    You can buy one of the yahoo mail premium packages (whatever they're called). Or you can use YPOPS :toast:

    I use thunderbird, I hardly ever go through the yahoo website anymore. Ypops loads at startup and doesn't take hardly any system resources so I just forget about it. Voila free e-mail through thunderbird. That way I can collect E-mail from my yahoo account and university account simultaneously.

    EDIT: Oh, I'm not sure you understood. Ypops is a work around that lets Thunderbird, outlook, etc. connect to the yahoo mail servers. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough the first time around ;)

    i had a weird problem with my thunderbird last night.. clicked on it and apart for a quick hourglass flash nothing happened..??

    i copied the folder in case i lost all my mail and settings.. downloaded a new one installed it over the old one and it all worked again complete with all mail and settings..

    odd.. dont spose i will ever find out what stopped it going.. he he
