    It was lucky, I just found the access for POP and FORWARDING setting, but should upgrade to Mail Plus which have to pay for the account.
    What a pity? 🙁

    It’s now 6th December 2009 and still no POP forwarding. Get this message:

    “Pardon our appearance during construction.

    We’re still tweaking the Yahoo! Mail POP & Forwarding option. Temporarily you’ll need to access it through the Yahoo! Mail Classic interface. But, rest assured, any changes made will take effect once you’ve reloaded the Yahoo! Mail.”

    What a load off bullcrap.

    I’m in the UK, just for the record.

    You have to upgrade to their paid account in order to set up a POP/IMAP as the article mentions. Very lame yahoo! No wonder Gmail is kicking your teeth in.. lol
