Fix the window asking you for passwords in Mail when using MacFreePOPs

A solution I discovered is that updating your plug-in for the service you are using (say, Yahoo or Hotmail). You can download the latest version:
http://www.freepops.org/en/viewplugin.php?plugin=yahoo.lua

Download the file. If it opens in your browser instead, open the Downloads window and drag the link from the address bar in. Open MFP (MacFreePOPs). Click the Extra Options disclosure triangle, and click the Plug-Ins tab. Click "Show Plug-Ins Folder". Quit MFP. Go to Finder and drag the downloaded file into the folder MFP openend, and click Replace when prompted. Open MFP and try again.

If you're lucky, everything should work. If it doesn't, check back some time to see if a new version of the plug-in. The next version of MFP will have automatic plug-in updating. Yes!
