To set up your Yahoo Mail account for use in Outlook Express:

Go to your Yahoo Mail account online in your web browser.

Click Options

Click Pop Access & Forwarding

To Sign Up, you'll have to agree to accept e-mails of special offers from Yahoo. Select the categories of offers you are willing to receive, then click Finished.

Use the defaults on the next screen ("Web and POP Access", and "HTML Messages") and click Submit.

Now you will be at a page which is titled "Pop Configuration". You might want to bookmark this page and/or print it, in case you ever reinstall Outlook Express. Near the bottom of this page is a link titled "Configuring Microsoft Outlook Express". Click that link and follow the instructions there to finish the setup.

After you finish the above setup you will be able to pick up and send Yahoo Mail messages using Outlook Express.
