Outlook - Yahoo Mail Settings
« on: Aug 20, 2008, 18:55 »
Help!

I have just signed up for a new ymail account.  I am trying to configure Outlook to send and receive my mail.  I have enabled POP access through my Yahoo account on-line.  I have even checked the settings via their set-up guide.  However I am still receiving the following error message:


Task 'xxxxxx - Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

That to me would indicate that there is a problem with my incoming server settings only, any ideas?

The Yahoo POP SSL email connection doesn't use default email ports (normally 110 for incoming, 25 for outgoing)

1.) Verify Internet connectivity
2.) Verify account settings
3.) Verify the Yahoo email account is the default account
4.) Verify you are using the right ports (incoming 995, outgoing 465)
5.) Disable Internet Security or verify that Firewall is configured properly
6.) Disable Anti-virus software
7.) If still not working, restart computer.
8.) If still not working, contact the computer administrator or Internet Service Provider

Done all of that, except for No 8, which is pointless as I know there are now issues with my ISP and I am the computer administrator.

I have just put a forward on to my MSN account which I access using live mail.

Mr Cat - good suggestion :-)

Have you set up the Yahoo account for pop3 and not for webmail?
