If you are using a yahoo.com email then you have to pay to use POP3 access.

If you are using a yahoo.co.uk all you have to do is turn on the POP3 access in the yahoo options.

Any luck with the settings yet.??
I know it's a long shot but have you tried reinstalling the program.?
(could be a corrupt version).

If you still can't get your yahoo account to work with Thunderbird, try it with a program called PostBox Express.
