Windows 7: Thunderbird 24.0.1 - Import Yahoo Mail Folders, Contacts & Yahoo Mail

Thunderbird 24.0.1 - Import Yahoo Mail Folders, Contacts & Yahoo Mail

The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open. Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to Mozilla's Thunderbird v 24.0.1 on my Win7-64 desktop and my wife's Win7-64 laptop. She uses the paid version of Yahoo and I'm on the free version.

Once I get Thunderbird going, does anyone know how I can:
  1. get mail addressed to me at Yahoo forwarded to me in Thunderbird?
  2. import my Yahoo contacts into Thunderbird?
  3. import my Yahoo folders and their contacts into Thunderbird?
I'm not a techie, so I'd greatly appreciate learning how I can go about this. Thanks in advance.

Jerry...

It worked perfectly to copy my contacts from Yahoo to Thunderbird (thank you), and T is able to acquire all new incoming mail from Y.

It does NOT allow you to copy or move folders or folder contents from Y to T.

So my solution is to let T emulate Y in sending, acquiring, forwarding, replying, while retaining the Y account. I'll just access and handle all the new stuff on T and only go to Y when I need to look up previous info.

Thank you for your assistance. Greatly appreciated.
