    Yes, it seems that Yahoo is having problems. Sometime this morning I started getting the following error when connecting to their IMAP server on the SSL port (993):

    Error connecting to imap.yahoo.com: IO::Socket::INET6 configuration failed

    Do you prefer and try the IPv6 record first or did that happen because the connection using IPv4 failed?

    Technically looking at both the A and AAAA responses they both come back as CNAMEs, but I'm still wondering if you have an ipv6 vs ipv4 preference in your scripting based on the error above.

    Well, I am not sure what is going on. My web just got an SSL upgrade so that might be the reason; however, I have no trouble connecting to Outlook.com or Gmail on the SSL IMAP port, just Yahoo.

    My code has a preference for IPV4. The following code snippet specifies an IPV4 connection: 'Domain => AF_INET'.

    $$conn = IO::Socket::SSL->new(
    Proto => "tcp",
    SSL_verify_mode => 0x00,
    PeerAddr => $host,
    PeerPort => $port,
    Domain => AF_INET,
    );

    The odd thing is that unlike my web site my test server is not having trouble making an SSL connection to Yahoo. So I am not certain what is going on.

    Problem resolved. I had a typo in the hostname for the Yahoo IMAP server.
