Kmail Configuration
 
Can someone help me to setup kmail to retreive mail from mail.yahoo.com ?




I have tried with pop and pop.mail.yahoo.com at incoming but it tells me that username passwd are bad.




Thanks for your help.

I think you might have mis-understood Yahoos stance on POP mail.
(Quoted onsite)
"POP Access to External Mail:"

<You can configure Yahoo! Mail to retrieve messages from most External Mail accounts to which you have POP access. An account with POP access is one that you are able to access through an external email client such as Outlook, Eudora, or Netscape Mail.

In otherwords, if you have an account on a POP server, Yahoo can retrieve it. Yahhoo is not a POP server (http). It might have changed since I had a Yahoo acct., but I'm thinking it's still the same.
