It could be that Yahoo changed something on their end that broke the YPOPS plugin. It's not unreasonable to expect that Yahoo prefers people to spend $35/year, rather than use a free workaround.
Do you mean the Yahoo! Mail Plus service? I have it and paid $19.99/year, which comes out to about $1.67/month.

To the OP: I've tried YPOPS before. I stopped using it after a short while because downloading mail into my Outlook program was agonizingly S L O W!!! Especially since my Yahoo! account gets hundreds of messages a week since I belong to a lot of online forums and I get the posts via e-mail.

Good choice! I have a couple of Gmail accounts also and love the fact that their POP/IMAP service is FREE, unlike Yahoo's. Gmail's spam filtering is also excellent.
