Yeah, my main e-mail account is Yahoo, has been for years, but I recently found out about Thunderbird and Outlook. I am pretty sure my laptop has Outlook on it, but I am away from home right now, so I can't be sure. Problem is, only the expensive yahoo mail client works with it. Is there any legal way to make them work together? Maybe an option to forward a COPY of all my mail to a different e-mail address, so that I can then use it? I still want all the mail to be in my Yahoo account too, for when I am travelling. A friend of mine told me about YPOPS, which I tried, but it would delete all my Yahoo mail from my normal account. Maybe a way to have it just make a copy of the mail? I am pretty sure that it is ok to ask about this, since YPOPS falls well within the realm of legality, but please correct me if I am wrong.
Also, what about folders I have in Yahoo mail? A large portion of my e-mails are from a certian friend of mine, and I set up my Yahoo account to automatically filter them to a specific folder. Is there any way to have Thunderbird/Outlook do the same, so they don't just get jumbled in with the rest of the mail?
Sorry if the questions are rather basic, I just learned about these programs recently and don't really know how to use them that well yet.
