    I finished reformatting my HD again and I decided to start using Thunderbird.

    I just can't figure out for the life of me how to use a Yahoo account on there.

    Apparently, Yahoo doesn't allow the use of an their accounts on outside programs unless you pay for it, which I won't.

    My AOL and Comcast accounts work fine, then again, they're IMAP or whatever it's called.

    So...does anyone know a way to make a Yahoo account work on Thunderbird, or should I just be happy with what I have.

    werd. if you have verizon dsl or sbc yahoo dsl, you can use your yahoo account through a mail as long as you indicate you want to use it.
