    Hello,
    I am new to PDA's and just got the 650 about 5-6 days ago. I tried to connect to Yahoo using Versa Mail, and it would not let me. I called up Palm, who were for the most part completely helpless, and foud out that they said I need to subsrcibe to Yahoo (plus/premium) to get some type of "pop, etc." account. It there a way to hook up my versamail to my yahoo account w/o just going into the web to the yahoo home page? Help please.
    Thanks

    No, yahoo requires a paid premuim subscription to access their POP/smtp servers. I have a subscription and that's how I check my yahoo mail. However, you can also check your email via the wap portal:

    http://wap.oa.yahoo.com

    Then there are also desktop redirectors like Yahoo POP and etc...

    No, the wap portal only allows you to check your yahoo mail via Blazer etc.

    The desktop redirector I was referring to is YPops:

    http://yahoopops.sourceforge.net/index.php

    It bypassed the subscription fees for yahoo pop service, but requires you to run this app in the backround on your workstation 24/7...

    Hey G funk,

    Thanks for the ypops link, i am going to check it out. My yahoo e-mail is so emeshed in my life it is hard to switch over to the gmail account. If I understand, i need to upload the ypops program to my desktop and then I can get the e-mails? Anything else i should know how to do with the treo that is pretty cool? I just ordered a gig card, so I hope to be able to save what i want. Not sure what programs i should use, etc?

    jrs
