I've had a yahoo email address for quite a while, but have only used it for certain purposes and have always accessed it on the web. apart from that I have always used my ISP's email servers for all personal stuff on my pc via outlook express (under win xp) , which I want to retain as email client, because it's simple and good but I want to start accessing yahoo mail from my pc, and sending via yahoo as an option. I've tried something called YPOPs, version 0.9.7.3, but it just doesn't do the job, so can someone advise me if there are better options ?
Time to start thinking for the future. OE is not available on Win7 or later so you might like to think about using a different client. I use Pegasus but there are lots available, if you use MS Office then Outlook is a very good client.
hey, thanks for those links, basically giving the same info , but doesn't seem to work for me - it looks like it's working then just keeps asking for my password, which I've obviously rechecked.......my yahoo email address is a .com, but my isp is a uk satellite provider address, so should I still be using .co.uk in the pop and smtp addresses or what ?
I know OE is old hat but it aint broke and I prefer it to Outlook.....but I will take a look at Pegasus. I actually have a win7 netbook, but reluctantly use Thunderbuird there, mainly to be able to access my local folders and keep up with email when travelling.
