    If you use Windows you can use Microsoft Outlook Express or Mozilla Thunderbird to retrieve email. Its easy, follow this step:

    (from yahoo mail help)

    f you want to POP your Yahoo! Mail Plus into Outlook 2002 or 2003, here's how:

    1. From the Tools menu, select "Email Accounts."

    2. Select the radio button next to "Add a new email account" and click the "Next" button.

    3. Select the radio button next to "POP3" and click the "Next" button.

    4. Enter the following information:

    User Information

    * Your Name: Enter your name as you'd like it to appear in the "From" field of your outgoing messages.

    * Email Address: Enter your full Yahoo! Mail address (for example, "user@yahoo.com").

    Server Information

    * Incoming mail server (POP3): pop.mail.yahoo.com

    * Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.mail.yahoo.com

    Login Information

    * User Name: Enter your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").

    * Password: Enter your Yahoo! password.

    5. Do not check the box next to "Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)."

    6. Click the "More Settings" box and select the "Outgoing Server" tab.

    7. Check the box next to "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication."

    8. Click the “Advanced” tab.

    9. Under “Incoming Server (POP3)”, check the box next to “This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)". The port number in the “Incoming Server (POP3)" field should automatically change from 110 to 995. If it doesn’t, make sure the port number is set to 995.

    10. Under “Outgoing Server (SMTP)”, check the box next to “This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL). Enter port number “465” in the “Outgoing Server (SMTP)” field.

    11. If you'd like to keep a copy of your email messages on the Yahoo! Mail server, click the "Advanced" tab. Check the box next to "Leave a copy of messages on the server." If you want to delete your messages from the Yahoo! Mail server after viewing them in Outlook, don't check the box.

    12. Click the "OK" button.

    13. Click the "Next" button on the Email Account Wizard, then click "Finished."

    One way would be to go into your account settings on your computer within your email program at home and select "Leave a copy of messages on the server." This will leave a copy of your messages on your mail server with your ISP. From work all you will need to do is access the Internet and log into your Webmail and then you can see your messages.

    Hope this helps!
