    I just use the "Mail" app and add the Yahoo account. Most people think that you have to have Yahoo mail Plus in order to set it up as POP but that's not true. Below are the setup instructions to add a fee Yahoo account to the Mail app, or any mail client for that matter:

    How to set up Yahoo! IMAP email:

    –This does not require Yahoo! Plus Mail, the paid service of Yahoo! mail.
    1. From the home screen, touch the applications tab (at the bottom of the screen)
    2. Touch Email
    3. Touch Manual Setup at the bottom left corner
    - Select the IMAP option
    4. In the incoming server settings, enter the details as follows:
    Username: XXXX@yahoo.com (enter your complete yahoo email address)
    Password: enter your yahoo password
    IMAP Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 143
    Security Type: None
    IMAP Path Prefix: leave blank
    5. Touch next to continue to SMTP Server Settings and enter the details as follows:
    SMTP: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 587
    Security Type: None (Checkmark “required sign-in”)
    Username: XXXX@yahoo.com (enter your complete yahoo email address again)
    Password: enter your yahoo email password again
    6. Touch Next
    7. Fill out your personal information (Name etc.)
    –If you are having problems be sure that WiFi is OFF then try again

    How to set up Hotmail POP3:

    1. From the home screen, touch the applications tab (at the bottom of the screen)
    2. Touch Mail
    3. Touch Manual Setup at the bottom left corner
    4. In the incoming server settings, enter the details as follows:
    Username: XXXX@hotmail.com (enter your complete hotmail address)
    Password: enter your hotmail password
    POP3 server: pop3.live.com
    Port: 995
    Security type: SSL
    5. Touch Next to continue to SMTP Server Settings and enter the details as follows:
    SMTP server: smtp.live.com
    Port: 587
    Security type: TLS
    –Check mark “Require sign-in”
    Username: XXXX@hotmail.com (enter your complete hotmail address again)
    Password: enter your hotmail password again
    6. Touch Next
    7. Fill out your personal information (Name etc.)
    –If you are having problems be sure that WiFi is OFF then try again
