    My girlfriend and I have both tried setting up Mail with Yahoo but the POP and SMTP servers are rejecting both of our passwords. Can anybody think what we might be doing wrong? Thanks.

    Edit: found out I need Yahoo Plus. Would be nice if they bothered to mention this in the setting-up instructions.

    The outgoing (smtp) server maybe blocked by your ISP - often they only allow you to use their own smtp server to send mail.

    Not sure about POP - but I recall you had to go and switch on access somewhere in the Yahoo account prefs. You did this, yes?

    Just edited my original post, sorry for wasting your time. Didn't realise most places charge you to use POP mail.
