      Couple of options:
      1. set Yahoo! mail as your default home page and put your browsers exe file in startup
      2. Create an internet shortcut and put that in your startup

      On a related note, when you login make sure that the check box that says "Keep me signed in for two weeks" is checked (I'm assuming that this is not a shared computer). Also don't logout, just close the browser.

      Hope this helps.

      Agree with Craig on that one. One other advantage is that you lose all the toolbars and status bars, so more of the screen is taken up by the application. Only disadvantage is that links still end up opening up in Firefox (or whatever browser) and this sometimes creates a lag, though i wonder whether that reflects more my tight RAM situation... .

      You could also run Y!Mail in a Site-Specific Browser, like Prism. The purpose of these programs is to allow you to run a single website, like Yahoo! Mail, as if it was its own application. The "application" that is created you could run on your Microsoft Windows startup.

      I have found Site-Specific Browser apps to be very useful for web sites which you would otherwise leave running all day long, like Mail.

      Hope this is helpful,

      It's not possible to have Yahoo Mail run at startup, because it's not a
      program installed on your computer. It's only webmail, therefore you
      must first open your browser & log in to Yahoo Mail. You can have Yahoo
      Mail as your browser homepage, but that's all you can do.
