I will attempt that again.  The last time I tried it...something threw me for a loop and I bailed - afraid that I would mess up something on my computer.  Thanks for the advice on IMap....have been reading of big time problems with Mac users and Yahoo with the POP issue.  Thanks!

As far as I know, Yahoo charges for using a desktop mail client (such as Mac Mail) - unless they've changed their setup. That is one reason why I access Yahoo via my browser instead of setting it up with Mail. Here is the info on Yahoo Plus:

Note the second line with POP and one further down with Mail forwarding...... This is for the US Yahoo email accounts.

If you just go to File->Add Account in Mail and type your yahoo.com mail address and password, the rest should work automatically.

Im not sure what yahoo plus is, it works for me out of the box and i am using a normal free account. But you never know, maybe yahoo plan to discontinue the free service in the future...
