Step by step directions for this are here:

If you're using Mozilla Firefox:

  1. At the top of Firefox, click Tools and select Options.
  2. In the "Options" window, click Applications from the choices along the top.
  3. Scroll down to "mailto", and click on it.
  4. In the pull-down menu to the right of "mailto", click Use Yahoo! Mail.
  5. Click OK at the bottom of the Firefox 3 window. You're done!
If you use Internet Explorer...
The tiny program that allows you to select Yahoo! Mail as the default email application for your PC is included as part of Yahoo! Toolbar version 7.2 and up for Internet Explorer (not Firefox).
If you don't have Yahoo! Toolbar v.7.2 or later for Internet Explorer installed, you’ll need to download it before proceeding with these instructions.
  1. From the "Start" pop-up menu in the lower left corner of your desktop, select "Settings" > "Control Panel".
  2. In the Control Panel, select "Internet Options". This opens the "Internet Properties" window.
  3. Click the "Programs" tab along the top.
  4. Click the "E-mail" pull-down menu, and select Yahoo! Mail.
  5. Click OK. Done!

Hope this helps!

When Outlook Express starts, highlight the E-mail ID that is in the 'TO:' field, and "copy" the text to the Windows Clipboard.

Then, open another browser-window (or tab), and login to your Yahoo! E-mail, and "compose" a new message, and "paste" from the Windows Clipboard into the 'TO:' field.

How do i transfer my emails from outlook express/Windows Mail back to yahoo mail?


The only way to return mail from Outlook Express to the Yahoo website is to forward them back to yourself. Make sure you set the option in Outlook Express to leave mail on the server or the mail will come right back and be removed from Yahoo again.

I assume what the store owner meant is that you had Outlook Express constantly running which would place a tab at the bottom of the page.

Help! I can't respond via email on Craig's List


Imagine your shopping on Craig's List and find this GREAT item you really want to buy. You open the ad, decided the price is fantastic and want to contact the seller. There is no phone number listed, so your only choice is to email the address at the top of the ad. You click on it, because it looks like a link and this strange program called "Outlook" opens.

You continue with your email and hit the good old "send" button and instead of a confirmation you end up with an error.

Has this ever happened to you?

Craig's List uses Microsoft Outlook as a default for handling email on their webpage. What is Outlook? Microsoft Outlook is an email handling software that allows you to handle everything in one place. This means that you can have your AOL, Yahoo and Gmail all go to the same place in one big in box.

When Outlook is configured correctly, emailing Craig's List ads is a snap! You click on the blue email link inside the listing and it automatically opens your Outlook mail server.

For those of you who do not wish to install, configure and use Outlook - you can still use your regular email to answer ads on Craig's list. It just takes a little more work.

If you would like to email ads on Craig's List without using Microsoft Outlook, follow the instructions below:

Open Craig's List on the internet and minimize the screen

Open another window on the internet and sign into your email account

Go back to the Craig's List window and find an ad your interested in emailing

Highlight the email address at the top of the ad by clicking the button on your mouse and dragging across until all of the address is covered

With the address highlighted, right click on your mouse and choose "copy"

Minimize the window and pick up your email account which is open at the bottom of your screen.

Proceed to composing an email like you normally would.

In the address window, right click again with your mouse and choose paste

This pastes the address from the seller on Craig's List into your email program.

Write your email and send just like normal.

You can use this copy and paste method with any email provider on the internet. Good luck and happy shopping!

Everytime i try to send mail from a craidslist ad or something outlook pops up instead of going to yahoo mail


You have two choices to fix this problem. You can install outlook and configure it to get your Yahoo email, or keep your Yahoo email as it is now and use the Copy and paste option to answer ads in Craig's List.

Outlook is an email program that allows you to upload several accounts into one place. You can use Outlook to get your AOL, Yahoo and many other email programs at the same time and manage it in one place. Outlook picks up the prompts automatically on the ads on Craig's List. If you want to use Outlook, you will need the information on the outgoing and incoming mail servers from your Yahoo account. Set up the incoming and outgoing mail in Outlook with your Yahoo account info and you can use it to answer the ads on Craigs list.

You can use your Yahoo email account as it is now to answer ads on Craig's list by using the copy and paste method. When your in an ad on Craig's list that you want to answer, use your mouse to highlight the email address and click "edit" at the top of the page and then "copy". Minimize the page on Craig's list by hitting the minus key at the top right hand side of your screen and then open your email program. Click in the address section of a new email and right click with your mouse and choose paste. Then write your comments and send as normal.

Hope this helps?

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 GOT INTO THE WRONG AREA, OUTLOOK EXPRESS ON MY PC CAME UP WANTING ME TO ENTER POP3 FOR SEND AND SMYP FOR RECIEVE ON EMAIL STUFF I BELIEVE. SCINCE THEN I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO ACCESS MY EMAIL MY EMAIL...


Do you want to use Outlook Express to access your yahoo mail? It is Web based so you can access it online.

If you want to use Outlook Express then you need to enter the following details for standard Yahoo Mail::

    Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)
    Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)
    For Yahoo Plus:

      Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)

      Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)

Can one only use Outlook Express for email attachment with HP Scan Jet G3110


If Outlook Express is your "preferred Email", when you email a scanned image, it is sent by Outlook Express. The sender's name displayed is the user listed in the Outlook Express (whose User name is used to get into the Outlook Exp).
If anyone else want to send it in their name:
This is what you have to do:
Save the scanned image somewhere in the computer.
Goto your Yahoo mail, or Hotmail or Google mail (create a free account if you don't have your own email account) and send the scan as an attachment. Hope this will work for you.

Subscribe to mail plus:

or download and install YPOPS
http://ypopsemail.com/


then follow the directions for your version of outlook here,

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/or...

If you have trouble with set up, check the YPOPS installation page for alternate set up instructions.

http://dbeusee.home.comcast.net/
Click on YPOPS link on the left.
Then Click on Configuring email clients towards the bottom.
Choose the appropriate link for your mail client.

I currently utilize version 2.0.0.4 of Thunderbird
and version 0.8.3 of YPOPS (there is a more recent version of YPOPS that you need if you are Yahoo Beta Mail) and have no problems.

Thumbs up are always appreciated if I have truly helped you!!
