Unfortunately, Yahoo wants to charge you for that.

Unlike gmail (which you can pop or imap for free), you need to subscribe to Mail Plus to use a third party mail program.

There used to be a program called ypops.


Unfortunately, yahoo made some changes and it stopped working for a while.

Ypops made some fixes. You can receive mail with the newest version but you cannot send mail. There is no prediction as to when this will be fixed.

So your options are

1) Subscribe to Mail Plus $19.99 / yr http://overview.mail.yahoo.com/enhancements/mailplus

2) Use ypops in its limited capacity.

3) Switch to gmail or GMX where it is free.
