i have tried to create an acoount with outlook with a yahoo email account. i have removed the existing account(not with yahoo). whenever i try to get mail the username and password pop up. this usually means the password of email account is in error. i can login the yahoo account via the internet no problem. outlook seems to be keeping old info or cannot save the new password. i have removed outlook and the inbox in the c-drive.
