well I can't help you with the yahoo failure...

but I want to interject on the second comment.  You never "receieve" or "read" the email's.  you simply use the web page to display email's located on the email server.  You should be able to delete the emails.  In order to not have old emails show you will have to insert the email's into a DB where you could then mark them "read" or file them any way you wish.

Also....if you posted some of your code that deals with the CFPOP and CFMAIL tags that would problably help more

Also make sure you have the username and password included in the CFMAIL tag.  Or what exactly is the error you're getting?

Yahoo will not allow spamming like that to bounce off of their servers: smtp.mail.yahoo.com - will never work.  You need to either setup SMTP on your server or pay for a service.
