    It can read POP mailboxes, including gmail. Is that what you mean?

    Don't ever, ever, ever use outlook. Just don't do it. Never ever ever.

    For yahoo, if you have a premium account then you can configure it to work with thunderbird with ease. However, if you have a free account, then you will need a program like yahoopops, or something similiar. Here is a thread for thunderbird that has links to some of the program websites. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=53174 [Broken]

    Don't forget that you have to be invited to use the pop3 service from google.

    I have only had gmail for a few weeks now, but all I had to do was go into, I think, settings and change an option to enable pop3.
