If you want to access to your email account using another mail program like yahoo or similar you have to go to settings at Yahoo and set in Yahoo your outlook express account like a POP account.

To do that you have to put there your mail servers names (pop (incomming) smtp (outgoing) of your outlook express account.

To find that data.......

You will find the name of your mail servers doing this:

Open your Outlook Express then Go to >> Tools >> Accounts >> Mail >> Properties >> Server

See which is your POP mail server
and Which is your SMTP mail server

Insert that data on Yahoo to get your outlook express working from there.

More than likely your internet service provider has a website you can go to to check your personal e-mail online from anyinternet-connected computer. call them or check your manual they gave you for the address and then look for a link like webmail or mail or check mail.all you will need once your there is the same username and password you use to log onto the internet.
Thier phone number should be on your internet bill.

My son cannot get to his new email address


I am sorry but without more information I cant help you or him.
I need to know what kind of email address he has. Is it one of the cheapo free ones from google (gmail) yahoo or hotmail? Or is it a good old smtp email address that you would access from outlook express or windows email program?
windows xp and older used outlook express as a default email program. Vista and newer have a windows mail program somewhat inferior to the old outlook express.

Gmail, yahoo, and hotmail are all browser based and as long as you know your signin and password you can access it from any computer.

Email sound alert


That would be an option in your Email program. I am not familiar with Mac Setting but in Windows if you are using Outlook or Outlook Express there is a setting under Preferences in the drop down menu that allows you to have the computer play a sound when mail is received. If you are using a Web Based email service I am not sure you can do this. I know hotmail does not offer that option and I don't believe Yahoo does. The problem you will have if you are using Outlook or Outlook express is it only works if you are on a network. If your are using them through an ISP to access your email they only check to see if you have mail when you click the Send/Receive button. You can set Outlook to do this automatically based on time but that may degrade system performance.

The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'a.tia62@yahoo.com'. Subject 'testing', Account: 'mail.eastern.com.ph', Server:...


Greetings,
this is a server rejected recipient error message for Outlook/ outlook express. mainly if this is a correct email address that you were trying to send the email on then you need to check for the configuration settings for Outlook express.
Goto Outlook express- higlight mail tab- select the user a/c- click properties on right- goto server tab check that server is
incoming: pop3.eastern.com.ph
outgoing: smtp.eastern.com.ph
click save

I want to yahoo mail inthe outlook express?


You can add additional (POP) accounts in Outlook 2003. Or if you still prefer OE (from help.yahoo.com):

Here's how to "POP" mail from Yahoo! Mail Plus into your Outlook Express:
  1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
  2. Select the "Mail" tab.
  3. Click the "Add" button.
  4. From the Add menu, click "Mail."
  5. In the text box labeled Display Name, type your name and click "Next."
  6. In the Email Address box, type your Yahoo! Mail address (be sure to include "@yahoo.com") and click "Next."
  7. Under "My incoming mail server is a…" select "POP3."
  8. Type "plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
  9. Type "plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com" in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box.
  10. Click "Next."
  11. In the Account Name box, type your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
  12. In the Password box, type your Yahoo! Mail password.
  13. If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, check the "Remember password" box.
  14. Do not check the boxes labeled "Log on using Secure…"
  15. Click "Next."
  16. Click "Finish."
  17. Select 'plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com' under 'Account,' and click 'Properties.'
  18. Click the “Servers” tab.
  19. Under “Outgoing Mail Server” check the box next to “My server requires authentication”
  20. Click the 'Advanced' tab.
  21. Under “Outgoing mail Server (SMTP)”, check the box next to “This server requires a secure connection (SSL). Enter port number “465” in the “Outgoing mail (SMTP)” field.
  22. Under “Incoming mail (POP3)”, check the box next to “This server requires a secure connection (SSL)". The port number in the “Incoming mail (POP3)" field should automatically change from 110 to 995. If it doesn’t, make sure the port number is set to 995.
