Thunderbird, hotmail and yahoo

Can anyone tell me how to collect both hotmail and yahoo mail via ThunderBird please? When using Becky I used yahoo pops and a special plugin for Becky but now I have to use yahoopops and hotmail popper - the problem here is that both have TBird settings as localhost and there is an irreconcilable conflict as best as I can see.

Any thoughts very welcome. Dio.

Any takers?

Might be a bit weak as a suggestion...but is there anything for you on the forum connected to T'bird?

Not that PCAdvisor isn't capable of helping!

Thanks Nick; yahoogroups have a TBird group and someone there suggested MrPostman from sourceforge so I am thinking of giving that a go.

I've used MrPostman since Thursday and it seems to be doing the job - a little slow at times, but works great.

I've managed to get my yahoo mail into thunerbird
but not my hotmail
pop.mail.yahoo.com
smtp.mail.yahoo.com.

Aren't hotmail dropping support for downloading mail into e-mail programs, unless you subscribe to their premium service?

Having said that I think Thunderbird can only hjandle POP mail anyway.

MrPostman is doing the job nicely...
