    So I'm trying to get Apple Mail to grab my Yahoo mails, but for the life of me can't seem to get it to work.. I dont have the Yahoo Mail PLUS i have the Yahoo Mail free POP..... Can anyone provide some instructions for this syncing?

    Thanks,
    John

    You can't, unless you have Plus. Set your yahoo mail to forward to a gmail account and do it that way.

    It won't work. You need Yahoo PLUS for that as well...

    i have a very old yahoo account and pop works. It's a bit strange in that it it will even grab the junk mail but i'm definitely NOT paying PLUS...and it works.
