Which e-mail client are you using (Outlook Express?) and who is your account with?

I am with Virgin and the servers are named mail.virgin.net (for both send and receive)

It also accepts pop.virgin.net and smtp.virgin.net for the pop3 and smtp servers respectively.

As Vog says, tell us the name of your ISP and someone will know the names.

As far as I know you cannot use a yahoo email address with Outlook or Outlook express. (although if I am wrong, someone will soon say so). You have to log in to yahoo and then mail. Your log in details are usually the names before the @ sign.i.e [email protected] you would put in "joeblooggs" then the password you have chosen. That will take you to your mail.
