    If you cant figure out how to use your free yahoo mail with the mail program on mac there is a pretty simple trick to help you out

    i've been meaning to post this for awhile just keep forgetting

    login to yahoo mail and change the settings to yahoo asia ( which is what i used and it works...) or its been reported that yahoo Great Britain might work as well

    then in yahoo setting allow pop forwarding you have to switch it manually

    Then your ready to work with apple mail

    go to preferences and add your account

    type in login and it will say it failed click contiuue

    change account type to pop

    and in comming server to

    any questions and ill see what i can do



    tested it agian to make sure it still works and not problem at all works with out a hitch

    have video of it so that i will post if anyone needs it

    imap account also seems to work give it a try and let me know

    After I installed Lion and set up my free Yahoo Mail it started working like a charm. I have had no problems. I did not have to change any settings.
