AFAIK you must be a paid subscriber of Yahoo Mail Plus to use email programs like Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc., to access your Yahoo mail.
Did you looked at the yahoo helpcenter?

Kind regards

Are you using Yahoo Mail Plus?
POP access is not available in Yahoo Mail's free version. Hacks exist use them at your own risk.
