Coming as a follow up to the news that Yahoo Mail was the culprit behind the Windows Phone 7 data leak issues, Yahoo has offered up an official statement letting everyone know that this was an issue with how “Microsoft chose to implement IMAP for Yahoo! Mail.” In other words, Yahoo! Mail is available (and just fine) on other mobile platforms to include iOS, Android, Symbia and RIM and you should not be afraid to use Yahoo! Mail on your mobile device because with the exception of the current Windows Phone 7 issues, it will not cause you to use more than you allotted monthly data allowance. That said, here is the statement;

“Yahoo! Mail is widely available on tens of millions of mobile phones, including those running on Apple iOS, Android, Nokia Symbian, and RIM. The issue on the Windows Phones is specific to how Microsoft chose to implement IMAP for Yahoo! Mail and does not impact Yahoo! Mail on these other mobile devices. Yahoo! has offered to provide Microsoft a near-term solution for the implementation they chose, and is encouraging Microsoft to change to a standard way of integrating with Yahoo! Mail, which would result in a permanent fix.”
