I have the latest mailstore version. Am archiving a yahoo account and it seems to be working except it's taking a very long time. It ran all night and is still not done. Is Yahoo throttling this? Is there a way to speed it up?
Thanks!

Hi Wayne,

" Is Yahoo throttling this?"
Yes and another culprit might be your AV software.

For Yahoo - Archive smaller  "chunks" at a time.
Also see  Article: Known symptom when archiving Yahoo! mailbox
https://getsatisfaction.com/email_archiving_software/topics/error-message-the-imap-server-has-return...

You didn't get that error, but part of the article would still apply to you.
Yahoo doesn't like long duration , high volume downloads for a variety of reasons........

As for AV protection.
Exempt MSH archive from being scanned - should be set as default anyway,
since MSH requires exclusive access.
Some AV programs bring archiving to a halt if MSH archive is not exempted...

See if this helps ....
