Not sure what service you're talking about here. Apple's ".Mac"  
online server service? Apple's "Mail" client application? ("iMail" is  
a mail server product from a company named Ipswitch.)

Again you need to more specific here. Do you mean the SMTP/IMAP/POP  
servers that OS X includes?

The SBC/Yahoo thing is just a marketing and branding program so I  
assume that by "support" you mean answer questions about as opposed  
to will it work or not. SBC/Yahoo use standards based (SMTP and POP)  
servers so it shouldn't matter what platform you use to access the  
mail you get via their service. SBC/Yahoo also has a forwarding  
service that will automatically send your email to another account if  
that's what you want.

What you're trying to do is probably easy to accomplish, but until  
you use the correct names for the source and destination of the mail  
you want to move I or others on this list aren't going to be able to  
give you specific directions to do what you want.
