Hello TAMOHA,

Do you have a free Yahoo account or paid account?  Do you have POP3 access for Yahoo?

If paid account setup Yahoo account, incoming protocol is POP3. Server is pop.mail.yahoo.com, port 110

Outlook protocol is SMTP. Sever is smtp.mail.yahoo.com, port 25. Authtentication required.

Hope this helps!

Please note. for free Yahoo account  there are no mail clients available. if you want your mail account to be configured with outlook express for free then try using gmail. Gmail can support your need.

Free Yahoo account from most international regions like Yahoo Canada and Yahoo UK has free POP3/SMTP access.

For free Yahoo accounts like Yahoo.com (Yahoo US) or Yahoo India, you can use a third party program like YPOPS!  to act as gateway between Outlook Express and Yahoo interface.
