text email client that supports gmail and Yahoo


could someone please point to tools that I can use from my console to download my yahoo and gmail emails. I need some good and easy instruction as well I read about MUTT but I couldn't find any good and detailed documentation about using it to get my gmail mails. And I am not sure if MUTT works with yahoo mails.

I am open to other tools as well. And help on configuring mutt or links to tutorials is appreciated.

not sure about yahoo, but you can access gmail via smtp and pop.

outgoing server:
port : 995 (SSL encrypted)

incoming server:
port : 465 (SSL)

Basically, any email client that supports SSL will work with google.
