Has anyone had any luck getting OSX Mail app. to work with MSN email accounts? Or Yahoo accounts? Or any other email accounts? I am at a loss to know what the heck info I need to input to make Mail connect to these email servers to download my email.

I tried the plug-in with both MSN and Yahoo. The computer recognized the mailbox-however it failed to connect and download mail. What should I be entering in as POP? I'm putting mail.(msn or yahoo).com. Could someone advise me on the proper setup? Thanks!

Not sure but I think yahoo is pop.yahoo.com incoming and smtp.yahoo.com outgoing.

From what I remember you also have to enable pop somewhere in your yahoo mail settings. MSN I dont know the settings they're probably the same but where yahoo is msn try googling.

Good luck.

For Hotmail I think you choose the new HTTP option, then for mail servers put in just 'hotmail.com'.
