    I have an elderly couple whose computer is having trouble sending and receiving e mails. I am trying to help them. Iím suspecting that it might have something to do with the ports used by pop3 and smtp. They get the error message below on one e mail. They use yahoo and windows mail.(They can send but not receive in Yahoo and vice versa in windows mail.) The messages:
    Host pop3.att.yahoo.com could not be found. Please verifyÖ.correctly. Account pop3.att.yahoo.com;server.Ēpop3.att.yahoo.com;prot ocolop3, 110 secure (ssl) No socket error 11001 error #0x800cccod.

    Server response-2508bitmime.port 25 secure:yes:: server error 250 error # 0x800ccc7d.I have always received good help from this site. Can anybody help with suggestions and the correct settings for these 2 services

    The Yahoo help page says you should use pop.mail.yahoo.com for incoming. No sign of SSL in use.

    cheers, Paul

    Check with the ISP for the proper server domain addresses and port settings for Windows Mail.

    Addendum....I fogot to mention that elderly people, such as myself, are really better off with just one email address...the more differences there are, the more confusion generally follows...Let us know if you get this solved....I would prefer they stay with Yahoo...that way they don't lost their email if something goes wrong with their computer....

    I try to get all my customers off of the ISP email roller coaster.
    GMail is easy to set up with just about any email program even Windows Live Mail.

    Or, if they must stay with Yahoo, give them a shortcut on their desktop to the Yahoo Mail signin page.

    K.I.S.S.

    Good advice about not using the ISP provided email. Makes your (on-line)) life portable.

    I believe you could set up both email accounts in Windows Live Mail or GMail or Thunderbird, or others. Once the account is set up just clicking on a shortcut on the desktop checks all accounts that are set up.

    My WLM looks like this:

    As can be seen I have both my Road Runner accounts and my Hotmail account set up. I could just as easily have added Yahoo Mail or others here as well. Check it out.
