    I think yahoo has a pop server that you can use with mail (at least they did when I was on yahoo)

    Yahoo Mail POP

    In your Yahoo mail mailbox, click "Mail Upgrades" and then on "POP Access and Forwarding." It costs $19.95 per year, and when you register, they will give you the POP server address (probably mail.yahoo.com, but I'm not sure).

    And if you aren't familiar with POP accounts already:

    Once you are registered ,go into Mail Preferences, and click "Accounts" Click the "Add Account" button. Now select "POP" from the "Account Type" list, type a description, your yahoo email address, name, POP server (that they gave you when you registered), and your yahoo username and password.

    Now Mail will automatically include your Yahoo mail when you check mail.

    httpmail <-- they have released a new version specifically for panther, though they warn of massive bugs. I dunno if it'll work for yahoo mail, but it's worth a try, I know that hotmail used to be a pop provider, but now require you to pay for that, and now work as an http provider. Hope that helped :)

    The author says it won't work with Yahoo mail. Said it would have to be retooled. However, I revitalized an old Hotmail account to test the plugin, and it works beautifully.
