    How do I get my yahoo mail to come into the mail program that came with my ibook? I was reading in Yahoo mail and I thought I read it would cost me $3.99 a month for this. Is this correct if so why, I should be able to read the mail anywhere I want. I need some help please.....

    This is correct. Yahoo is providing the service. And they can provide it in whatever fashion they want.

    The free service is a web mail account. That means you have to read it through your web browser. The reason it can be free is due to those beautiful ads that take up half the screen. If you download the mail into a mail program they don't make money from advertising. So, to use their POP3 or IMAP service (not sure which they have) they will charge you an extra fee.

    What you say makes sense, but I thought someone would find a way to do it without paying. Thanks for the explanation.
