    Yahoo doesn't allow POP access anymore on their free email accounts. You have to pay for the 19.99 a year Yahoo plus email account to get POP access.

    Their is an app out there called YPOPS. It looks like a B to comfigure. It allows for sudo pop access to the yahoo free email servers.

    I have the Yahoo plus account and I check mail on both my iPod Touch and my iMac running Leopard. Easy enough.

    how does this work when you delete items? do you still have to log into the web-based yahoo to delete items>? otherwise aren't they still going to be on the server?

    You could get a GMX account and have it fetch mail from Yahoo! for you.
