Allen, somewhere on Yahoo's web pages there should be all the settings you 
need to work with *any* mail client. If some toffee-nosed little b***** tells 
you that they don't work with linux, it just shows that he doesn't know what 
he's talking about.  The settings you need are exactly the same as for any 
other client.

One caveat - 'Check what the server supports' in the way of security is not 
always accurate.  Hopefully the Yahoo page will tell you exactly how to set 
it up.

If you find the page but don't understand anything, give us the url for the 
page and ask your question.  Don't forget to tell us which mail application 
you have chosen - not because it wants something different, but because the 
layout can be different, so it makes explanations easier.
