I have been helping my neighbors to change from their Wannadoo dial up to Metronet 512 Broadband.All went well until I tried to reconfig outlook express.They were/are using yahoo as the email provider and Wannadoo as the ISP.They have now got rid of Wannadoo.So my question is what/who do I put in as incoming/outgoing mail.I contacted Metronet who say only if I buy from them and as these good folk are quite happy with their Yahoo account they wish to stay with it .Anyone any ideas many thanks in advance.

I dont think you can get yahoo mail from outlook any more i think they stoped it with the free accounts,you have to check mail online may be wrong tho.

Just looked through my bits of paper and found the set up you can try but i dont know if it will work:

Incoming mail: pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk
SMTP: smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk

Thats how i set it up.

Outlook Express allows you to add a new email account to your existing profile. This means you do not have to replace your current settings in order to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages. Here's how:
From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
Select the "Mail" tab.
Click the "Add" button.
From the Add menu, click "Mail."
In the text box labeled Display Name, type your name and click "Next."
In the Email Address box, type your Yahoo! Mail address (be sure to include "@yahoo.co.uk") and click "Next."
Under "My incoming mail server is a..." select "POP3."
Type "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
Type "smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk" in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box.
Click "Next."
In the Account Name box, type your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.co.uk").
In the Password box, type your Yahoo! Mail password.
If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, check the "Remember password" box.
Do not check the boxes labeled "Log on using Secure..."
Click "Next."
Click "Finish."
Important: The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server now requires authentication. To turn this setting on:

From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
Select the "Mail" tab.
Double-click the account labeled "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk."
Select the "Servers" tab.
Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication."
Click "OK."
To control deletion of messages from the Yahoo! Mail Server:

From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
Select the "Mail" tab.
Double-click the account labeled "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk."
Select the "Advanced" tab.
In the Delivery section at the bottom of the window, check "Leave a copy of messages on server" if you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on the Yahoo! Mail server as well as on your local computer. Do not check this box if you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! Mail server once you have received them in Outlook Express.
