Problem with Outlook and Yahoo mail

  exdragon 22:12 08 Nov 2005

Hi - I've got XP, Outlook 2002 (not Outlook Express) and my broadband is from BT Yahoo.
I use Outlook to send and receive mail and up until lunch time today there were no problems.

Now, any mail goes straight to Yahoo and doesn't appear in Outlook. I haven't changed any settings and have checked in Tools/Email Accounts and the POP and SMTP settings are both In Yahoo mail help, I can only find out how to set up accounts in Outlook, which is what I've already done.

I seem to be going round in ever decreasing circles and am sure it's something simple in Yahoo which I've missed. I've been using the same set up for years! 22:16 08 Nov 2005

Access you BT account via webmail - you should be able to check if you've got a forwarding address. If it runs the same as most ISP's webmail you'll be able to select tools (or options) and rules, make sure there isn't an address is the "forward address" box. (It may not be the exact procedure I laid out as I've never used BT webmail) 22:18 08 Nov 2005

Sorry I just re-read the post and realised that yahoo is your ISP > doh!!

I don't believe it, I spent hours on this last night, then discovered as soon as I switched the thing on that there wasn't a tick in the Send/receive box when Outlook is online... Grrrr
