    you helped me set up my email on my powerbook using mac mail for gmail and it works great!

    i just got my buddy to convert from a windows pc to a g3 ibook and we are trying to set up his yahoo email to work with mac mail. the question we have is what settings do we use for the mail servers if anyone knows

    Thanks in advance! apples are the best! :apple:

    Since when? I thought it was IMAP maybe, as I have used the POP3 access via Mail in Tiger and Leopard, ergo 2005 to 2008.

    I've read your link, and I all can think is: those stupid sheepsmeggers.

    I don't know that Yahoo! even offers IMAP, but the POP access used to be free and they notified everyone that it was only going to be a offered with the Yahoo! Mail Plus for a fee. It's been quite a while as I recall.

    I just Googled it and it looks like the free POP service was discontinued in 2002, hard to believe it's been that long.

    I have read that there is a way, by using some "hacks" and other programs, but it never worked for me. You may want to research it.
