Yahoo mail through outlook express
« on: December 08, 2008, 06:00:45 PM »
 ok so if you have a free yahoo account and outlook express, why not make them work together! there are 2 ways to do this
1.) get a premium mail account from yahoo (but who would want to pay when there is a free solution!?)

2.) get a program called ypops
How to use ypops
for this I will be using outlook express 2007 but its easy to figure out with a different version

1.)download it from here http://ypopsemail.com/download/36-releases/66-download

2.)install it and make shure its running in the system tray

3.)open outlook express and go to tools>account settings>new... and click next

4.)tick the box that says manually configure server settings or additional server types and hit next and then hit next again

5.)Now put in your name in the name box, email in the email box

6.)make shure POP3 is selected under account type

7.)in the incoming mail server box type 127.0.0.1 now type the same thing in the outgoing mail server box

8.)under login info put your yahoo username (dont put the @yahoo)  and put your password

9.)click on the more settings button and go under the outgoing server tab

10.)then tick the box my outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and then hit ok

11.)click test account setting to make shure its working and then click next then finish

there you go! yahoo mail on outlook express for free!! ;D ;D

If I understand the question (i doubt I do) your asking if you can use other email sites besides yahoo? The answers no

i know its hard for us old people to explain ourselves , i think you do understand

my main e-mail is yahoo and i want to keep it , i try on some sites to send material by e-mail , and the only one allowed is outlook which asks you to make it your main e-mail , so i stop

what i'm trying to do is copy material from an e-mail etc and post it in CH or else where


hope thats better , so i take it the answer is still no , harry
