Doesn't Yahoo have a captcha text that requires to be entered when logging in?

Please access the web interface and check the security settings for your Yahoo plus account as well as the provided help section on configuring Outlook  for Yahoo Plus.

Also, check if your pc has virusguard/firewall settings put in place recently. If so, disable these and try again to connect using Outlook.

On the Outlook version that you use, in account settings, is there an option to test email account settings?

In Outlook 2003 it was something like:
Tools > Email Accounts > View/Change email accounts > click next - select change > Test account settings

Note that you will need to select the applicable email account if you have multiple accounts.

What happens when you do this test please?
