    I just found out that all of my personal Yahoo emails appear on Microsoft Outlook Express in my office. I do not want the whole office to read them, of course. How can I prevent this? I work on a network on windows 2000. Thanks!

How do i transfer my emails from outlook express/Windows Mail back to yahoo mail?


The only way to return mail from Outlook Express to the Yahoo website is to forward them back to yourself. Make sure you set the option in Outlook Express to leave mail on the server or the mail will come right back and be removed from Yahoo again.

I assume what the store owner meant is that you had Outlook Express constantly running which would place a tab at the bottom of the page.

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

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 "pop.mail.yahoo.com."
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 "pop.mail.yahoo.com."
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 CAN NOT SET MY EMAIL ID OF YAHOO .WITH MICROSOFT OUTLOOK .


Hi Harshal, If you are using free Email from Yahoo and trying to configure it with MS Outlook or outlook Express as POP account then you won't be able to do that. Because long time ago yahoo stopped supporting POP accounts for free accounts. So you can't configure free yahoo account on Outlook.

I have forwarded all my inbox mails to outlook express,just for experiment,now i want them back in my yahoo mail inbox,and since than i cant recieve or send any mail please help me out manu india


There is no easy way. You must first go to account options in Outlook and set it to leave mail on the server. Then you have to manually forward every email back to yourself. The date will change and "RE:" will be added to each subject.

There is another option if this all happened today. First go to account options in Outlook and set it to leave mail on the server. Then have Yahoo restore your email.

What incoming and outgoing mail server info. do I need to set up


Hi, For yahoo mail you need upgrade to yahoo mail plus (@ $19.99 per year) to get the full pop3 service for access to Outlook,Incredimail, Thunderbird and others.
For more info on setting up your pop3 account see the links below.
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/cl...
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/cl...
* Incoming Mail Server (POP3): plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
Use SSL, port: 995
* Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication.

If you have “yahoo.co.uk” address some users can get free pop forwarding see below.
Click “options” (top right) on your mail page>mail options>pop and forwarding>
Set up or edit pop & forwarding>type in the address you want to forward to and
click save.
* Incoming mail server (POP3): pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk
Use SSL, port: 995
* Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smpt.mail.yahoo.co.uk
Use SSL, port: 465.
Note: In order to be able to send emails from outlook and others through/to yahoo (pop3) you need to pay for a yahoo mail plus account.
