Importing mail from Yahoo


I am running Mandrake 8.1 and would like to have my email sent from my Yahoo account to a mail reader on my Linux machine.

Is this even possible?

Thanks

Yes it is possible with KMail, Evolution or others, you'l have to create new mail account use pop3 as the pop server use pop.mail.yahoo.com
fill in the user name, password, etc. It all works llike Outlook Express but better without security issues the Outlook has, the process is simple

Hi Breezwell. I don't know if you guys are still watching this post... I hope so...

My question is:
To use Yahoo Mail in Evolution you need to have a paid yahoo acount, YAHOO PLUS, right? The link you have posted above says:

Quote:
POP Yahoo! Mail Plus with Another Email Client
.

I have tried here, but nothing seems to work. I did try pop.mail.yahoo.com, pop.mail.yahoo.com:995, etc.. with SSL, and PASSWORD authentication (the only one supported - Evolution made a verification)

That's it.
Thanks

I think it might depend on what country you're registered in.

For yahoo.co.uk email accounts POP access is free. You have to enable it and consent to receive (very occasional) email advertisments on a subject of your choice. I haven't actually received any such advertisments for years.
