The web mail works great since day one.

Pop mail occasionallly stops after it has been given the password and then times out. After a reboot, pop mail completes the authentication normally. Any idea's on file(s) I can clean out and see if it improves? This has happens on any 9X client with any version of outlook express.

Any idea's are apprecated

When you say 'After a reboot, pop mail completes the authentication normally. ' --- does that mean that pop mail would then work ok without problems ?  You can receive mail and send mail ?

So, most of the time, you were able to use OE for pop access on Yahoo without problems, right ?

If yes, it could be that the Yahoo pop server went down at those time you unfortunately wanted to access.  Happened to me a few times [then I went to webmial access it would be OK [because it is a different http server] --- I would write to them and they would email back, yes, the pop server went down for 'maintenance' or something.

Hope this helps.
