    POP3 access with Web based Yahoo Mail

    Hello,
    Has anyone had luck with getting Yaahoo Mail (web based) to work with Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail?

    I know there are several techniques such as installing Ypops, registering an account in the UK where it is free etc.

    Just want some feedback from the experts here before I spend time trying out these alternatives.
    Thanks,
    Windows 7 (32-bit), 4 GB Ram, 2.0 GHz Dual Core, windows live mail.

    Forget Outlook Express, it will not work with Win 7. have successfully used Hotmail web based email with WLM and GMail with WLM so I see no reason why Yahoo Mail won't work. Go through the Add email account dialog and see what happens.

    Yahoo is the only major web email that does not offer Pop3 or IMAP services for their free account. They have a Yahoo Plus service that does Pop3, but it costs $19.99 per year. Yes OE will not work with Win 7.
    Thanks.
