You have to purchase Yahoo Mail Plus. It is $19.99 per year and offers 2GB of space. Yahoo Mail Plus also allows POP access.

You can also go with Google's Gmail which is free, offers POP access, and offers 1GB of space.

The Thunderbird Tutorial tells you how to set up your POP3, SMTP settings. However before this will work for yahoo, you need to set up your account to allow the client access. This is done by subscribing to their marketing (No such thing as a free lunch ) rubbish. You can navigate to this via:

Login -> Mail Options -> Pop Access and Forwarding -> Subscribe.

For your settings have a look at the link "View POP Settings" under the "POP Access & Forwarding" page. You should see something like this:

Server Settings
Incoming Mail Server (POP3): pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk
Or your ISP's SMTP server address [What's this?]
Account Name/Username: ZootsAllures
Email address: ZootsAllures@yahoo.co.uk
Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password

Jesse, I've done this for free - however I am in the UK. Maybe it is different for people with USA accounts.

I can't see the following option in my yahoo
Login -> Mail Options -> Pop Access and Forwarding -> Subscribe.

under Mail options there is no "Pop Access and Forwarding" -> Subscribe.
