yahoo:

- the free email subs is not accessible via email client (well, before, yahoo offered free pop access). either u upgrade to a another yahoo subscription or google.com/linux for YoSucker - i've used that before - only for retrieval. the documentation for that utility is easy to understand (u can post back if u need some help.

MSN
- nope. u can't access it 'directly' with any linux email client (like the yahoo situation). check sourceforge for a third party tool. I remember last year that somebody posted a fetchmail script to do this (send and rcv) but i think MSN did some changes to their setup making the script obsolete.

search google.com for 'free pop mail'. i've tried hotpop.com.

try YoSucker for Yahoo email:

or gotmail for hotmail accounts:
