however the domain yahoo.com is still located at :

The email service of yahoo.com through the website (https) Yahoo! Europe located at 125 Shaftesbury Avenue, London seems to work still fine. However the email service through IMAP over SSL (imaps 993/tcp) has more downtime as uptime, which has become a nasty burden.
My question would be, does Yahoo! Inc. at 701 First Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA still have a website service and or IMAP service running? And where did the Yahoo! Inc ip-addresses disappear to ? Are there only UK ip-numbers now ?
