boxbe disingenuous: lies about unliking yahoo and other webmail with 3rd party auth interface

https://api.login.yahoo.com/WSLogin/V1/unlink    allows one to disengage third party service access to yahoo (webmail) accounts.  Boxbe would much prefer users not grasp this simplicity and would rather have one *continue* to erroneously trust boxbe not to peek and webmail contents by “disabling” boxbe access to yahoo webmail via the boxbe control panel

They very likely have the same FALSE advice aboutgmail, and aol webmail.  Wonder why live hotmail is not supported by boxbe.

I prefer to use the much older mail fetching protocols to loop ‘free’ webmail through my own hosted antispam system.
