    Yahoo mail is stored 'in the cloud', you would need to install an email client to download your email from Yahoo!

    If you want a portable software, try Thunderbird portable from here: http://portableapps.com/apps/interne...rbird_portable

    Note:
    Using Thunderbird with Webmail (Hotmail, Yahoo, etc)

    You can use Thunderbird and Thunderbird Portable with many popular webmail providers by using the Webmail Extension. It allows you to connect to Hotmail, Yahoo, Lycos, mail.com, Gmail, Libero and AOL. Details on installing and configuring as well as a support forum are all linked to from their homepage. Just be sure to remember that, like most mail clients, Thunderbird is configured to download and remove your mail from the server by default. If you don't want that to happen, update your account settings after setting up your account (and before checking your email).

    You could set up Yahoo mail as an IMAP account by following the instructions here:

    Its intended for mobile apps but I was able to use the settings to make it work in Windows Live Mail.
