Thanks Marisa, however:

Inputing results in the following error:

Server error "-ERR popgate unknown command."

But I am with yahoo canada, so if Plus were available in Canada, it should be, which results in this error when trying to get mail:

Couldn't resolve IP address ""

But, "Plus" is a paid service with yahoo for those in the US. I have a free Canadian account. So my address is When just the latter is entered into the pop server info in Owner Info, the ERR message comes up:

"-ERR popgate unknown command."

When appending the port number onto, so it ends up being connects to Yahoo, but nothing is downloaded. This makes sense here, because adding this port number means I am trying to access my mail with SSL, something the Newton cannot do. But my mission here is to access yahoo without using SSL, and as far as I know, the only way to do that is to drop the port number off the pop server address, which results in the error "-ERR popgate unknown command."

Any suggestions, anyone?



PS: Gmail has proven to be a bag of smashed hammers so far, both IMAP and POP, on both Simple Mail and Mail V.
