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"

What is outlook migration


Outlook migration can be from another e-mail program such as yahoo mail to MS Outlook. It can also be the other way such as from Outlook to Office 365 which still uses Outlook but you can migrate from Outlook to another product such a POP mail account . It really depends on if you are migrating TO or FROM Outlook.

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.

How do i link my free yahoo email account to MS Outlook 7?


Hello,
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”


049d0f4.jpg
- 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…

LG Viewty pc connection problems


I had the same problem. It was caused by the phone waiting for the date to be entered (even though it was already done). To get over the problem click on the multitask icon on the phone (top right). If anything is running other than "Home Screen" and "Menu" click on the application and close it. PC synchronisation should strat to work now.

SYNC LGKU990 to PC


This is what sorted it out for me.

When you go through the connection wizard on the LG PC Suite take note of the port number that it is using.
Then go to device manager(for win xp go to start/control panel/system, click on the Hardware tab then device manger) on your pc. Expand Ports(COM & LPT) and right click on LGE Mobile USB Serial Port and select properties. Take note of what port is indicated in brackets. Go to the Port Settings tab and select advanced. Change the com port number to what LG PC suite was using. Select OK, OK and try connecting again with the Wizard and see if you can transfer data etc
Let me know if that helped.
