Actually, all versions of Outlook have got the same problem. Let's go for Outlook XP and OE6. I want to set my Yahoo account to be retrieved prior to other accounts. How can I enforce it to do it in this order?

Well, if all versions of Outlook have the same problem, wouldn't that include XP and OE6?
I have noticed in OE6 that I can't seem to determine the order in which the accounts are checked.  Of course, you could set up two different profiles and only include your Yahoo account in one of them.  That way you can log in using that profile first and check the mail and then switch identities to the other and check the rest.

This is a kind of strange way to do it but it will work:

Outlook seems to sort accounts and check them in alphabetical order (at least 2K does).  Try this:  go to Tools->Accounts.  The first blank you'll see will say "Yahoo" (or whatever you typed).  Put a single blank space (or a number from 1-9) just before the word "Yahoo".  It won't affect the way the mail is sent and received and you'll get your Yahoo stuff work.

I'm currently using this method (numbers and blanks), however it only orders the list of accounts displayed not the actual Send/Revc execution.
