Hi there,

I am using Outlook 2002 XP (NOT outlook express). I am setting up a new account using the wizard and entering in all the correct details but .......each time I attempt to perform a send and recieve operation I keep getting the following error:

Task 'http://mail.yahoo.co: Folder:Inbox Synchronizing headers.' reported error (0x800CCCF4) : 'An unknown error has occurred. Please save any existing work and restart the program.'

I have set up 'http://mail.yahoo.com NOT as 'http://mail.yahoo.co: as shown in the error above!!!

Anyone with any pointers would be much appreciated

It's pop.mail.yahoo.com and smtp.mail.yahoo.com.  See:

To the best of my knowledge there is no way to directly retrieve Yahoo mail unless you are an SBC Yahoo customer with a paid account.  There are a couple of relatively inexpensive shareware utilities that can help you out.  Until my Ameritch account was swallowed up by SBC Yahoo, (allowing me to use that login, now) I was using Web2pop.

I am not a proponent of advertising vendors in responses, but I really have not found a better way yet.

Good point.  You need Yahoo Mail Plus:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is my first official post to EE.  Yep, hitting refresh looks pretty dumb,  LOL. Won't happen again.

Is there any way to retract a comment?

Nope.  Don't worry about it.  I was being more tongue-in-cheek than serious.  I didn't realize it was your first post, your profile shows you've been around awhile.

Anyway, lesson learned! :)

luinzi,

Go to yahoo mail > mail options > POP access and forwarding, and follow the instructions.

Good luck.
