The only problem is that I am coming across some problems, i go to file>add account> i then change it to POP, and then fix all the information> NEXT> then i change incoming mail server to mail.yahoo.com, put in my user name and password. hit continue and then it says that it failed.... am i doing this wrong? i did the same with my school email and it also did not work any help please

    Yahoo

    I believe POP forwarding is a function Yahoo makes you pay extra for.

    If you look around on Yahoo's email section, you'll find information on how to subscribe.

    It's lame, but as far as I know, there's no way around it if you want to use .mail or Entourage with Yahoo.
