If you have a "normal" Yahoo Mail account (i.e. webmail) then you do not have POP3 access. You either need the httpmail plugin or pay Yahoo for POP access.

Maybe looking at Yahoo would be a good start?? :rolleyes: They must have some documentation on their site telling you what servers you need to use. If you get these then someone can help you getting it setup, though to be honest it is pretty straight forward.
