Neither is the best choice. System Suite 5 from VCOM is the top rated 
utility for the past 3 years by PC Mag. I've been using it for about 5 
years and it works. Slightly less control than I like, but it is an 
all-in-one that does a ton of real things and they play nice with yahoo 
mail as far as I can tell - don't use yahoo mail much so can't say absolutely.

Who says bad manuals aren't a risk to your life?  Just ask the passengers 
of the jet where the engine caught fire because the company's maintenance 
manual was wrong about how to install one key bolt.  (NTSB Report on GE CF6 
engine fire, American Airlines flight 574, July 9, 1998.
