      Setting up Outlook Express to send/receive yahoo email

      Hi there, im hoping someone can help me here.

      I have a yahoo email address and im using sky as my ISP. Is it possable to now receive AND send my yahoo emails using outlook express through my sky max package.

      I seem to remember a while ago when i owned my own domain and pop3 that sky wouldnt allow you to do this and you could only use outlook with THERE email address. has this now changed.

      Could anyone point me in the right direction for a tutorial please?

      Thanks for your time

      I'm sure you can configure Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird for yahoo email! You just need to make sure you fill the correct pop details in!

      I'm not an expert so could be wrong!

      You can do it, you will need to use yahoo's email servers and not sky especially to send:

      POP Yahoo! Mail with Microsoft Outlook Express | Yahoo! Mail Help
