    Can you give us more details?

    POP3 settings, servers for incoming and outgoing mail, ....?

    Beware that Yahoo Mail doesn't support IMAP.


    Yahoo! Mail offers standard POP3 access for receiving emails incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite email client software. To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings:
    Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (port 110)
    Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (port 25)

    Found via Google.


    1. at deriko100: strange, I used Mail to access my Yahoo Mail before, and I have the free variant and not the Plus one.

    2. you could use Google Mail to access Yahoo Mail, and then use for using the Google Mail account (via IMAP), but if that is possible, so should using and the Yahoo account be.

    I have yahoo mail plus and it's only $19.95 per year. I use it with mail in OSx.

    Do you have office??? if so simply use Entourage instead of the mail client??? i have a standard yahoo address and i set it up with entourage last night dead easy!!!! :D

    simply click on the Entourage icon, type in your yahoo email address when prompted and watch it dowload and sync with your yahoo online account!!!!!

    Simple as that! :D:D:D
