Connecting to pop.bizmail.yahoo.com ...
13 could not connect to the host "pop.bizmail.yahoo.com": Permission denied
(a) I have tried with port 110 and tls=0 (set it in this file as well as pop3.php), with same error.
(b) I am able to download emails to Outlook Express, using "pop.bizmail.yahoo.com" and port 995. This indicates pop server is not the issue here.
Thanks in advance for you help. (code below).
/* Uncomment when using SASL authentication mechanisms */
echo "<PRE>Connected to the POP3 server "".$pop3->hostname."".</PRE>\n";

I think you may be using incorrect authentication credentials or authentication mechanism. According to the Yahoo documentation you should be using the Yahoo user ID as POP3 user, so it does not include any @ character and domain name.
I do not have a bizmail account to test but it could connect to either port 110 or port 995 with TLS (security) option enabled.
At least for non-TLS connections, you probably may not use the regular USER mechanism because passwords are passed as plain text.
In that case you need to set the authentication_mechanism variable to empty string and uncomment the sasl.php include line, so the class can negotiate a more secure authentication mechanism.

Pl. could you list your tried sample lines, I executed with the following and still getting the permission denied error (I also tried uncommenting sasl.php, tls=1, authentication_mechanism=""....same error).
