OAuth and Java Mail

It's now possible to specify a Yahoo! Mail scope for OAuth authorized projects.
But it's still not clear how to use it. The documentation still refers to BBAuth.
Should we still stay on BBAuth to be able to use the Yahoo! Mail APIs ? isn't BBAuth deprecated ?

    See the documentation for more information: http://developer.yahoo.com/mailapplications/. OAuth is the preferred way to access most apis.

    Thanks for your reply, I realize that I wasn't clear enough in my question. I'm not trying to develop an app for Yahoo! Mail, I have a web application that is connected to several web mails such as Hotmail and GMail. It aggregates the emails and allows users to perform specific actions on them. I'm using POP3 and SMTP to fetch and reply to messages on those platforms. I would like to add Yahoo! Mail emails to my supported platforms. I cannot assume my users have a Yahoo Plus account for POP3 and SMTP to work. So I wanted to use the Yahoo! Mail webservices API to fetch and reply to messages.

    Is the API you pointed me to the right one to use for my use case? I'd love to do everything with OAuth if that was possible.

    Thanks again.
