Yahoo Mail using Outlook Express

  beaky 23:26 17 Jun 2003

I have as my ISP and use their email facility via outlook express. I also use Yahoo Web based email - but I have to access this via Internet Explorer. Is it possible to access both my Beeb mail and my Yahoo mail via Outlook Express? That way I can hopefully create Yahoo emails offline and just connect up to send them and receive new mail.

As far as I know, it is only possible to pick up and send your yahoo email by logging onto their site unless you pay them extra for the pop 3 facility.

Yes it is, but I can't remember exactly what the steps are for Outlook Express as I have been using Outlook for a while now. It should be similar though.

You need to setup a separate email account within Outlook Express for your Yahoo email. For the incoming (POP3) email server, you need to enter "", and in the outgoing your SMTP server. The login name and password is that for your Yahoo account. The Dial-Up Networking connection should be your existing

But I remember having to change my Yahoo registration to specify my personal preferences and interests to be able to get my mail onto the Yahoo POP3 server.

Hope that helps ~ others may even have a useful web page link to hand which they can post.
