Email Setup - Yahoo Mail

I am using a BB 8800.

I am not able to add yahoo mail to my BB.

When I try to add a yahoo account I get the following message




To add your Yahoo!® email account, you must first enable POP (Post Office Protocol) access within Yahoo!. To enable POP access within Yahoo!, click here to open Yahoo!'s support page and follow the instructions. Once you have enabled POP access to your Yahoo! account, return to this page.

>>I have enabled POP access to my Yahoo! email account and want to add it.

Re: Email Setup - Yahoo Mail

Perhaps this statement, from within the link provided above, might be an indicator?


The ability to access Yahoo! Mail via a POP3 email client (such as Outlook or Outlook Express) is only available to customers of our premium Yahoo! Mail Plus service. 


If you have not purchased the Yahoo! Mail Plus service, you will be unable to retrieve messages via an email client. To determine whether or not you have purchased this service, please visit the My Services page.
