    Short answer is you cant using the free version short of forwarding all your emails to a Pop account residing on your computer. The other alternative is to get a paid account and use pop to download to your computer. You would probably have to have a paid account for each of the three accounts unless you forward each email in the other accounts.

    Leo Notenboom covered this topic recently in an article titled "How do I backup my Yahoo! Mail?". Link is below. There are some reader comments after his article which you may find useful, too.

    Useful information. I used the instruction to add my throwaway Yahoo account to Windows Live Mail along with my throwaway Hotmail account. Thanks.
