Yahoo Request Parameters

When syncing email data from a mailbox on Yahoo, All Mail folders and its contents will be synced. This ensures that all mail (except the ones moved to the Trash or Spam folders) from the account are synced without any duplicates.

When submitting requests to upload email data, the Request type to be selected must have Yahoo as a source.

The parameters to be used when Yahoo is the source are as follows:

(Note: The id should not contain the domain name.)
Source domain Source domain on Yahoo  ""

Note: Passwords cannot contain special characters mentioned in the list given here. Update the password before submitting the request.
