    do you have premium POP3 yahoo accounts? if you just have the free ones, you can't use mail. and fyi, this is Yahoo's fault, not Apples-- free web-based email does not generally lend itself to POP3 access. Hotmail has a hack plugin, but yahoo does not to my knowledge.

    if you have the premium accounts, or if Yahoo is your ISP, then there is a problem. What incoming mail server did you specify?
