    You didn't provide much info to go on. I'm assuming you're referring to Mac Mail not working? What exactly is not working? Tell us what you have already tried in order to fix the problem. Post back and we can go from there.

    Regards.

    Yes Mac Mail- Yahoo does not work, but Gmail does.
    I input my name, email address and password, then I hit create and I get this "trying to log into mail server "plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com" failed. Then it says it may require an additional fee for Yahoo POP access.

    BUT I just tried my Gmail account and it worked!!

    But....Yahoo is my main account. So I guess I will go to yahoo and see if they have any information on it.

    Since GMail is working OK, it's probably a matter of redoing the Yahoo account. Delete the account from Mac Mail and then create it again as a new account. Make sure you have the address info as given by Yahoo: SMTP, POP3, and so forth. I'm not sure if Yahoo Mail does iMap (it should) but if it does, you can follow their directions on how to set that up with Mac Mail.

    Regards.
