    Free, no, but if you pay for the Yahoo pop email then yes. It's 20$ a year and well worth it if it is your primary email address like it is for me. It works great for me.

    Actually I think you could forward your free Yahoo mail to your .mac email.

    i would love to know how to forward mail because i think that comes with the payed service from the pop thing.


    i hate yahoo because you have to pay to get it sent to mail. and the fact i get 200 spam emails a day.

    Yes, I believe there is a program called "YPOP" or something like that that allows you to do this.

    Solve your problems. Dump Yahoo and get a Gmail account. You can do it all for FREE ;)

    Couldn't have said it any better myself. Even if you've been using Yahoo Mail for years... it sucks. Gmail is much, MUCH better -- and of course, free. In addition, Yahoo requires their users to PAY for the feature you're requesting. Gmail doesn't.
