That would be the server settings for your email provider, you should be able to get it from the website of your email provider

should be something like
incoming : pop.mai.yahoo.com
outgoing: smtp.mail.yahoo.com

Hope this helps

THIS IS GARY BOUSSIE I PAID $9,00 TO HAVE MY PROBLEM FIXED DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY. OUTLOOK EXPRESS WOULD NOT SEND, SOLUTION WAS TO CHANGE PORT NUMBER AND IT WORKED. BUT- AT THE SAME TIME,FOR SOME REASON I...


Are both your pop.mail server , and smtp.mail server settings configured in Outlook?

Are you blocking port 25?

tools > accounts > properties > servers tab > check to see if outgoing mail server "my server requires authentication" is checked. And under advanced tab, outgoing smtp is set at 25.

If you need to use SSL or Secure Auth. make sure your not blocking port 465.

With the mail servers correct, and the ports open, you should be O.K. also, I am not sure what ISP you have, but you should check their support section of their site for setting up POP mail, this will give you the correct mail server locations.

Sorry about the frustration, let us know about any bumps.

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:
  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."

Can not send email from outlook 2003. send: smtp.att.yahoo.com ssl 465


Firstly you need to enable the POP3 settings in yahoo by going to the Options>Mail options>POP & Forwarding.
After that you need  Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) : pop.mail.yahoo.com

Outgoing Mail : smtp.mail.yahoo.com

In Advanced Tab Outgoing mail Server (SMTP) : 465 (SSL)
Incoming mail (POP3) : 110 (SSL) OR  995 (SSL)

Since last night i have been unable to send any e-mails i have the free aol service


Have you unwittingly changed one of the settings regarding SMTP or other server settings on your Mail client, this would prevent you from sending mail.

If you can still recieve mail then this means that only the outgoing server is affected, so again check your SMTP configuration or phone AOL.

n Windows Mail, go to Tools, Accounts, select the account, Properties,
