    New to the Mac world and having a peculiar problem.
    Have Mac Book Pro running OSX 10.5.7
    I tried to sync up my Yahoo mail account with Mac but I'm having trouble doing it. Gmail is fine, Yahoo ain't.
    I've resolved myself to this but once in a blue moon I like to try again. This time I am not able to delete the Yahoo mailbox and it's holding up my Gmail mail. It shows that the message is sending and stays that way.
    What did I do wrong!!!

    Yahoo does NOT offer free pop/imap connection like GMAIL. You have to pay for it with Yahoo! Mail Plus. They even have a email server setup page.

    yes but.....

    That is understood.
    I'm saying that since the last time I "tried" to sync Yahoo, I tried to delete the Yahoo mailbox and it won't delete.
    Also, since that Gmail won't send anything out.
