Within Outlook Express, go to the Tools menu, choose Accounts. Select the Mail tab.
I assume you only have one mail account.
Select that one account and click Properties button.
Select the Servers tab.
Under Incoming Mail Server you will see Account name and Password. The Account name will be your email address. The password box is will be what your password is for that account.
If you do not know this password, you will need to go to the support website or call the company who provides you with your email account.
Again, assuming you only have one email account, this account will most likely be your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Call them or use their support links to reset your password. Then come back and put that in to the password box.
NOTE: If you are using a DSL or cable modem, you may need to reprogram the modem with your new password as the primary DSL/cable account may use the same password as your primary email account. Your ISP can help you with that.
Or, re-post here and someone can provide you steps to do that.

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 cant get my bellsouth.net incoming mail or outgoing. had to set up my computer ater losing everything what do i put for my incoming mail server(pop, imap, http incoming mail pop, imap or...


Im assuming you are using outlook express, if not, I apologize, but steps should be similar for other types of software:

  1. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  2. Click Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
  3. Click POP3, and then click Next.
  4. Under User Information, do the following:
    1. In the Your Name box, type your full name the way that you want it to appear to other people.
    2. In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name, followed by @bellsouth.net.
  5. Under Server Information, do the following:
    1. In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type mail.bellsouth.net.
    2. In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type mail.bellsouth.net.
  6. Under Logon Information, do the following:
    1. In the User Name box, type your full e-mail address, including the @bellsouth.net domain.
    2. In the Password box, type your password.
    3. Select the Remember password check box.
Note You have the option to have Outlook remember your password by typing it in the Password box and selecting the Remember password check box. Having Outlook remember your password means that you won't have to type your password each time you access the account; however, it also means that the account is vulnerable to anyone who has access to your computer.
  1. To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings. If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you are prompted to supply or correct it. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Click More Settings.
  3. On the General tab, under Mail Account, type BellSouth.net.
  4. Click the Outgoing Server tab, and then select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication check box.
  5. Select Use same settings as my incoming mail server, and then click OK.
  6. Click Next, and then click Finish.
Notes
  • Do not select the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box.
  • Unless specified by BellSouth.net, all server and address entries are typed in lowercase letters.
Good Luck!

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 am a new user, when i tried to send out going E-Mail I was directed to enter server info?


You need to look at the information that was provided by your ISP (Internet service provider). If you are trying to access through a client programs such as outlook then you need to find out from your ISP what the pop and SMTP addresses are so that you can enter them at that screen as well as the username and password that was provided with your account.
