I like the ease of clicking on my thunderbird icon on ubuntu desktop and immediately getting mail. I am a ATT Yahoo DSL customer who pays considerably for broadband and will not be allowed to access my yahoo mail elsewhere.
Please whether the suggestion is command line ferch yahoo or YPOPS installation I need to know by the numbers from someone who has used it exactly what to do. Will thunderbird recognize one of these or do I have to direct a path or what ever.
The e-mail that follows is typical of my problem from their perspective.

Dear AT&T Yahoo! Customer:

We noticed that you are accessing email using non-secure settings in your email software.

We would like to ensure that your AT&T Yahoo! Member ID, password, and email messages are transmitted securely
between your mail software (such as Outlook or Outlook Express) and the
AT&T Yahoo! Mail servers. In order to meet this need, please enable
SSL via the instructions that are available on the Help site.  

Since multiple email notifications have already been sent out about this, we request that you please
make the necessary changes immediately. Remember, you need to make
these changes if you want to continue to send/receive email using a
mail client.

Thank you so much fot your kind attention
