I was trying to install a program called YPops into my PB so it would create a POP server on my computer for my Yahoo mail, so I could use it in Mail. Yahoo doesn't do it for free anymore. It told me to do something in a terminal to install it and I tried, but it didn't work -- the question is, could I have done some permanent damage? I have signed up for GMail to use with Mail (though I might just end up using my POP from my web site) but I wanted to keep fowarding messages from the Yahoo account until I had made the transition. I think I'm going to be stuck with Yahoo though, because there's no way I can just completely change my email address; I'm signed up for tons of newsletters, tons of contacts, etc. I've had this account for YEARS. I hate Yahoo .
