Windows 7: Yahoo ( Mail. Y does IMAP work on mobile, but

Yahoo ( Mail. Y does IMAP work on mobile, but

...not my computer?

Yahoo has been known to not have IMAP, so you cant download your folders you set up in your Yahoo Email account. Yet when I set it up on my Windows Mobile phone, I can use IMAP and I can get all my folders to download.

However, it doesnt work on my computer using Thunderbird or Outlook. Sure I can get my Yahoo email, but cant download my folders since I cant get IMAP to work. Does any one know why or how?
