Yep, a whole bunch of 'em.  Most of them run as a daemon in the background, 
pretending to be a pop3 server that your normal mail client can download 
from.  Some do Yahoo, some do Hotmail, some do both.  

Ones I'm aware of off the top of my head:

YahooPops - does Yahoo -

hotwayd - does hotmil -

Your distro may already have packages for them.  I can't recall the one that 
does both Hotmail and Yahoo, but a little Google should track it down.
