yahoo does not give u pop access for free so u cannot do that for free

and using lynx web browser u can try that

If your Yahoo account is activated for pop access, you could use pine to access your mail (e.g. from server pop.mail.yahoo.com). Another option could be the use of lynx, which is text-based browser. I have never used it and it may be a little tricky to finally read your mail.

Try 'pine'. If you haven't used it before, it should guide you through the setup, where you enter all information about username, server, etc..
