    Here is the information on Yahoo mail server names:

    Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Account Name/Login Name: your Yahoo! Mail name (your address without the "@yahoo.com")
    Email address: your Yahoo! Mail address (i.e., user@yahoo.com)
    Password: your Yahoo! Mail password

    You will also need to make sure the POP3 forwarding option is set. This can be found by going to your Yahoo! mail account and selecting Options from the menu on the left side of the screen. Then select POP Access & Forwarding from the list of available options. The next page will give you the option of setting your account for POP3 access or forwarding to another account.

    Good Luck!

    well I did exactly as you said & then did tools/send and receive/pop.mail.yahoo.com because I have hotmail set there as the default in outlook express.

    I get an error message that the connection to the server failed. Account

    the pop.mail.yahoo.com should work as the incoming mail server for yahoo. I tried this with my OE program and was able to pull my yahoo messages into OE with no problems.

    Did you go to Tools | Accounts, click the mail tab, then select the Add button? If you do this, then follow all the prompts, you should be OK.

    Also, you might want to try connecting to Yahoo! through OE again, in the past I have had connection problems, that were resolved several hours later. Go figure.

    BTW, yes that is/was Jack Lord (a.k.a. 'Steve McGarrett', hence the tie-in to my user name).
