I am hoping someone can help. I downloaded or sync'ed my entire Yahoo inbox to my local Outlook. I forgot to select the option to leave a copy of the email on the (Yahoo) server. Ooops!! Now my Yahoo inbox is empty, except for new emails.

I like to access my entire inbox from multiple places, so I want all the emails that WERE in my Yahoo inbox back in there. I assume there is not a way to import a PST file into my POP3 Yahoo email account, is there?

Are there any other options?

Thank you!

Couldnt you just email them back to your Yahoo account?
In the beginning there was the command line.

That might work, but you'd probably have to disable incoming mail in Outlook to keep it from just coming right back (maybe remove the incoming server?).

Another reason IMAP is better than POP...

Let us know if you can't get it to work. There might be other options.
