For some strange reason, both Microsoft and Yahoo like the idea of refusing us the possibility of using their mail services with desktop clients using POP3 or IMAP, and force us to check our e-mail from the web unless you pay them for a Premium account.

While it seems that recently the two companies have begun to rethink the one hand offering solutions such as Microsoft Windows Live Mail and Outlook Connector, and now Yahoo! Zimbra Desktop, is an e-mail client, a service / mail server and a free scheduler. Its newly launched desktop version offers complete compatibility with Yahoo Mail, and also allows us to use it with Gmail, AOL and any mail service that supports the POP / IMAP.

Besides, this application includes several quite remarkable features, like a support for labels (which unfortunately is not synchronized with those of Gmail), a timetable and agenda for quite useful contacts (but neither is synchronized with the respective services of Yahoo) and integration with Yahoo Maps to give directions and maps instantly.

In short, an indispensable application for all who use Yahoo Mail and want to access when the offline. And that also is available for both Windows and Mac and Linux.
