totally off topic email question

Greetings all;

Running on empty here, but I said I'd ask.  This same neighbor has bought 
an acer lappy, widescreen.

She is using an email address at yahoo & has for years.  I've spent an 
hour already this evening trying to get thunderbird- to connect 
and suck the email we can see sitting there if we log in through the web 
page portal.

We know the username, and she knows her password, and we've refreshed it 
several times without effect.  We have 
tried 'yahoomail.om' 'mail.yahoo.com' and plain old 'yahoo.com' for the 
two servers, pop for sucking, and smtp for sending.  Thunderbird says its 
connected regardless of the name, but doesn't suck the messages down when 
told to, it connects, and slides the green bar across and back for about 
40 seconds, but nothing else happens.

So can someone clarify for me, the names of the  pop and smtp servers at 
yahoo.  Or how to make t-bird verbose enough to tell us whats wrong?

Cheers, Gene
