    Does anyone know why my mail will not setup for yahoo mail. It works on the Iphone to get mail from yahoo but not on my new Imac. When I run the setup it is asking that yahoo pop needs a few. What is this?

    Sorry but this is my first Mac computer:confused:

    What incoming/outgoing server addresses are you using?

    To be able to retrieve your yahoo mail through another client, yahoo makes you pay for their "pro" version. Without it, you have to actually log into your account. It sucks, I know :(

    Wow, that's lame. So even if you know the server addresses, they have some kind of authentication system in place that checks for it?

    hmm. GMail is another web client, idk anything about its setup. I think what the user is trying to do, is pull in mail through a mail-client, like Mac-Mail, Entourage, etc. For these, all you need is the correct server addresses & ports.

    @OP:
    Are you using the same POP3/SMTP addresses that you setup on your IPhone?

    I will check tonight when I get home, but I believe I am using the same POP/SMTP as the Iphone.
