Cant recieve emails


Who is your email provided by? AT&T? Yahoo? Hotmail? Gmail?

You need to go to www.google.com and in the search box type your provider and search for the settings that should go with outlook express. For example if my email is provided through Yahoo. I would type in the search box "yahoo mail and outlook express". You will see how to configure the PoP3 and SMTP for sending and receiving mail through outlook.

Before doing all that it just seems like your problem might be that you have the wrong password in the outlook setup for PoP3. Edit your settings in Outlook and make sure you have the correct password. I think you click tools or edit when you have outlook open to get to the email accounts and edit the settings. Do this first and you can test it to see if it is working.

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! There's a possibility that your account is not set as the default account on Outlook Express, that's the reason why its not accepting your password. To make it as the default account, follow the steps below

1. On your Outlook Express window, click Tools then choose Email Accounts

Outlook Express not accepting my password


If you have entered the correct username and password (sometimes your login will require you to enter your full email address, i.e. johndoe@somedomain.com instead of just johndoe), you will need to make sure you have entered the correct information for your e-mail provider. This includes correctly configuring for POP3/IMAP, as well as any encryption necessary to log in, such as TLS/SSL.

I have my yahoo account set up on Outlook 2010. I can receive mail but after a day or two it starts asking for my password. If I go to yahoo mail log out and login it starts working in Outlook again. Is...


2 reasons as far as i know

1. If you recieve an email with attachment ( more than 3-4 MB ) Outlook may not download as the file size is too big
2. Any mail with attachment and has Virus/spyware linked to it, Outlook will disconnect.

Work around solution is, If you are using Antivirus which has Email filtering, Disable this option from the Antivirus program or Turn it off for time being till you download all the mails from Yahoo to Outlook and turn it on

Another reason is, at times yahoo login ( website ) ask you for verification code, ( this could be for several reasons like, someone trying to access your email account with wrong password, it will prompt for verification code )
If your login page is asking for verification code, and you are trying to download the mails from yahoo to outlook, you will get a username/password screen on Outlook, this is when you login to yahoo webpage and logout.

How do i link my free yahoo email account to MS Outlook 7?


Hello,
To setup your Yahoo in MS Outlook 2007, please follow the procedures written below:
1. First of all, you must enable POP3 in your yahoo mail account. If your current yahoo setting for the preferred content is “Yahoo US”, it requires “yahoo mail plus”. But if you change the setting as “Yahoo Asia”, then you can enable POP3 access in your yahoo mail account. To do that:
- Sign in to your yahoo mail account. (I assumed that you switched the yahoo mail options to “All-New mail” view from “Mail Classic” view.)
- Click on your “Display Name” and select “Account Info”


049d0f4.jpg
- Continue signing in yahoo account info verifying your password.
- In your yahoo account info page find the “Account Settings” section.
In the “Account Settings” section, check the current settings for “Set Language, site, time zone” content. If it is “Yahoo! U.S.”, then click “Set Language, site, time zone” link.

- In the “Edit Member Information” page, click on the New Setting option and change your current preferred content settings to Yahoo! Asia and click “Finished” button.

- Click “I Accept” button on the “Terms of Service” screen to proceed further.
- The preferred content will be “Yahoo! Asia”. Click the “Finished” button to save the settings.
- In your yahoo mail box page, click on Options and select More Options…

Yahoo email address will not accept my message


Are you using a mail client to send out emails? Outlook maybe? You can enable (check mark) "My server requires authentication" from your outgoing mail server settings in Outlook.

Some mailservers require this to avoid email spamming.

I cant send emails


If you have yahoo mail forwarding see: How do I verify my email address?

If you are getting error 533 , then see How to verify email addresses

If you use Outlook or Outlook express see:Why am I receiving an error when I send mail from Outlook

If instead ID/Password is not accepted read the following.
  1. Ensure that User ID and password are correct.
  2. Check if you have caps on, the password is case sensitive.
  3. Try using a different computer or a different browser (eg. downloadOpera Browser).
  4. Use Yahoo Password Recovery
  5. See also Yahoo! Password Helper
  6. If nothing worked, open a new account or contact Yahoo!
