Are you using a Yahoo international account?  What Yahoo POP server did you use?  pop.mail.yahoo.com

What port number?

What log in name?  Full Yahoo address.

Hello, I'm having the same problem, with three addresses hosted with Yahoo! Small Business, using the configuration settings on Yahoo's web site to the T. It worked for a similar test address 3 days ago (same domain), but now when it comes time to migrate all the others' its not working. * VERY * FRUSTRATING *. I'd be highly appreciative of any solutions.

Verify that you have set up Mail Fetcher correctly

POP3 server should be pop.mail.yahoo.com
port is 110
Leave a copy on server

Login name should be your full email address.

hi,
yahoo's pop3 server is NOT free, that's why. if you have yahoo plus it would allow you to set up.
if you open a new gmail account it allows you to get yahoo mail without pop3, so it works. 
I cant do it with my old account and I m trying to solve it now.
I hope this helps...

gezginfurn, Yahoo international accounts have always been free. Try Yahoo UK or Yahoo Canada.  And now Yahoo is allowing free POP3 accounts for US customers.  It is being roll out and there has been no official announcement. But I have a POP3 now in my Yahoo.com account.

wár17 § you must be one of the lucky ones at this point because I tried it today (6/25/09) here in Michigan and I get the following message: "Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password. POP access is limited to Yahoo! Mail Plus subscribers. Please contact Yahoo! Mail's support team for more information."

Unless it's a Yahoo Plus account, it will not forward. I have four yahoo accounts, one of which I got when I created a webpage (before GeoCities shut down). The professional email (the plus account, as they call it), is the only one that will forward. I'm sorry lovelies, it just WONT happen. 
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? wár17 § 6/27/09 8:01 AM
ashleymbiggs, I am not talking about auto forward.  I am talking about POP3 access.
 
Some free Yahoo.com will download emails via POP to email client. Mine does.  Other friends of mine do.  If you check your account, some of them may have POP access.
 
Yahoo international accounts except India and Australia always had free POP access.  Yahoo is rolling out free POP access to US users.

Umm, can you help me? Mine are chic...@sbcglobal.net and aa...@sbcglobal.net
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? wár17 § 7/8/09 1:06 PM
squeery, for POP server use pop.mail.yahoo.com, port 995, SSL enabled.
Login should be your full email SBC address.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? squeery 7/13/09 2:14 PM
I've tried what you said, but it still won't work. Is it because this is a sub account of another I have? Do you know if you can import from a sub account? Or should I just import from the master account? I only want the stuff from the one I mentioned earlier.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? ashleymbiggs 8/5/09 10:04 AM
If you're in the US, and have a STANDARD account (one that you did NOT pay for), your emails cannot be forwarded. Yahoo! in the US has two services, standard and plus. The Plus service offers Email forwarding, at a cost of 19.99/year. See below:


I was able to do it with a premium account I had purchased for a website, before GeoCities shut down. 

As far as POP 3 access goes, you have to pay for it, too. The American accounts are not yet set up with free POP 3 access, that's why Email Fetcher will not work. I emailed Yahoo! about it, and they told me that there is a fee involved in "standard free accounts." Don't ask me why. Here is their info: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/mailplus/pop/pop-35.html;_ylt=AjfXC3FD7QxqImjvB3vPbc8KzyN4

ashleymbiggs, Yahoo is starting to roll out free POP3/SMTP access.  I have it on my free Yahoo.com address. Some of my friends do not have it yet.

FINALLY: I get that an ordinary Yahoo account does not have free server access, although it MAY be available sometime in the future.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? tctjohnm 12/7/09 7:28 AM
When I attempt to import, I go through the steps to import, it takes my account name, my password then I enter.  It comes up with another screen to sign into the other account, but the I get.....  "Could not validate this combination of email address and password." 
 
I know I've entered the correct information, I use the other account all the time.
 
It does see my POP username as well as pop.mail.yahoo.ca and port 995
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? wár17 § 12/7/09 9:58 AM
Use server pop.mail.yahoo.com, not pop.mail.yahoo.ca 
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? tctjohnm 12/7/09 10:11 AM
I tried pop.mail.yahoo.com again, but it does not work either.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? wár17 § 12/7/09 10:19 AM
Use full email address, not just password.

Verify that SSL is enabled.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? tctjohnm 12/7/09 11:43 AM
Yes, Step one, it prompts for address. 
 
Hit enter, then it prompts for password.
 
Then another page opens (see copy and paste below) asks for password again, but it won't accept my password.
 
*************
 
Enter the password for tctj...@yahoo.ca:
 
 
Your password will be stored securely and deleted after we've finished importing your mail.

Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? wár17 § 12/7/09 11:49 AM
Enable SSL. 
Change port to 995
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? tctjohnm 12/8/09 7:15 AM
When I tried again, port 995 was indicated and SSL enabled.
 
Same problem though, Gmail import won't recognize my yahoo account and password combination.

I have the problem tctjohnm has. I have an @rocketmail address
What do I do?


Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? Palette 8-Bit 1/18/10 8:48 AM
I also have the same problem tctjohnm has.  "Could not validate this combination of email address and password." keeps popping up, unless I mess up the pop3, in which case I get the error message "Gmail couldn't identify your POP server. Please enter your POP server information below."
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? wár17 § 1/18/10 9:16 AM
Gmail will not import @rocketmail address.  It will import @yahoo.com address
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? tctjohnm 2/8/10 10:30 AM
Still no luck with my yahoo.ca account.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? irp1512 5/12/10 9:11 AM
I am using a @yahoo.com account and although it was working fine it suddenly stopped importing my mail into my gmail account. I have used all the permutations of suggestions above but does not work. Any ideas? Has anyone cracked it or is it limited to yahoo!Mail Plus subscribers only?
 
Thanks

What feature are you using to import Yahoo mail?

1. Import emails and contacts
2. Check mail using POP3

If using the former, Gmail only imports emails for the first 30 days.

If using the latter, you need to enable Yahoo POP3 access.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? artytom 8/28/10 12:37 PM
Hello war17 §
The problem which Pallette 8bit and tctjohnm are having is the same as mine.

I have two yahoo accounts.
soi...@yahoo.com
ar...@yahoo.com

I pay for hosting with Yahoo for the ar...@tombyrne.com account.
I have followed all of Gmails instructions for importing emails. It works fine on the Soi...@yahoo.com account.

It does not work at all on the ar...@tombyrne.com account.

I see no way to set the transfer to Gmail using POP3 so I assume that this is happening automatically.

I have changed the settings for the port to 995 and enabled "USE SSL"

I entered the correct password. It's the same password for both the soilsiu@ and the arty@ accounts. There is no way to differentiate.

Have tried this many times.
It does not work.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? wár17 § 9/19/10 7:52 AM
rafa, you select the option Check mail using POP3. POP3 will download only Inbox mail, and no contacts.

 
Check the option Import mail and contacts. I am not sure it will work with Yahoo.au.

Use Trueswitch - free if importing to Gmail

Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? sws.jtd 12/4/10 7:58 AM
I have a Yahoo Plus account.(yahoo.com) I set up gmail to import my yahoo emails and contacts. It worked perfectly. However, on November 11, 2010, it stopped working and I can't get it setup again. I am using the correct POP3 port of 995 and tried the SMTP port of 465. Nothing will bring it back.
Re: Why can't I import emails from a yahoo mail account to my gmail account? wár17 § 12/4/10 8:19 AM
if you use Import mail and contacts feature, you can download all your mail and contacts once, then new mail for next 30 days, if you selected that option during setup.

 
If you use Check mail using POP3 option, you should be able to download new mail. Try alternate server mail.pop.yahoo.com, port 995, SSL enabled.
