    POP3 as it seems.

    Have a look at Yahoo Help while you're logged into YahooMail for the proper POP3 settings.

    There may even be an IMAP option.

    that only seems to work with yahoo's premium service.
    but apparently YPOPs app can do it. it says it's only officially released for Windows but a build for mac is available 'somewhere'...
    also MacFreePOPs -- some say it seems to work better
