  • The Mail API should work for your needs. Please see the documentation for obtaining user information here: http://developer.yahoo.com/mail/docs/user_...taExamples.html

    any Suggestion may be appreciated :DI'm surprised this isn't more obvious? Does Yahoo even provide the ability to get a users e-mail address after OAuth / proper permissions? I see at least 3 posts on the forum asking this question and no decent answer. The url suggested to Mail API Examples doesn't work.

  • Hi Todd,

    The recommended way is to use OpenID with OAuth as documented
    in the Yahoo! OpenID + OAuth Quick Start Guide:
    http://developer.yahoo.com/oauth/guide/ope...auth-guide.html

    With that, users can sign into your web site with their Yahoo!
    OpenID and you can use that to identify these users. Because
    we support the OpenID Attribute Exchange (AX) extension, you can
    also request for user's name, email address, profile pic, gender,
    timezone, and language preference during the sign-in flow. You can
    check this post for details:

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks,
