Here's how to finally POP your Yahoo mail on your Mac super easy for free.
Install it and run it. Tell mail.app that your username is your complete yahoo.com e-mail address, enter your password, and add port 2000.
Done. That's it. Nothing more to do but to donate (optional) if you enjoy this super easy solution.
I've tried to be patient, but the Mac version of YPOPs! sucks. Much respect to the developers, but clearly you guys are Windows-only people or otherwise don't care for the Mac platform. -- understandable -- not a criticism, just an observation based on how miserable the Mac version's experience is...
After all these years of trying to compile YPOPs myself and getting it to run, or tracking down precompiled binaries and getting it to run... all without success... I've had it with YPOPs.
MacFreePOPs not only works right out of the box, it's truly captured the simplicity of the Macintosh experience.
Please don't delete this thread/post. Let people move on to MacFreePOPs and let YPOPs for Mac die.... or use this thread/post as inspiration to improve the Mac version of YPOPs.
