Error Setting Up Entourage
Posted on 2006-11-21
I am trying to set up Entourage so that it will pull from my yahoo email account. I am setting up from my personal MacBook laptop.
When I go to Account Settings to set up the address, I start the Account Setup Assistant. I enter my email address and click on the next arrow. It tells me that Automatic Configuration is Confirmed and I click on the next arrow. Under Verify and Complete settings, I enter my password. The screen reads as follows:
My Name = My Name
My Email Address = My yahoo email address
Account ID = My yahoo email address without @yahoo.com
Password = My password (correct, I double checked)
Incoming Mail Server = pop.mail.yahoo.com
Incoming Mail Server Type = POP
Outgoing Mail Server = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
I click on the next arrow. Under Verify Settings, I click on the Verify My Settings button. It waits a little and then gives the following message:
Some of your account settings are incorrect. Click the left arrow and verify the items highlighted in red. To complete setup without verifying your account settings, click the right arrow.
I click on the back arrow, and the red items are my Account ID and Password, which I confirm again, and repeat the above process with the same issues.
I try to proceed without clicking on the Verify My Settings button, skip the verification and click finish, but it does not work properly.
Any clue on what I need to change to make this happen?
