Unable to send email via Outlook Express / Yahoo

  Dalglish2 14:06 18 May 2006

Hi all

I have a webmail account with Tahoo but want to be able to send & receive email as well using Outlook Express.
Whilst I can receive, I cannot send emails from Outlook express even after following all of the tips re server name and needing autherntication suggested by Yahoo help.
Any ideas or similar experiences?

if this is the BTyahoo mail, do you have a btinternet.com address or a btopenworld address?

Neither, it's the standard yahoo.co.uk email that you can subscribe to.
Does that matter?

Is this a subscribed account with yahoo?

in outlook express i notice that you say you have ticked authentication, delete and recreate the account without ticking the authentication box.
