Question about Computers & Internet
I am new to outlook, and i wanted to use it for my yahoo mail (free) account... i browsed the net and found that a combination of outlook and ypops can do it.
i configured ypops and according to the instructions set the incoming port to 1101 and outgoing (smtp) port to 251.
i am able to receive mail, but not able to send any.
i get a reply from the administrator with the following test:
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
Sent: 2/14/2008 10:06 AM
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:
'firstname.lastname@example.org' on 2/14/2008 10:07 AM
554 Mailbox unavailable.
How to solve this...please help me
thanks in advance
Use "smtp.mail.yahoo.com" as a SMTP server with 465 Port and Security as SSL...

That is an SMTP server error. Now, I'm not a ypops expert per se, but I do know this much: That kind of error should indicate something on the server-side of things, not what you have done in your configuration of the program.
Furthermore, a little bit of research on ypops indicates that Yahoo! has installed a new mail server that is returning this error, and that they [ypops] are in the process of trying to correct the problem. To me, it looks like Yahoo! has done something intentionally to stop free access to a POP3 email account, when they reap revenue from charging for such an account.
So, the solution is, there is no solution at this time. Unfortunately, it looks as though you may have to check back at ypops for an update.

Ypops no longer works with outlook. There's a ypops board but I've been checking it so long I think people have given it up. Sorry I'm sure this is not the answer you were looking for.
that's the forum for ypops

I had problems sending....got the yahoo error message. I send the mail through my Incredimail (I suppose it would work in Outlook as well ) Highlight your forward or reply by using select all under edit and paste it into a new mail in Incredimail. Easy step and it will send.
Now, my problem is with receiving. It worked at first but now it isn't and I didn't change any settings.

It seems that yahoo mail now provides pop3 access negating the need for YPOPS!

Make sure your Yahoo account is on Classic Mail (if not, there's an option to change to Classic after you login to Yahoo mail.

What worked for me was to go to yahoo mail online and send a test message manually, then outlook 2007 worked perfectly
