Yes it is using a program called ypops. You can download and install ypops free from the ypops website. Once ypops is installed you can then to to outlook and add a new account for your yahoo email address enter youremailaddress@yahoo.com and for the incoming mail sever enter 127.0.0.1 for the outgoing mail server also enter 127.0.0.1 the outgoing server requires authentication. Also increase the server timeout to long 10 minutes.

If you don't have a premium Yahoo mail account, the short answer is no. However, there is a work around using a program called YPOPs. More information is here. Please let me know if this was helpful.

Yahoo's UK page has instructions on this and here they are: id rather paste theirs than type my own...

  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 labelled 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.co.uk" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
  9. Type "smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk" 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 labelled "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 labelled "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk."
  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 labelled "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk."
  4. Select the "Advanced" tab.
  5. If you'd like to keep a copy of your email messages on the Yahoo! Mail server, check the box next to "Leave a copy of messages on the server." If you want to delete your messages from the Yahoo! Mail server after viewing them in Outlook Express, don't check the box.
If you're unable to send email, try using port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. Here's how to make this change:
  1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts."
  2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click the "Properties" button.
  3. Click the "Advanced" tab.
  4. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP"), change port 25 to 587.
  5. Click "Apply." Then click "OK" and "Close."

    im sorry. i should have read these. its basically the same but here use these instructions instead!




    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.


    Troubleshooting instructions.


    If you followed the above configuration steps, you should be all
    set. However, if you cannot send or receive mail with your email
    client, try the following tips.


    The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server requires authentication. Make sure you have enabled SMTP authentication. To turn this setting on:



    1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."

    2. Select the "Mail" tab.

    3. Double-click the account labeled "plus.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 "plus.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.


    We strongly recommend that you enable SSL for both POP and SMTP, as
    detailed in the above instructions. This will ensure that your Yahoo!
    ID, password and email messages are transmitted securely between your
    mail client and the Yahoo! servers. However, if you choose to not use
    SSL for SMTP, your email client will likely default the SMTP port to
    25. 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"

My best guess as to what your problem is, is that you need to tell Outlook what your mail servers are......... And as each Internet Service Provider has their own your best bet is to give your ISP a call and ask the what your pop3 and smtp servers are.

Then you need to tell outlook what those servers are, the procedure for that varies a bit depending on what version of MS Office/ Outlook/ Outlook express you have.

A possible way for you to contact Live would be to sign up for a free web based email such as MSN, Yahoo, Hotmail, or gmail. As these email servers are all web based and don't rely on Outlook for you to receive a message they should give you a reliable way for Live support to contact you, and a backup email account for the future ;)

Hope this helps
