Ok, so I have my email set up on the iphone with my free yahoo account. Everything works great. My question is, why can't you use Yahoo Mail with the OS X Mail program? I have tried everything, and what I keep reading is that you have to pay for the yahoo email to work. Is this true? Or are people in the forum using Mac Mail with their free yahoo accounts? :confused:

i use mail.app with my free yahoo account, but ive had a yahoo account for at least 5 years, and have been using it through a POP client since i got it, so it might not be an option for you guys now. Also im in the UK if that makes a difference (@yahoo.co.uk, not .com

yahoo only supports imap for the iphone. They offer pop, but that requires you pay for yahoo mail plus ($15 a year, or somewhere around there).

Otherwise it's web only.
