View Full Version : Outlook express help
I am interested in using outlook express so that I only have one place to check for all emails in lieu of multiple accounts, work, personnel, reunion, class etc. However doesn't seem to work on my Yahoo accts. Any suggestions or other programs like Outlook that I can use. Thanks.

That's a Yahoo restriction - you have to signup for Yahoo Mail Plus (at $20/year) to be able to get emails in another client program (outlook, outlook express, etc).
There are some add-on programs that you can use to fool Yahoo into letting Outlook Express access the emails. I've never tried them (never had the need) so, unless someone else has experience with them - I'd say use caution in trying them.
Here is a link that talks about the add-in software. How to Access a Free Yahoo! Mail Account with Outlook Express - About Email (http://email.about.com/od/outlookexpresstips/qt/et041606.htm)
I will check it out. I am kind of missing the old school of technology. Snail Mail and Human Conversation. What happened to those ages. Oh well. I will check it out. Thanks again.
