I will be installing BT BB basic for a friend. I appreciate that basic doesn't include an email account but can anyone advise whether using yahoo web mail (free account) and then setting up OE to the yahoo.co.uk POP settings will enable send and receive email from OE?
I think yahoo have stoped the free pop fowarding to OE you now have to pay for it,having said that i have had a yahoo account for years and im still able to get mine through OE6.I dont think you can send email from OE with a yahoo addy anyway as you would need to sign in first on yahoo itself the mail would just bounce.
I've got a similar system and have to pay for an email address from Yahoo! - BTYahoo Premium Mail. It's about £1.50 a month. (Strangly enough my email address is *@btinternet.co - which is most confusing.)
I had the same problem. Do you have a hotmail address ?, if not you can easily get one from MSN. Then in Outlook Express mail options, nominate Hotmail as your default address, and you can then use that to send emails as computer programs usually send emails via OE. I found that when I worked on a photo and tried to send email it to someone, because I only had BT basic it would not go, so I tried the above and it was sent by OE using Hotmail (You can use BT basic for your main emails. For my own ease, I removed BT from the mail options in OE and now everything works OK, saves £1.50 a month. Hope you can understand this. Cheers
