Does anyone knows how to install YPOPs for Linux????


YPOPs! is an application that provides POP3 access to Yahoo! Mail. I'm having trouble to install it...
Does anyone use it and can help me with it?

I've not used Ypops, but I'd suggest FreePOPs. It works with much more than just Yahoo!, and packages are available for many distros. Debian and Gentoo actually include it in their repositories.

freepops works with yahoo and other webmail clients - I used to use it, but it broke with F7, so now I'm using the webmail add-on for Thunderbird, which didn't used to work. I could never get Ypops working properly.

Once caveat with freepops (the same may apply to the webmail add-on), but if you're trying the Yahoo mail Beta interface, it may not work, so switch to the original interface.

cheers,
