    Can someone guide me through this, I don't know what the incoming server for yahoo is (to mention one issue)? I know it is so simple, I just don't seem to find any guides or tips anywhere!

    I think you are looking for Yahoo POP mail. It is a pay service. Take a look at your yahoo mail site for their "enhanced services." Google POP is free... I have it set up to be used by Mail. Intrucitions are on the gmail.com site once you have logged in under Settings- Forwarding and POP.

    Correction- when you loggin to Yahoo Mail, you can find the POP option under "Upgrades" in the top menu. You are looking at $19.99 per year to make this happen.

    Yahoo Mail POP Access

    Hi,

    I have Yahoo Mail POP Access working just fine...

    You must have signed up for "Yahoo! Delivers"

    It is the bit which says "send me special offers from time to time" or something like that... Sneaky of them, but then this gives you access to free stuff like POP Access and Forwarding....

    Once you've done that, then:

    1. Login to your yahoo mail account.
    2. Select Options on Right hand side underneath the search box.
    3. Make sure you are in "Mail" options (Menu is on left hand side of the screen)
    4. Select POP Access and Forwarding

    Good luck!
