You left out pretty much all the information, actually. How did you configure Evolution? What are your POP settings? Something must be setup wrong in the server configuration, probably the server address or port.

Also, you should get in the habit of creating more descriptive topic titles, as that will tend to get you help faster. For example "Ubuntu email" doesn't really describe this issue in the least, as the problem is with the configuration of Evolution and has nothing to do with Ubuntu.

I trust you have a yahoo account capable of pop/smtp? Go over the settings again in evolution. Here is more info.

You'll need to configure evolution in greater depth.

Read the tutorials posted or google "configure evolution for xxxxxxxx".
When you type in an IP for the server, don't forget to leave out the port using ":". e.g. 8.8.8.8:110

Just a tip, some online mail clients simply will not work with evolution. I have both gmail and hotmail. Gmail is great, but hotmail only works for reading and not sending email. Good luck
