      Today the options are :

      - POP : requires Yahoo! Mail Plus in the USA / free in Europe (go figure why...)
      - Zimbra : POP/IMAP : synchronizes all folders (not sure if Mail Plus is required)
      - Mobile:Windows Mobile, iphone, BlackBerry : IMAP free

      There is not full support of IMAP for example you can't use it on Thunderbird or Outlook

      If you just want the last 30 months then you'd be better off with POP access thru Yahoo! Mail Plus if you live the USA and setup you mail client to retrieve only the last messages of your inbox. This, however, will require that you do not have any filters configure on Yahoo! Mail that automatically place messages in particular folders because POP access only check the inbox. Other folders are not synchronized. therefore the folder management has to be set up offline with your client
