    This is possible, however MSN and Yahoo! do not allow POP access to mail for free. There are third-party apps that will allow this, like Mail Forward, but they usually require a registration fee.
    As far as I know, GMail is the only free email provider that also allows free POP access to your email.

    I have no idea, if these are valid, because I don't use Yahoo nor MSN. I didn't think MSN or Yahoo had enabled POP access, but go ahead and try. Good luck.
