    You would need to setup Outlook as a "POP3" account when setting up your profile. You'll need the incoming and outgoing server addresses from Yahoo to configure in Outlook.

    Greetings contrain !

    You need a Yahoo account that has POP3 access.  Paid and free international accounts (except Yahoo India) have POP3 access.

    If you have a free account, you need a third party program to act as gateway between Yahoo interface and Outlook. YPOPS is such a program

    Here is how to configure YPOPS and Outlook 2003
