  1. Hi everyone...

    I canNOT figure out how to get (or even IF) I can synch my Outlook Express with Yahoo. I have gone to this site:

    http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...b;en-us;Q256151

    but the prompts do not seem to follow what is displayed. I am using Outlook Express 6.

    Thanks
    Gregg

    You can simply use the POP3 service available to premium users ($19 per year I believe). If you are such a user, you simply need to retrieve your Emails with pop.mail.yahoo.com & send them via smtp.mail.yahoo.com & you can use them with any Email client such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Pegasus, Thunderbird, etc.

    I have noticed that the POP3 service seems to be available free of charge for people with a yahoo.fr Email (such as me). I still have no idea why they would make such a service free for some people & not for others.

    Yahoo POP Options on Yahoo.fr
