To set up your Yahoo! Mail account in Mozilla Thunderbird Version 3:

    From the File menu | select File | New.
    Select Mail Account.
    - "Mail Account Setup" opens.
    Fill in your account details as follows:
    - Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear in email (for example, Jo Bloggs).
    - Email address: Type your full Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example, jo.bloggs@yahoo.com)
    - Password: Enter your Yahoo! Mail account password.
    Select Next or Continue, depending upon your operating system.
    - Thunderbird will display settings for your account.
    Select Manual Setup.
    On the "Server Settings" page:
    - Server Name: Change the Server Name to pop.mail.yahoo.com (with or without "plus." at the beginning, depending on your account type).
    - Incoming User Name: Ensure that the Incoming User Name is your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com" at the end).
    - To leave email on the server: If you want to leave your mail on the server after you have downloaded it, select Leave messages on server and Until I delete them.
    Scroll down to the bottom of the left column of the "Account Settings" window and select Outgoing Server (SMTP)
    In the right half of the pane, select the Yahoo! Mail SMTP server.
    Select Edit.
    - The "SMTP Server" window opens.
    Make any settings changes that are needed:
    - Server Name: Change the Server Name to smtp.mail.yahoo.com (with or without "plus." at the beginning, depending on your account type).
    - Port: Use port 465 with SSL or port 587 with SSL/TLS.
    - Check the Use name and password checkbox.
    - User Name: Ensure that the User Name is your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
    - Connection Security: Ensure that the Connection Security is SSL/TLS for Outgoing SMTP server.
    Select OK to save and close.
    Select OK again to close the "Account Settings" window.

You are now set up to send and receive Yahoo! Mail using Thunderbird

I think Yahoo must be a Premium Account for Outlook to access it. It is quite possible that the same restriction applies to Thunderbird.

A standard Gmail account allows you to use Outlook to access it. I have done that for clients. So then, since you can use Outlook with Gmail, I assume that Thunderbird will also work just fine.

Thunderbird works fine with GMail for me. For Yahoo, maybe the developers were smart enough to block any use of Yahoo accounts. (Just kidding! ...mostly.)
