Need to retrieve password for outlook express


Open another email account with someone like yahoo or google. Find outlook express on the net, type in your e-mail address and click lost password, have them email password to your new e-mail address. You should always have two email addresses and set the other one up to have your password sent to in case it is lost. Or better yet make a document on your computer with all your passwords, so when you forget one you can look it up.

Is my email the same as my gmail address


You can have several email addresses. For example, a Yahoo Mail address and a Gmail email address. They are NOT the same address. They are accounts hosted by two quiet separate entities, Yahoo and Google. Your primary email address is simply the one you use most of the time. Email sent to your address in one account does not appear in the other account automatically. You have to sign into Yahoo mail to see the Yahoo mail you get. Likewise, you have to sign into your Google account to see your Google mail. And the accounts have different addresses and hopefully different passwords. The email you see in either account is your email but simply email that has been directed to that particular accounts email address. Email directed to your Yahoo email account will not be showing up in your Google email account; DIFFERENT ADDRESSES.

I can't email my projects from Platinum 16 because I use Yahoo mail not Outlook Express. I also have a Gmail account but I don't see any way to change the OE default. I have XP Pro.


To make Outlook Express Your Default Windows Email Program :
1.Make sure Outlook Express is not running.
2.Select Run... from the Start menu.
3.Type "msimn /reg" (excluding the quotation marks).
4.Hit Enter.Wait for, say, ten seconds for the process to finish. Nothing will appear on screen. Do not let that disturb you.
5.Launch Outlook Express.
6.Select Tools ' Options... from the menu.
7.Go to the General tab.
8.Click Make Default under Default Messaging Programs.Click OK

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"

Trying to set up outlook but dont know incoming and outgoing servers how do i find out


The incoming and outgoing mail servers are going to be the ones used by your ISP(internet service provider:Time Warner,Verizon,ect) if you use their mail service or a web based service(Yahoo,MSN,ect). So you can first start with your actual e-mail address. If your e-mail address is joeschmo@yahoo.com then you e-mail provider is yahoo. You will then need to goto the website for your e-mail provider and get the incoming and outgoing e-mail server info from them. You will also need your username and password for your e-mail account. Then set up a new e-mail account on outlook express using the information. Also some mail servers require authentication so you might need to configure those settings on outlook exprerss also.

I cannot unblock the firewall to enter my e mail account


Hi!

Are you talking about firewall blocking yahoo when you open it in outlook /outlook express or when you open yahoo in internat explorer.

And, if it is blocking it in outlook /outlook express then go to control panel-> windows firewall-> Exceptions-> see for outlook and outlook express-> then check the box next to it.

Also check the e-mail you are opening, maybe it contains a virus or trojans, and thats why its blocking your yahoo.

Thanks Rylee
