    Microsoft on Tuesday revealed that a Yahoo! email inefficiency was the culprit of a phantom data bug affecting Windows Phone 7 users. Yahoo! apologized for the bug initially, but later issued a second statement claiming Microsoft’s IMAP implementation was unique on Windows Phone 7 devices, and this was the root cause of the problem. Programmer Rafael Rivera decided to launch an independent investigation into the matter, however, and he posted his findings to his Within Windows blog on Wednesday. In short, Rivera contests that Yahoo!’s IMAP email issues are not confined to Windows Phone 7 devices. He goes on to demonstrate that standard IMAP requests sent to Yahoo! email servers return excess data that falls outside IMAP protocol. Yahoo! has not confirmed or denied these findings.

    Now I know my misterious over usage of data...really, I had 2 yahoo accounts, one was sort of like a premium and in no time my phone downloaded over 28MB of data for no clear purpose.

    Thank God, I closed all my email accounts with yahoo, after I was notified by friends, that I was "sending out spam mails" too.
    It all came from Yahoo.
    I had it with them, goodbye, See you never!
