How can I get my ymail account to show up on Thunderbird? I signed up for an account because I wanted to join a group (temporarily) on Flikr, but I can't figure out how to get emails to Thunderbird, it says that my username or password isn't correct, but I know that it is. What am I doing wrong?

OK, it turns out that yahoo mail has an absolutely ridiculous policy that you have to pay to be able to use POP3 (but only if you live in the US). Even more absurd because the rest of the world gets it without paying?? :rolleyes: However, you can configure Thunderbird to work as IMAP instead of POP3, it works, but it's not quite as nice as the other way. Hope this helps someone else who gets suckered in to yahoo mail.
