    And I didn't know I could add my email to outlook

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    I can get into word and other products. No I haven't restarted my computer.

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    I will restart it and let you know what happens.

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    You could be right, I have a ton of messeges in my outlook I will try and wait.

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    will i loose all my setting when I repair?

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    I typed in outlook /safe and ok and nothing happened

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    2 of you are assisting me today with 2 very different options. Probably both great. It is suggested I have too many messeges in my outlook. Which I most likely do. Would the repair help that if I don't have the RAM?

What is preventing you to get into outlook? It just won't open or is there an error or password needed?

    It is possible that you have too many messages in it and don't have enough RAM memory to operate the program. Do you think this might be it

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri May 01, 2008

    Have you tried outlook safe mode? 1. Click on Start ¦ Run.
    2. Type outlook/safe
    3. Click on OK.

    also after trying to open wait, say 10 minutes and maybe it will open or freeze up but with no error messages it must be thinking that it is opening, but really slowly


  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri May 01, 2008

    Alright to help get rid of some of the memory (which can be put back in later) Look for your data files ending in .pst and back them up which means rename them and put them in a different folder not in outlook and see if outlook will start then.

Do you mean you want to add your yahoo email to Outlook?

    Go to add/Remove programs in the control panel. Find Microsoft Outlook or if you installed it as part of Office you may only find Microsoft Office in the list. There should be a change button, click it. Once the installer opens you should have a repair option, select it, then go through the steps you are prompted. Make sure you have your Outlook or Office CD handy as you will be asked for it. This should repair outlook and allow you to get in.

  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly May 01, 2008

    I still think something is corrupted with either your Outlook or your mail store. Doing the repair will eliminate Outlook from the problem. Then if the problem persists after the repair I can help you move your mail store and delete your account to try and access Outlook again.

  • Dean Joly

    Let me also suggest Mozilla Thunderbird as a free Outlook alternative, I prefer it. It's a lot less bloated than Outlook and more reliable. If you don't use the calendar in outlook it's the best, but Mozilla has Sunbird for that.

  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly May 01, 2008

    No, repairing will not touch your mail store.

  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly May 01, 2008

    I have never seen the amout of messages being a problem especially related to the amount of RAM in a computer. Windows is great at swapping out unnecessary items from memory to it's hard drive based virtual memory swap file. It could be that your mail store (PST file) is corrupt but Outlook would still open and you would get an error message if that was the case. It sounds like Outlook is trying to start but then stops. I have users that have 2 or 3 Gigabyte mail stores and have no problem opening up Outlook on a machine with 512MB or even 256MB of RAM.

  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly May 01, 2008

    Do you know how to bring up the task manager? If not you can get it by right clicking the task bar and clicking Task Manager or by pressing crtl-shift-esc. Then go to the processes tab, then try to start Outlook, you should see outlook.exe appear in the list. If it goes away right away then do the repair, if it stays up but stops then also to the repair. If it keeps running, and its memory usage keeps climbing then there might be something wrong with your mail store, but I doubt it.

I can't sign into my webmail account


Webmail is a type of email that allows you to access your messages on any computer with a browser and Internet connection.
Webmail has its advantages over email clients (such as Outlook) in that it allows remote access to your account.
It also is convenient because it does not require extra software to be installed on your computer. It takes a couple of moments to log in to your webmail account.
Open a browser.
Go to your email service login page.
For example, If you have a Yahoo! account, go to http://mail.yahoo.com/, if you have a Gmail account, go to http://mail.google.com/ and if you have a AOL account, go to http://webmail.aol.com.
Contact your Internet service provider if you're not sure of your Webmail login page.

Type your user name and password in the fields provided on the page.
Click the "Go" or "Sign In" button.
You will be taken to your email account where you can manage your messages.

Pop3 ;imap ;HTTP setting for incoming and outgoing mails in my pc for yahoo


The regular Yahoo! Mail accounts (US) do not provide access via the POP3, SMTP and IMAP email protocols. So you cannot access a Yahoo! Mail account with a standard email program (e.g., Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird), unless you take some additional steps.

Here are some options that can provide the type of access you are seeking:

(1) Yahoo! Plus - paid upgrade
Yahoo offers a paid upgrade for its email accounts. The "Yahoo! Plus" account provides POP3 and SMTP access; the cost is $20/year. For details see:
http://overview.mail.yahoo.com/enhancements/mailplus
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/mailplus/pop/pop-14.html
(BTW, I'm not sure that's a particularly good deal, but it is relatively simple to implement.)

There are also some free work-arounds which will allow email programs to access a regular Yahoo! Mail account.

(2) YPOPs! - free software
This program is a "POP3 gateway", which allows Yahoo Mail to be received and sent via any standard email program. You'll need to download the free program and install it; then configure both the Yahoo account settings in your email program and in YPOPs, so they will work together. For details and download, see:

http://ypopsemail.com/
For configuration guidance, see articles at:
http://ypopsemail.com/documentation/37-email-configuration

(3) WebMail - free Thunderbird extension
If you use Thunderbird as your email program, there is a free extension which will allow access to various webmail services (including Yahoo). You'll need to download and install both the basic WebMail extension and the Yahoo plug-in; then follow the instructions to configure them for your Yahoo account.
For details and download, see:

Email delivery recidtion


If you are trying to receive email on your computer via outlook express or similar from yahoo. If yahoo is your internet provider this should be simple via downloading a setup program from their website. If you are trying to convert a webmail account to a desktop account, you have to pay them money each month about £1.50 GBP to upgrade to a 'premium' account, and they will give you a setup guide.
