well, it is telling you that you have the wrong password - that seems pretty self-explanatory.  If I were you, I would check and double-check my entries for user name, password, and be sure they are spelled correctly, and use the correct case.

you should be alright - as long as you have the correct username, password, and pop address (are you sure it is pop.mail.yahoo.com?)   Also, you may want to try using your username in different manners (for example, if your email is johndoe@yahoo.com, try both johndoe and johndoe@yahoo.com as your username)
