I've found it's easier to just have the mail at yahoo sent to my inbox
on my mail client.

This way, I don't have to go log into yahoo mail to get my mail... all
mailcomes to one place.

smtp and pop can be setup there as well, as long as you look at some
advertising crap.
gmail has the same feature.

adblock plus as an add-on for Firefox when you're out and about on the
world wide woller, spam-filting programs for you local client...

I'm just saying.. there are better ways.
