Thanks northumbria1 but have tried all you suggested but still no incoming mail.

Check the following -

1. Log in to BT Yahoo
2. On your Home Page at top left click on MAIL (next to BT Yahoo)
3. On this screen go across to top right and
and select OPTIONS
4. From that "drop down" select "More Options"
5. From the left hand side of screen click on "POP & Forwarding"
6. Make sure "Allow your BT Yahoo Mail to be POPed" is selected
7. And in that box "don't POP spam
8. SAVE changes (above POP & Forwarding")

Thanks again but have been through that already.
It is only BT mail that will not download, my yahoo mail comes in ok.

So i assume mail is getting to your BT Server and you can read it from there - and that the problem is with your email client?

Have you checked your SPAM folder on the Server to see if messages are going into there ?

Have you tried the HELP page or contacting BT via that page?

"Error codes refer to server settings,password etc."

Is yout password correct? Maybe try resetting?
