XXXXX XXXXXnell :

to be able to use POP, you need to become a yahoo PLUS subscriber

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

$49.99

JACUSTOMER-sd9eoe37- :

im not paying any think i dont think

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

so you are a standard member

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

unfortunately you will not be able to use your Yahoo mail

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

do you have Hotmail? it is free

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

Hotmail or gmail

JACUSTOMER-sd9eoe37- :

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

unfortunately yahoo does not support pop3 for free accounts. Hotmail and gmail supports it

JACUSTOMER-sd9eoe37- :

yes

XXXXX XXXXXnell :

you have 2 options

XXXXX XXXXXnell :
