The cheapest and easiest method is to upgrade to Yahoo Mail Plus for $20/yr
You can then configure your MAC email client to download your POP emails.
A very important warning is to set your email client to "leave a copy of mail on server" otherwise all of your email will be cleared out from the Yahoo mail server and it will be very difficult to get it back if not impossible!
