As far as I am aware you must use the paid version of Yahoo mail in order to get POP3 capability.

According to Yahoo

The ability to access Yahoo! Mail using an email reader program such as Outlook, Eudora, or Thunderbird is only available to customers of our premium Yahoo! Mail Plus service. To determine whether you have purchased this service, please visit the My Services page.
