Setting up Outlook to Read my Yahoo account

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.

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.
