How do I sync Outlook 2007 with my Yahoo Mail account?

I have a Yahoo Mail account that I would like to view from Outlook 2007.

How do I import or Sync these two systems and will I lose my ability to
still view my Yahoo Mail account on-line?

Only a few regional domains of Yahoo permit access to their mail servers by
freebie accounts. If you are using a free Yahoo Mail account, and if you
are not using those freebie domains, did you PAY to get access to Yahoo's
mail servers?

As I recall (but did not check), the yahoo.co.uk and yahoo.co.au domains
still permit access to Yahoo's mail servers by freebie accounts. The
yahoo.com domain requires you pay for their service to get access to their
mail servers.

I think yahoo.fr does as well....

I use Ypops, http://ypopsemail.com/ seems to do the trick for Outlook 2007

HTH

I used YahooPOPs for about 3 years. Eventually I gave up on it because it
is too flaky and way too susceptible to Yahoo making changes in their web
pages. About twice per week, the ypops process became unresponsive and had
to be killed and restarted. When Yahoo changes their web pages or the
navigation between them, you had to wait until the YPOPs author got around
to making a fix. YPOPs is a screen scraping and URL navigating utility so
if anything changes on the web site then YPOPs stops working. While it
works, it isn't very reliable. There are way too many other choices for
free e-mail services that provide POP/IMAP/SMTP access to waste time with
Yahoo simply because they yanked POP/SMTP access and still refuse to resume
those access methods despite being left in the dust by other free e-mail
providers.
