Using poplib to access Yahoo Mail

I tried using poplib to connect to pop.mail.yahoo.com to connect to my
Yahoo mail account. I get an error saying please check yahoo.com for the
error.. etc. And when I log in to my account (using a web browser), I
get an email saying, "you tried to access Yahoo's pop3 email service,
which is no longer free .. please subscribe ".. etc.
The point is, when I use a software called poppeeper
(http://www.poppeeper.com), to check _new_ messages in my inbox it works
!! I do not get any email from Yahoo !
I wrote to the developer of poppeeper asking how he accessed the yahoo
account, and his approach seems to be the same (via pop.mail.yahoo.com) !
Is it a problem with the poplib module implementation ?
That said, my objective is to backup all my yahoo emails (around 212
messages) onto disk, before I run out of space. Poppeeper does not (yet)
meet my requirements....
Any help is greatly appreciated,
