Yahoo works well with Thunderbird, I have it working perfectly fine.
First you need to activate POP mail under settings in the web based mail reader. Then setup of Thunderbird:
Incoming server (pop3): pop.mail.yahoo.com
Outgoing server (smtp): smtp.mail.yahoo.com
This setup works fine for me, I have not my computer with Thunderbird at hand now, but I can upload some screenshots if you want it.
In general, the following steps are used to install a tarball:
1. For a GZipped tarball: tar –zxvf filename.tar.gz (or filename.tgz)
2. For a BZipped tarball: tar jzvf filename.tar.bz (or filename.tbz)
5. (as root) make install
tar –zxvf YoSucker-pr81.tar.gz
tar: invalid option --
Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.
First you need to activate pop mail on Yahoo Mail. Login and press Settings (Sorry, I have it on Norwegian, so I don't know how it will appear if you have another language). From there click on Pop-access and forwarding, then just activate the check box next to "Web and POP access". Now your POP account should be activated.
