Question about Yahoo Mail
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 POP3/SMTP access to Yahoo! Mail:
(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:
(BTW, I'm not sure that's a particularly good deal, but it is relatively simple to implement.)
(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:
