    Yes, the MAIL application lets you get e-mail on the iPod touch.

    there is an email app already on the iPod Touch. its a picture of an envelope on a blue background. i think you go to setting, mail, add new account or somethin like that. its really simple to use but the mail app doesnt support Hotmail

    Do you have an iPod touch? It's on your home screen.

    There should be a mail app on your home screen by default.

    Is your iPod touch a new one or old one?
    If it's one of the new ones (chrome bezel) then it's got the Mail app built in.
    If it's an original (gunmetal gray bezel) then it could be without the mail app that was released as an optional purchase shortly after it's release, and can be added by upgrading to version 2.0 of the iPod OS (not sure if the original add-on pack is still available but if it is you could also get that)

    your welcome. yes, it will go to your Yahoo email first and when you open up mail and refresh it, the email will be synced to your iPod

    go to settings, then go to mail, contacts, calendars, then go to your Yahoo account and you can edit the information there
