    iTunes works just fine for burning audio CDs. Just put the songs you want on a playlist, and then select the "Burn CD" option near the bottom.

    Thanks

    Tried to configure the mail setup to my yahoo account and think I messed it all up.
    I can't even figure out how to go into the setup procedure again to retry it.

    If your budget does not allow the $99 student version of Microsoft Office, there is an open-source product (NeoOffice) that states it is compatible with Word documents. I have not tried this app, but there is another thread having a discussion about this product.

    File > Add Account

    You have to go to Mail Options in Yahoo! and turn on POP Settings.

    - start Mail
    - click on Mail menu at the top of the screen
    - then preferences
    - In preferences dialog, choose Accounts tab
    -select the offending account from the list and click on the minus sign at the bottom of the list.
    - click on the plus sign to add a new account and go through the wizard questions again.

    Cheers

    Thanks you.
    Tried it, yahoo isn't logging in for some reason.
    I followed yahoo's POP info and tried a few times. Hmm.

    unless you have a PAID account w/yahoo, last time i checked, they disabled POP3 so its will NOT work no matter what you do. your only alternative to paying would be to see if you the forwarding option works in free yahoo mail. if it does create an account with someone who DOES allow pop like gmail, have your yahoo mail fwd'd to it and let Mail retrieve it from there. good luck

    Bean could be good enough for you. Many things it can't do, but it starts up very fast, and a nice live word count is built in.

    For burning CDs, iTunes is fine. For more granular control of burning CDs/DVDs, you can use the freeware Burn.
