Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I tried to connect my Yahoo mail to my Microsoft Outlook. In the process, I downloaded all of the e-mails that were in my Yahoo account to Microsoft Outlook. I did this accidentally because I forgot to check the box that said "leave e-mails on the server". Yahoo tells me they have record that the e-mails were downloaded to my computer. However, I cannot seem to find them. They are not in the form of a ".pst" file as far as I can tell. It is possible that they are in the form of an ".ost" file. But, I can't see what is in those OST files.

    How to receive mails from two yahoo accounts to one place?

    Hi Vinay,

    You need to configur your microsoft outlook or windows mail or outlook express in such a way that you recive mails from both the account to one inbox. Follow the below steps if you have ms outlook.

    Microsoft Outlook Express
    Yahoo! Mail users can read their email in Outlook Express by subscribing to the Yahoo! Mail Plus service. This service allows you to use Outlook Express or another POP3 client to access and manage your Yahoo! Mail messages.

    Outlook Express allows you to add a new email account to your existing profile. This means you do not have to replace your current settings in order to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages. Here's how:

    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 "") and click "Next."
    7. Under "My incoming mail server is a..." select "POP3."
    8. Type "" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
    9. Type "" 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 "").
    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."

    Important: The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server now requires authentication. To turn this setting on:

    1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
    2. Select the "Mail" tab.
    3. Double-click the account labeled ""
    4. Select the "Servers" tab.
    5. Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication."
    6. Click "OK."

    To control deletion of messages from the Yahoo! Mail Server:

    1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
    2. Select the "Mail" tab.
    3. Double-click the account labeled ""
    4. Select the "Advanced" tab.
    5. In the Delivery section at the bottom of the window, check "Leave a copy of messages on server" if you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on the Yahoo! Mail server as well as on your local computer. Do not check this box if you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! Mail server once you have received them in Outlook Express.

    If your ISP blocks port 25 or if you're unable to send email, then you will need to use port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change, please follow the directions below:

    1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts"
    2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click on the "Properties" button
    3. Click on the "Advanced" tab
    4. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP), change port 25 to 587
    5. Click "Apply", then click "OK" and "Close"

    I am tying to set up yahoo account on thunderbird. i can send email but not receive.. i have tried changing server settings and port settings

    Much more common is a sending issue. Often you have to send through your ISP server, contact them for what that server is, if you have sending issues.

    I found directions for Outlook, which should be similar to Thunderbird:

    Look closely at requires authentication settings....

    Note: You must be a Yahoo! Mail Plus user to read Yahoo! Mail in an email reader program such as Microsoft Outlook. Click here for information about subscribing to Yahoo! Mail Plus.
    To read your Yahoo! Mail Plus using Microsoft Outlook 2002 or 2003, follow these steps:
    1. From the Tools menu, select Email Accounts.
    2. Select Add a new email account and click Next.
    3. Select POP3 and click Next.
    4. Enter the following information:
      • User Information

        Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send an email message.

        E-Mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example,
      • Server Information

        Incoming mail server (POP3): Type

        Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type
      • Login Information

        User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "").

        Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
      • Select the Remember Password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
      • Do not select the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
    5. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
    6. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
      • Select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
      • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
    7. Click the Advanced tab:
      • Under Incoming Server (POP3), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the Incoming Server (POP3) field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, type 995.
      • In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under Outgoing Server (SMTP), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
      • If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, select the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox. If you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! server once Outlook has downloaded them onto your computer, leave the box unchecked.

        Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
    8. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
    9. Click Finish to close the Add New E-mail Account dialog box.
    10. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.
    Troubleshooting tips
    If you still can't send Yahoo! Mail from Outlook, you might be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try using port 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change:
    1. From the Tools menu, select Account Settings. The Account Settings dialog box appears.
    2. Select your Yahoo! Mail Plus account and click Properties. The Change E-mail Account dialog box appears.
    3. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
    4. Click the Advanced tab.
    5. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) box, type 587.
    6. Click Apply, and then click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
    7. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.

    How to connect yahoo mail using windows mail in Windows 7

    You cannot configure Yahoo account with Windows live mail.
    And the reason you are getting the error because you have Micosoft outlook in the pc and that email client (MS outlook) is not configured with your yahoo mail and it is not the default email client in your PC. Windows live mail is the default email client in your PC and you cannot configure Yahoo account in windows live mail.

    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?

    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”

    - 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…

    How can I connect my Yahoo email account with Windows Outlook 2003?

    This depends on whether or not you pay for your Yahoo email account. Yahoo has restricted the POP3 downloading of emails from free accounts. If you pay for your email account, you can download mail by going into the email options on the website, and enabling POP3 email access, and then they provide you with the instructions to download your mail with Outlook 2003. Otherwise, you have to use the website to get your mail.

    My outlook downloads all the mails from the inbox

    Yahoo uses POP3 as the e-mail protocol, which gives you ther option of retrieving messages but not deleting them. It sounds as though the "Leave a copy of messages on the server" option in the Advanced settings for the account is checked so that messages are left on the Yahoo e-mail server. To check on that and change it:
    1. In Outlook 2003, select Tools->E-Mail Accounts;
    2. When the E-Mail Accounts wizard pops up, under the E-Mail areaq, make sure that "View or Change existing e-mail accounts" is selected, then press Next;
    3. Select your Yahoo account in the dialog that pops up and click on "Change";
    4. The Internet E-Mail Settings dialog for the Yahoo account pops up. Click on "More Settings", then in the dialog that pops up, click on the Advanced tab;
    5. At the botton of that tab, there is an area marked as "Delivery". Make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is unchecked, then click OK;
    6. Click the Next button on the dialong, then click "Finish".
    At this point, if you check e-mail using Outlook, the messages should be deleted from the server. If not, then we can go from there.
