question regarding Evolution Email


i have a question regarding Evolution Email, maybe someone can point me in the right direction. Im using redhat 9 and for my emails i use yahoo. i would like to set up Evolution with my yahoo email address if possible so that i dont have to go to yahoo's site and check my email. i have bellsouth as my ISP(DSL). here is what i've done so far

i have configured evolution in the box for email address i put my email('myemail@yahoo.com)

Receiving Mail
server type: POP
host: mail.bellsouth.net
username: the username provided by bellsouth

Sending Mail
servery type: SMTP
host: mail.bellsouth.net

here is my question, whenever i click on send/receive to see my emails, it only downloads the email send to my bellsouth account. I thought that by adding they email address i have with yahoo, i was going to be able to download all the emails send to the yahoo account. Can ayone tell me if im missing something? Thanks in advance

Hi
In principle, it is of course possible to do what you are trying to do....but unfortunately, I don't think Yahoo allow you do download their email with a pop3 client anymore without paying for the privilage(it costs 19.99 per year I think).

Btw - you were not doing it quite right. You need to setup two accounts in Evolution - one for your ISP and one for Yahoo (mail.yahoo.com).

No, but you have to download and configure a program called hotwayd for incoming hotmail and also configure hotsmtpd for outgoing hotmail.
hotwayd.sourceforge.net

Since my main email is with yahoo I followed lancerto's advise and did some research on the topic. As mentioned by Lancerto, yahoo requires you to pay a yearly fee in order for you to use their service. I thought it was worth it and subscribed to the service. My configuration is listed below:

Receiving Mail
server type: POP
host: pop.mail.yahoo.com
username: the username provided yahoo


Sending Mail
servery type: SMTP
host: smtp.mail.yahoo.com

please note that this worked for me, not sure it would work for everyone. Also, as Vincent mentioned, you can use hotmail if you dont want to pay.
