Can I set Yahoo as my default server for emails


A default email account is the account that your computer will open when you click on an "Email Us" or "Contact Us" link when you are on the Internet. Your computer is pre-programmed to open the Outlook or Windows Mail email servers when you click one of these links. If you prefer to send emails with your Yahoo! Mail account instead, change the default settings.

Click the "Start" menu and select "Control Panel." Select "Internet Options" from the "Control Panel" window that opens. Click the "Programs" tab. Click the drop-down menu next to "E-mail." Select "Yahoo! Mail." Click "OK." Yahoo! Mail is now your default mail application. Hope this helps.

Rrbudd@att.netwhen i send an E mail i want to change the name that shows up on the recipents display as to who has sent it


Yahoo Mail allows you to use one or more alternate sending addresses (which will appear in the "From:" line of messages that you send). To set that up, you need to change your mail settings.

On the Yahoo Mail page, go to: Options > Mail Options > Accounts
Then select "Add Account", and insert the new email address. (Yahoo will send a verification message to that address, to confirm that you are entitled to use it.) Be sure to click "Save changes" when you have finished.

After you set up and verify the new alternate sending address, you'll be able to select it from a pulldown menu, when sending a new message.

Please make sure that you've entered your Yahoo! Mail address as the "From" address in your email client. You won't be able to send mail if you've entered another address.

If you have the Norton AntiVirus email feature enabled, you might have to do additional configuration to use Outlook or Outlook Express. For more information, please visit the Symantec web site.

If you've tried the above steps and continue to have problems, your ISP might not allow its users to send messages with other companies' SMTP outgoing mail servers.

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 in Outlook:

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." Source(s): http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ya…
