Is it possible to access another users email in the yahoo mail application platform?

Is their some sort of way to pass permissions? I know yql cant be used and I didnt see anything in the api reference, that looked remotely close, but maybe i didnt understand. I was thinking not be able to  reply with the mail or change folders  just view the content of certain email messages.

  • You can only access the logged-in user's email.  Why would we let you access another user's email.  To access the logged-in user's email:

  • I read this article on ecocomputing and it occurred to me how so many emails are simply stored and not used afterward, i was thinking if their was a way to access emails from another user it could make the data still relevant in some way.
