MOZILA THUNDERBIRD - question I am with slingshot, and my slingshot mail comes into my outlook express. My son has a yahoo email addy and he checks this at the yahoo website. He now has a laptop and he wants to have his yahoo email come into his mozila thunderbird when he logs online. I cant figure out how he should set up the accountlike what do I put as the pop3 etc? Can anyone advise?

Through my Yahoo I am told to upgrade to 'Mail Plus' for $2 a month if I want pop3 access. Im sure theres a work around howeversearching...

Here you go: I think I used them in the past once, or something similar. Give it a try.

Can't you re-direct your yahoo mail to your slingshot address? I have have 2 or 3 different yahoo address that come through Thunderbird.
