Sorry, its a beginner question but I changed to broadband recently and opened a yahoo adress because the old wanadoo address was not sending anymore. I want to continue making use of outlook express (version 6) and made a new account as described by yahoo. The correct pop3 and smtp server added and the correct username and password (works when going to yahoo direct). However when trying to send emails the login pop-up appears all the time and doesn't accept my username and password. I do have ZoneAlarm, but when disconnecting it there is no change.
I will add, if you want to use the free account with email clients like IE6, you have to sign up for at least one of their Yahoo!'s personalized services. They will send the occasional email relating to that service you've requested, it is occasional as well, I've had my account for months and yet to receive an email from yahoo.
We have a yahoo mail account at work, some years old. When we first got it, you could not. But now you can...I have been searching their help section, and can not find the help file that i found when i tried, that said 'you cant'
