Re: configration

If it's just a straight yahoo account, you have to pay for service. Hotmail uses an HTTP method where they will allow you to use outlook (Microsoft of course!) Unfortunately, Yahoo doesn't do this except allow POP3 and even that is paid for.

Is there a method to repair corrupted Outlook 2010 Address Book?

To fix this you can remove the Outlook Address Book service, restart Outlook, and then add it again as indicated by the steps above.
Sadly this workaround will not work in Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 as removing the Outlook Address Book service is not supported in these versions. In this case, you must recreate your mail profile.
(Re)creating a mail profile..
1. Press the button Add...
-Do NOT use Copy... not even when you want to recreate your mail profile or you'll end up copying the corruption as well.
-Do NOT delete your old profile, not even when it is corrupted, before you verified that the new one works. You might want to lookup some account settings afterwards.
2. Enter a name for your new Mail Profile.
3. Select to add a new mail account.
4. Make sure you choose the correct account type. Ask your ISP or
administrator if you do not know this.
-If you are using Live Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo or AOL, you can find the settings you need here.
-In Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013, you can simply type your desired display name, email address and password and Outlook will try to determine and configure your account automatically.
If this fails you can still choose to configure it manually with the
information provided by your ISP.
If actions on above can't get back your address book, then try third
party software Address Book Repair Toolbox

Cant recieve emails

Who is your email provided by? AT&T? Yahoo? Hotmail? Gmail?

You need to go to and in the search box type your provider and search for the settings that should go with outlook express. For example if my email is provided through Yahoo. I would type in the search box "yahoo mail and outlook express". You will see how to configure the PoP3 and SMTP for sending and receiving mail through outlook.

Before doing all that it just seems like your problem might be that you have the wrong password in the outlook setup for PoP3. Edit your settings in Outlook and make sure you have the correct password. I think you click tools or edit when you have outlook open to get to the email accounts and edit the settings. Do this first and you can test it to see if it is working.

Can't send or receive mail with Outlook 2003 and can't find a FREE repair.

You should first check all the mail setting for the mail account that does not work.

Your ISP will have those on the help page for your ISP.
If its is hotmail or yahoo mail etc then they too have help pages with the information you need.

If your settings are all correct then move onto checking your firewall and other INTERNET safety software such as antivirus. Norton can cause all sorts of issues with send and receive mail.

If it is outlook that is at fault then a simple and quick "repair" installation of MS Office will tend to sort those out. Just put your office CD in and follow the instructions but select the "repair my office installation" option

You didn't give a lot to go on so I can only give you the basic options to try point you in the right direction

I can not set up mail account of out look express my server smtp

Setting up Outlook Express, you need to know from your Internet Provider (ISP) or who host your email (e.g yahoo or hotmail) for the Incoming Mail Server(POP) and Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP). This needs to be configured in Outlook Express before you to can check and receive your emails.

My outlook downloads all the mails from the inbox

Yahoo uses POP3 as the e-mail protocol, which gives you ther option of retrieving messages but not deleting them. It sounds as though the "Leave a copy of messages on the server" option in the Advanced settings for the account is checked so that messages are left on the Yahoo e-mail server. To check on that and change it:
  1. In Outlook 2003, select Tools->E-Mail Accounts;
  2. When the E-Mail Accounts wizard pops up, under the E-Mail areaq, make sure that "View or Change existing e-mail accounts" is selected, then press Next;
  3. Select your Yahoo account in the dialog that pops up and click on "Change";
  4. The Internet E-Mail Settings dialog for the Yahoo account pops up. Click on "More Settings", then in the dialog that pops up, click on the Advanced tab;
  5. At the botton of that tab, there is an area marked as "Delivery". Make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is unchecked, then click OK;
  6. Click the Next button on the dialong, then click "Finish".
At this point, if you check e-mail using Outlook, the messages should be deleted from the server. If not, then we can go from there.
