How about signing into Yahoo! Mail manually and allowing it store your
login cookie? Next time you launch the browser and go to
it will open your mailbox.
Using Yahoo! Messenger (or Gaim) it will pop up a window to tell you
that you have new email and you can click on the 'Go to mail' button.
What are you trying to achieve here? Less typing?
