Microsoft confirms Yahoo Mail causing Windows Phone 7 data leaks; provides workaround

Summary

Microsoft is confirming officially that ? as at least two bloggers reported in January ? that Yahoo Mail is causing the data leakage problems that some Windows Phone 7 users have encountered.

Microsoft officials declined to name the application which was causing the problems. On January 31, company officials admitted it was Yahoo Mail.

A fix to the problem ? which ?can result in larger than expected data usage for a very small percentage of users? ? will be delivered ?in the coming weeks,? Microsoft told Windows Phone Secrets author Paul Thurrott. Until then, Microsoft is providing a workaround to alleviate the data-leak problem.
