    What's a good application for checking my yahoo e-mail without visiting and signing into their website? Perhaps there is a widget?

    When I try to set up a POP account using 'Mail' it stays on 'Checking connection to POP server 'mail.yahoo.com' indefinitely

    yep

    Use fluidmac.com. Not EXACTLY what you're looking for, but it's as close as you're going to get.

    You must have either Yahoo! Mail Plus or Business Mail, because the free Yahoo mail accounts don't offer POP3.

    Nope. I DON'T have Mail Plus, or a business account. It's a standard Yahoo! account. :)

    Wonder if it's a non-US thing? (i.e. you get free POP3 access if you're anywhere else in the world)
