    Yahoo

    I am unable to push email throught my yahoo.com account using Outlook 2000. I can do it with Outlook Express. Is there a reason why and can I fix or repair it?

    can you get mail and are the settings the same? yahoo needs to "pop before smtp" so try a mail check, then send within 10 min. also make sure you don't have an authentican box checked. that's in the yahoo faq i believe.

    MaryJ,
    That is interesting, Outlook attempts to send before it receives. Will I need to do these two tasks separately?

    depends on your habits <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> you might only need to do it the first time.

    i have outlook set to check mail on opening so it validates me with yahoo as soon as it loads, then it checks every 10 min (i'm on DSL so the connection is always on) most mail servers remember you for 10 -15, so this keeps me alive and i can send mail as needed without problems.

    if you are on dial up and disconnect, yes, you'll need to always check mail then send.
