Sounds good Dan. I am not familiar with a couple of the services
listed but as long as they provide free IMAP and POP accounts that
conform to the RFC's then the more servers to test against the better.
FYI: POP support in Yahoo is a paid service for which we already have
an account. See the
QA accounts page for the info.
Certainly setting up a number of servers to test against in house
would be ideal but understandably that is a time consuming task.
