Need to have specified that you want to use POP access for your Yahoo account before you can get to it with something like Thunderbird. Same thing applies for GMail.

The ability to access Yahoo! Mail via a POP3 email client (such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird) is only available to customers of the premium Yahoo! Mail Plus service. If you have a free Yahoo account it isn't going to happen basically, as Yahoo changed this years ago.

Gmail, you need to log in and tell it you want to use POP3 access before you can use it. Log in and go to Settings -> Forwarding and POP.
