> Yahoo employees have to use Yahoo Mail for all of their work e-mail. The web interface only, with ads.

I don't know where you got this from, if it was true but no longer isn't, or if it's only true in parts of the company, but I was just there for 13 months after an acqui-hire and no one ever made me or anyone on my team use Yahoo Mail.

The mandate to use Yahoo Mail for corp users is from the last month or two. Perhaps it does not cover the entire company, but my understanding was that it did.

Yahoo corp mail was previously Exchange (!). Also awful, but at least it supports IMAP.

OK, nevermind -- your information is newer than mine. I escaped Yahoo late last year, so I wouldn't've heard about this.
