How? What MUA did you use? When I initially set up my Yahoo Mail accounts (I have several)--this was years ago--there was no option with the free accounts for POP3 or IMAP. It was specifically said that if you wanted it, you could, for a small yearly fee--I think it was $20 or $25 US--get it.
I've just been to one of my Yahoo accounts and I can't find any info on POP or SMTP server names, etc. Maybe, Yahoo is different in the UK. I'll continue to investigate.
