Thanks for the suggestion Ziyad, I got fetchyahoo from synaptic and have
it installed.  I can run it from the command line, but that isnt what I
want to do... Basically, here is my problem.  I have never used
evolution or anything similar so I dont really know how to set these
things up.  I dont know how to set up a local directory or what to put
in for the pop servers or SMTP outgoing server or anything like that....
I hate to be such a noob and baby about this, but if someone wouldnt
mind explaining quickly what to do I would greatly appreciate it!  Thank
you guys, this forum is a saviour for noobs like me!
