that technology innovations are simplifying my life!
