An additional encryption setting called ‘Secure Sockets Layer’ (or ‘SSL’), will soon be the new standard default connection for all Yahoo Xtra mail accounts and Telecom will be assisting users who access the service via a ‘third party’ email client, such as Microsoft Outlook for PCs or Android for mobiles, to update their settings.
I don't see how that is going to solve this particular problem, as those email addresses are already out in the wild. Also weren't they hacked last year from the webmail platform? And that had nothing to do with people outlook connection. I know that my address was hacked, and I only ever used webmail for my xtra yahoo address/ SSL has been around for donkeys years, and has been the standard with most providers for years. They really need to use SPF.I guess they have to be seen to be doing something.
